Help me choose a leather color
 
I am getting Katzskin leather for my ram, and have been debating colors. I want something in the red,black or white scheme. My truck's white.

I would get all white, but I think it would get dirty easy? So I am thinking all black with red inserts and red stitching. Or all red seats, with white stitching.

I think all red seats with white stitching would just look sick IMO.

Based off the below photos, what would look good in the truck? The sub box in the back seat has two 12"s currently, when I get leather I will be ordering a Fox Acoustics Dual 12" under-seat enclosure. Its the best for my year.

I think black with white center panels would be good, maybe some red stitching to throw that in too!

I like the white stitching idea ! Have you considered graphite, or gray with the red inserts ? I have a set of Katzkins on the way, I ordered them on the 3rd of Febuary and it's been a horrible wait ! I chose Grabhite with Orange/Barracuda inserts, Orange Stitching, and Katzkin logos on the seat-backs. Good luck with the color choice, and keep us informed ! :smileup:

Oh wow, I love the idea of a dark grey, with red inserts, and red stitching. That is a possible idea!

Are you planning to install them yourself?

sk8noregon 03-20-2011 08:30 PM

I am doing the install myself. I chose the graphite main color to keep a good flow with the rest of the interior but still look custom with the inserts and stitching. And I noticed we have the same color interior so I thought I'd throw the idea out there. I already have the back seats removed, and I'm working on a little foam repair on the drivers seat right now, they are supposed to arrive this week, and the weather is supposed to be wet so I'm preparing for fast and easy seat removal ! Are you also planning on install yourself ? There are a couple good write-ups on it in here.

Yes, I do plan on installing them myself. The install cost labor wise is more then what the seats themselves will cost me. So It's no doubt I'll do this mod myself.

I plan on just buying a new drivers seat cushion, or are they easy to repair? Mine is pretty much cut through due to the poor seat design.

Where did you order from? On ebay I can get them for about $650 shipped.

sk8noregon 03-20-2011 09:16 PM

Yes, I ordered mine through eBay for that price, a little more actually cause I ordered some extra material. Mind me asking who you ordered through ? I thought about purchasing a new cushion, then right before I did Someone posted a great thread on the repair and I'm going that way, much cheaper ! I'll look for the links and post them for you.

These are a couple of very helpful threads for the both of us !

I haven't ordered mine yet, its a summer mod for me. Just got done doing everything else on my truck though.
Thanks for the links! I read about the fix before, I think I might just get new foam though. Mine is bad.
