Nope, no rings just velcro strips in the crevices and some clips here and there so go slow when removing the cloth covers, I had to re-glue 1 strip back on. Those will look Great ! Just a heads-up if you have the 3-piece center console take your time pulling apart as not to break the plastic clips. Console was the only part of the install that gave me a hard time, I use a second pair of hands and a screen roller to get the leather wrapped around and seated in the groove. Also you might want to get under the truck and spray some good penetrasting fluid in the holes they are exposed and I thought a couple were gonna snap ! All-in-all it wasn't bad just set a day or two aside so you can take your time. Best of luck and any questions dont hesitate to ask or PM me ! It is very satisfying and beats spending around $700 which is what my closest Katzkin dealer wanted just to install.

Looks great , however I would have sent them back . I would not want their logo on my seats unless they were will to pay for the kit / install / and a monthly advertizing fee .
I never understood why some people logo and decal their rides for free . Now having a sponsorship is a different story . Note to Dodge..... I will be happy to drive the new Viper with huge Viper logos all over it . Just an FYI

I let them do their Katzkin Logo on them because it saved me about $800, and I actually like their logo although they had apparently just changed the style of it soon before I ordered them, but it's still a cool logo, and I thought it was well worth the savings.

After looking at the pictures again , I am digging the orange . Might have to think about restitching my black leather with orange thread...... To many ideas and only 24 hours in the day. I have so many projects in he works I will have plenty of time to think it over .

how are the Katskins holding up after almost a year? I am considering a set of them for my Ram, I have also found an upholsterer here in Houston to do a complete custom set front and rear for just under $950 installed.

I also thought about katskins but considering how terribly awful the seats in our 3rd gen rams are, I'm going to swap in a set from a totalled 4th gen with the high back buckets. Those seats are amazingly comfortable compared to ours which feel like plywood wrapped in cloth... I hope they fired the designer of the 3rd gen interiors. A real mint used 4th gen set front and back can be had for about 1100-1200 bucks plus you get full power (even reclining) heat and a/c if you hook it up right. It cant hurt to look into that option as well..

I actually dont have a problem with the comfort of my seats. I do admit the fabric they use is not very durable especially for my Lone Star Edition where I have to step up and step down to get in and out. the left edge of the drivers seat is tearing at the seam of the seat to the side. I dont need the heated seats here in south Texas. Once I set my seat position I hardly ever have to adjust unless I have backseat passengers.
