King Ranch website has what you are looking for. I like it, and use it about once a month or so. My seats don't get abused, and they stay soft. You don't want the leather to dry out.

There is a Lexol product that I used, and also, I did use regular saddle soap on them in the beginning.

Wanted to try the King Ranch stuff. Ordered 4 bottles. The truck smells new after I use it.

Sad to say though, we have a nice leather chair, and the wife used it once. Well, now I need to order more! She says it is the best stuff she has used on that chair. Gotta admit, the cat does sleep in it a lot more now!

How does the KR treatment compare to the Lexol?

I haven't used the King Ranch brand conditioner on mine yet, but I've used the lexol cleaner and conditioner. Lately I've been using leatherCPR and I think its much better than lexol. Still wanting to get some of the KR brand though.

I don't notice that much difference. Just maybe the smell later. Seems the I like the KR smell better after wards. Now, my wife though, she also has used everything mentioned so far, and likes the KR better.

Heres what you need to do, Go to an auto parts store, and get this stuff Lexol, it will be in two differant bottles. an orange and a brown. My king ranch seats were kind of faded, but when i used that stuff, I have never been as happy. It makes the seats really soft and adds the dark color back to them. I can send you a before and after picture if you want

Bakins49,

Would you mind posting them? I would love to see the difference. I have tried several products on mine but so far my favorite is Duragloss 221.


Steve

I know you're not talking to me but here's a before and after of mine. At this time I had treated mine with the lexol 4 times and once with the LeatherCPR. I still prefer the LeatherCPR though...

Amazing how these seats will look and stay looking great with a little care.

Those are great shot! Thanks for sharing them.
