Not very good pics - cell phone camera - but here you go... I love it. But I spoke to a guy here in town with same in his truck and he warned that the leather is thin and said his tore on the side of the driver's seat after just a few months. Mine's 2 months old so we'll see - but I love it!

Sorry to hear you aren't happy with your Katzkin's. They won't tighten up with use,it sounds like maybe they aren't correctly installed. I'm an authorized dealer installer for Katzkin Interiors and have sold and installed close to 80 interiors in the last 2 yrs with zero complaints. I've attached some photos of my own truck that I did lat year.

I'm considering the Katzkins, but the wrinkles I see in almost all the pics really bother me. Is this an installation issue or just the way they are made?

Might be the way they were installed. Might not be pulled tight enough and the installer not taking the time to work the wrinkles out. I love mine. The set I have looks like the two tone pic from page 1, light gray inserts and stiching and dark gray outside. Also have the steering wheel and center console wrapped to match as well. Mine were already installed form the dealer, so not sure how much they were, I think the sticker said $1200-$1400

I also read somewhere on a Ram forum from a Dodge tech posted up stating the "leather trimmed" sport seats are pleather, not real leather, same with the dash pad.

I love my leather, the wrinkles do go away. The leather is thick as long as you don't get the vented leather with the holes.

I have read a few post of the stock leather ripping at the seams.

I'm 350lbs and the seats have held up just fine no signs of wear yet after 2+ years on them.

They also held up to a break in with glass all over the seats and the thief crawling all over the seats. There is only minor evidence of scratches no holes. They are quality..

I also have Katzkin in my 94 ram the seats are from a 2004 ram that rolled and was written off.
