So I just found out about this stuff today, and I planning on getting a newer truck this year (2012 and up). I've noticed in the newer trucks the leather seams cheaper and not as nice as my current 05. Just wondering if this stuff is worth it and what people who have it think of it quality and comfort wise.

I asked around a lot already and have only heard good things about the product. In fact i just removed my cloth covers yesterday and orderd my Katzkins today off Amazon for 550. I should have then on this week and i will update you when im finished.

Yes yes and yes!!!!! I would tear my stock leather out in a heart beat if somebody wanted to buy it right now. I installed just some plain jane black Katskinz in my old 07.5 half ton and absolutly loved the feel and look of the leather. Install it yourself and save a shit ton. I paid $550.00 for my crewcab and put the leather in myself. Took several hours cuz obviously you have to remove all the seats but it was surprisingly easy to do plus you get to deep-clean your interior while evrything is out.

I had stock leather in my old 06 LBZ and as soon as it cracked and discolored I did Katzkin and didn't look back! MUCH MUCH better than the OBS leather

honestly my 15's leather impressed me at the start but 8k miles of driving and the seats are showing more wear than expected. even with a good leather conditioning and cleaning

Can't compare, but I had cloth seats in my LMM before I went to Katzkins. I think it may be one of the best mods I've done to the truck. I genuinely enjoy driving my truck even more after doing the seats.

The driver side seat in my 06 is ripped, if I only replace the driver seat will it match up with the factory leather pretty close or should I at least do both front seats.

I helped a friend put katzkins in his '12 mega cab. The fit was amazing and the quality seemed top notch.

Looks like when I buy my new(er) duramax I'll be putting katzkin in it! It will give me a chance to make sure I get rid of most of the previous owners slime, only after I run through the rest of the truck and make sure there are no majors

Ive put 10k+ on the truck and mine still look brand new. I guess it can vary on weight/size of the person. But I condition mine regularly and I'm 6'2" 210. My Lexus showed wear at 5k and has only gotten worse. I'm over 70k on my '08 IS and it looks like a catchers mitt lol

Does anyone know where I can find an accurate part number for a 2007.5 crew cab. I want to make sure I am ordering the right set.

Dollar for dollar probably the best upgrade you can do.I replaced the cloth seats in my 07 Cummins with these and fell in love with my truck all over again.
