Katzkin was installed yesterday. Love the feel and look! My pics suck, I'll try to get better ones later. The Dark Graphite looks great! Flash makes them look lighter than they are.      

Here are mine after a couple weeks. Not warm here yet though, I expect them to get a bit tighter still.   I love the feel and smell of these seats.   Mostly just me in the truck.    

There are no hog clips on the seats. They are all easily removed with patience and some finger strength. its all clips. I watched some youtube videos on it. very easy. about 8hrs per truck on the

Install went well. Had some trouble with the seat bases for front seats. They were out of square a little. I would say make sure you have Staples. I thought I had some but couldn't find them. The videos I found were definitely helpful especially the jump seat.

My biggest issue was figuring out how to get the seats out without breaking anything.  Once I did one the other wasn't too bad, but figuring out how to get the first seat out without breaking clips is tricky.    You also have to go slow, it seemed like every single weather pack connector was different and had a different way that it unclipped.  

Yes, the center jump seat is an absolute pain in the A$$.  I probably spent almost the same amount of time on the jump seat as I did on the actual cover install on the other seats combined.  I would have never been able to do it without the videos I found on  youtube.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the katzkins. Every install looks sloppy to me. Loose leather and wrinkles all over the place and looks like a seat cover.  Oem is nice and tight fitting. Just my opinion though.

a professional installer would steam the wrinkles out. All leathers seats have wrinkles untIl they go out on their own in the heat or they are steamed out

Roadwire is much tighter than Katskinz.  My local shop switched to Roadwire because of the tight look right away.  No slop at all after install.
