2013 XLT 302A 145" Screw
They aren't seat covers ? What are they ?
They are padded. The added a good bit of padding to my 16 seats. Feels brand new.Curious too, did it change seat comfort/softness at all? Wondering if the Katzkins are just leather lining, or have some foam padding as well.
Leather in my 15 feels like no foam between it and the springs, is sorta uncomfortable despite leather being in great shape.
I found they revised the seats in later years, they look similar (different stitching pattern) but are so much more plush & comfortable. This was in a couple trucks that while younger, had way more miles and so theoretically more seat time than mine.
I’ve been thinking of grafting later-year seats in, but maybe this is a better route?
To the Google!
Sorry man, but if your seats are looking worn, this is a great option.
Good point. Katzkins actually gives you a list of certified installers to choose from. I actually went and looked at Google images for the company to see how there end results look before I decided.The Katzkin stuff is great, quality and fit, but I just want to say that I have seen them look good and look poorly. The installer makes a big difference. Just like window tinting, paint, etc. Ask to see some of the installer's work before you choose someone.
I believe that the dealerships that equip some of their "builds" with Katzkinz actually use the vendor(s) that are Katzkinz certified. It only makes sense.Good point.

Lol my justifiactaion for spending money on the seats instead of using it to pay it down was that I am going to have this truck for a while, and I want to be able to enjoy it for the time I have it.I had also considered swapping in a different set of seats with a different color...why?
Ever had teenagers?
I have what I think is considered tan or camel interior, which is okay for me but my kids like to leave calling cards when they borrow it...
Would be cool to have a dark brown to match the two tone line color. Door panels as well.
black would work too.
Sigh. I need to stop spending money on the truck and put it towards paying it off. Haha
I want a Lariat but with a XLT budget. I had a dealer say they would put in the katzkin in an XLT.I believe that the dealerships that equip some of their "builds" with Katzkinz actually use the vendor(s) that are Katzkinz certified. It only makes sense.
I've seen a few amazing interiors, and NOT just F150 or even Ford, that were using Katzkinz leather on the seats, console, and even door panels and armrests.

I’ve used those pliers many times. I’ve upholstered a few of my classic cars with kits that companies make OEM Looking covers. No velour diamond tuck in my classic car if you know what that is. Ha ha.You remove the existing seat cover, whether it is fabric or leather. They aren't aftermarket seat-covers in the traditional sense. They don't "go over" existing fabric or leather.
Although you can install them yourself, for professional results you would have a professional upholstery tech install them.
I know that I don't know how to use those hog nose pliers properly.

Exactly, I’m hoping to hang on to it a good while.Lol my justifiactaion for spending money on the seats instead of using it to pay it down was that I am going to have this truck for a while, and I want to be able to enjoy it for the time I have it.
I can rationalize anything if I try hard enough.Exactly, I’m hoping to hang on to it a good while.
But wife says it’s to uncomfortable for long trips (a HUGE part of its charter!), so really she’s kinda forcing my hand here, and it’s actually financially prudent by keeping from purchasing a whole new vehicle, right? RIGHT??!!
We can rationalize any purchase of truck parts.
