pulled the trigger on leather seat replacement on my 2017 Laredo!

Long story short a customer of mine owns an upholstery shop and agreed to trade some product in exchange of the leather kit and install.

the kit is from katskinz and replaces the factory cloth.

anyone have any experience with this product?

There's and old thread here:

https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/...edo-e-1396795/

I hear a lotta good about them

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.....

That manufacturer has a good reputation and is the one most often used by dealers to add leather to Laredos, etc. I've heard they can be a bear to self-install, however, so take your time when you do the deed.

If I'm not mistaken, Katzkin makes the factory leather seats for Jeep.

my customer has an upholstery company so he's doing the install as part of the deal.

Interior is pretty dusty right now (2 months of baseball daily) but you get the idea.

Awesome thanks! did they replace the center console leather as well? the kit mine is getting has a new leather cover for it, but mine is already leather from the factory, as well as on the door panels
