I swapped out my stock seat covers (combination pleather and cloth/vinyl) for the Mopar/Katzkin "tuscany" leather package. Man is it nice and I am very happy! They allow any stitch colour, any embroidery and inserts or perforation. I also added the Mopar seat heater package at the time as the R/T didn't have a heated seat option (I did the console wiring and they did the seat heater as part of the leather swap).

The cool thing with this Mopar arrangement with Katzkin is that they add this to your vehicle VIN and do full warranty on it (even if you have extended warranty), so any issues are covered down the road. From order to install it was only 8 days, considering it came out of California and they waited a few days on me to get time off work for the install, that was pretty good for custom seats the way I wanted!

I went to Eastway Chrysler in Scarborough and paid $1100 CAD all in for my R/T 2 front seats (standard cab) in the premium Tuscany leather, which included installation. There are other lower cost leather or combo options btw. There are tons of colour swatches to choose from, including swede.

I think a Quad cab front and rear was $1400. Talk to Adam the parts manager and tell him Glen sent you and he will give you a good price :-)
