Under instrument panel, there is no listing for the switch panel for the seats in the center stack. I would guess that the heating panels are the same, but the controls are different. I'm having no luck finding the panel.
I ordered the panel including the heating switches at my Dodge dealer for 70 US. And I bought the Mopar heated seats kit at Ebay. Lets see if it works.

I also wrote to Katzkin but didn't get any answer yet. The Katzkin Interior Selector for other Jeep models like the Wrangler in Dark Slate Gray says that the correct color is Dark Graphite. Guess I will stay with this color in one-tone and R/T style and contrast dual stitching. Still don't know which color matches the Light Slate Gray for the contrast stitching.

Keep me posted as to whether the switch panel is compatible with the heater kit. I will wait to proceed until I hear how this works out for you. Good luck.

I just wanted to order my Katzkin seats at Shopsar, but they kind of changed their configurator and I really don't know what to answer:

- Is front lean back 'High' or 'Low'?
- What size are your front seats?
- What size is back seat lean back?
- What size is back seat cushion?

A few days ago their configurator was much easier and there weren't these seat questions, cause the Nitro has only one seat style since the start in 2006. Help! With the sample book I finally got the correct colors for the SXT with Dark Slate / Light Slate interior: Dark Graphite and Ash.

Are they the only seller you can buy from? Since these are made to order, they are trying to cover their butt! I have no idea what he is asking you!

ShopSAR is the only seller that ships to Austria. Even Katzkin recommended to order at Katzkin Leather Seats, E&G Classic Grilles, Lloyd Floor Mats, and Chrome Auto Accessories

I just checked their web site. They are located just outside of New York City, on Long Island, not far from where I grew up. They seem to be a big organization, someone I would trust to do business. I would contact them again and ask for another CSR, someone with more experience; possibly someone who can decode what this new guy was asking for. Since you are so far away, they probably do not want to mess up your order, so I have to commend them for this. But, you have to understand what they are asking you. Thanks for the link. Now I know where to get my seats when I am ready, if my local upholstery shop does not carry Katzkins.
Possible explanation: low back vs high back bucket seats, does the back seat recline? These questions would seem to me to be irrelevant as I do not believe the design of the seats has change since the Nitro's introduction to the market. My front passenger seat has a plastic back and folds flat to make a desk/parcel shelf. Maybe this is what he is referring to. Also, maybe there is a difference between the US version and the export version, but I am not familiar with the export version's differences other than exterior modifications: lights, front bumper.

It's no person who asked me these questions. It's the online configurator with more than enough answer options.

You can find these answer possibilities here:

Aa for the colors. I will take One-Tone Dark Graphite with Contrast Double-Stitches in Ash and the Dodge Emblem (797) on the front seats leanback. I think that darker seats in R/T style will look cooler than Two-Tone leather in Dark Graphite with Ash inserts.

Thanks for the information. I checked it out this morning, and it very self explanatory. There is a link at the bottom of their home page: contact us, where you can email them any questions. Are you going to try to install these yourself, of is there a shop locally that can do this for you? Good luck.

I installed my Katzkins today and will post some pics later. The color I chosen is perfect.
