What did you end of paying in US $? At the Katzkin site, a 2-row set is around $2K, suggested retail, but at the Dodge/Mopar site, they are around $1K, depending on what version. Thank you.

About 1.000 US. For this money the seats are amazing good quality. I love them. Don't buy at Dodge/Mopar sites. Buy directly at Shopsar. I really have to thank them for all their support.

Thank you. I just spoke with a local company that does this type of installation. If I were to buy the Katzkin leather from my dealer, they would use this shop for installation, anyway. Their price is around $1,200 USD installed, if I buy through them. They use a few different leather companies including Katzkin, and they have a very good reputation here in town. They can also install the seat heaters for a separate charge, so this will probably be the route I will choose when I am ready. I will try and get a leather cover for the console lid, also. I am a perfectionist, and really do not want to attempt to do the installation myself. I do not have all of the correct tools for the clips, etc. anyway! I have seen pictures on other forums where the guys have installed these kits themselves, and although they look good, there are wrinkles/bubbles that do not suit me! I hope it was the installation, and not a poorly made kit!

Right after installation, the leather has some wrinkles. The leather needs time and people to sit on it to settle. After a while the seats will look perfect. I didn't make the installation myself, cause I'm also a perfectionist and didn't want to take any risk. What I regret is that I took the Mopar heated seats kit. Do yourself a favour and buy the Katzkin heated seats kit with the leather interior.

If you change your mind and want to do it yourself, there is the Katzkin installation kit, that has all tools you need for installation. Be sure to take the correct colors for your interior. Take a look at the Katzkin Sample Book. Available directly at Katzkin, Shopsar and Ebay.

These look really good. I'm looking at charcoal with red inserts and red stitching - no logo. Did they install the pads for the seat heaters? Where will you install the switches? I'm still looking at the Mopar heaters - 1 year warranty through the dealer.

Thx. I love the one-tone look. The correct Katzkin color for the Nitro interior is Dark Graphite (with Ash contrast double stitching), not Charcoal. Mopar seat heater pads are installed.

I'm still working on solutions for the Mopar heaters kit problem. I ordered a few of the OEM switch panels and some different switches from Check, the production company behind the relabeled Mopar kit.

Keep me informed as to what switch you come up with, that will work with the harness from the Mopar kit. The Mopar kit gets its power by plugging into the power port/lighter outlet on the dash. I did notice that some of the kits from your links just have a terminal for positive and negative. Is there a fuse in the harness, or would it use the 20A fuse for the power outlet if one chose to hook it up this way? Thank you for all of your help. I wish there were more people posting on this forum.

By the way, do these have a distinctive leather smell?

Dodge Nitro 2-tone Graphite Light Gray Leather interior



Published on Sep 5, 2013

We built the leather trimmed interior kit in this video for the 2007 - 2011 Dodge Nitro in two-tone Graphite with Lt. Grey INSERTS. We also finished all of the perimeter seams in contrasting Lt. Grey Double-Stitching. This custom 2-tone leather color combination is an awesome match for the factory Medium Slate Gray interior that is most common in Dodge Nitros. You can upgrade the factory cloth in your Dodge Nitro using any of the 100+ LeatherSeats.com top grain leather colors including our brand new buttery soft Ecstasy full grain leather line. For more information or FREE leather samples call us toll FREE at 866-NEWSEAT.
