So I was wanting to get new leather seats for my truck. The katzkin leather I heard is popular, it's a kit that just pulls over the seat i believe, a dealer would install it for 1600 buck, that's material cost and labor . 

Anybody done this to there truck before? Does it seem to good to be true, maybe cheap product or something else?

Also leatherseats.com has some nice looking seats you can make for 1300bucks, not including install.

Roadwire and  Katzkin both make new leather kits for seats but they replace the existing upholstery cloth or leather and reuse the existing seat foam.

Well, I'm not sure on price, someone quoted me over 3 grand once using cow hide. I thought that was outrageous.  

 

I would order whatever new foam I could, bottom part at the least

So quiet. Has no one reupholstered there seats?

What would be a good price for full leather?

Supposedly katzkin does front seats, center, and back bench.

I have not. And with some of the prices I have seen I started looking on line and lucked into front seats cheap. My back seat is fine. I would like leather but for the money I would rather spend it else where.

I hate lather seats, too hot in summer too cold in winter :2cents:

Unless you have a air conditioner in garage and heated seats. They sure look nice though.

I know what you mean. To be honest, I am better off spending money else where, but if the opportunity came and I had extra money saved up, it would be a nice upgrade, even if it's the front seats only.

I have leather now, well it's a hybrid, half leather, half cloth, kinda weird. Leather is shot, super hard, previous owner didn't condition well.

I'll keep an eye out and an ear to the ground, maybe a good deal will show up.

But if anyone else has done something like katzkin or a leather upgradr let me know.
