appleman46 That makes more sense. I wouldn't imagine the whole seat cover would need to be replaced, just pop a few stiches take out the old upper and put in the new one. $600 is total BS. Glad everything worked out for you

Brennan2013 My dealer told me it would be $600 to replace the front seat uppers. They were going to pay $300 of it. That did not add up to me so I finally got my dealer to tell me the name of their installer. Went there this weekend. They are going to replace the front seat uppers with a new logo (of my choice and color) for $30. Yes, THIRTY DOLLARS. Now my dealership has some explaining to do..since they were trying to rip me off.

Little stuff like that bothers the he11 out of me.

GeckoJK I personally hate the Sahara and Rubicon stitched into the seats on the 13. I would have preferred they left the stitching off entirely.

I'm OCD like this too. I don't pay good money like that to get a job done incorrectly. If they can't do it correctly with the proper font etc then give up the contract and let someone more competent do it. It may be trivial but so isn't half the stuff that get's discussed here. What bothers one person might roll off another persons back.
That is my next step. thanks for the help

Besides.....those are not factory leather...they are Katzkins.

I would not worry about it and just enjoy the Jeep.

They look good!
Your right, I probably am the only one that will ever notice. It just bothers me for some reason.

2013 Sahara leather seats

I finally got my sahara about a month ago. The problem I am having is the leather seats the dealer installed for me. They were installed aftermarket by a sanctioned Katzkin dealer.
