KING RANCH SEAT -CONDITIONER?

I feel the reason I bought the King Ranch model, was for that great interior. It was pretty darn nice when it was new, but we all know how the sun smoked the crap out of it pretty quick. One day it was still looking good, than the next day it was like WTF!! I kept my front buckets covered up for years, but what good is having that interior if you cant look at it.
Ive tried alot of conditioners over the years, and Restoration Hardware years ago had the best stuff I ever tried, since then they stopped selling it. So who has a name of something that works well on keeping the leather soft, and the color even???

thanks

Lexol cleaner and conditioner.

I'm using the King Ranch conditioner now. Wife loves it for the leather chair in the living room.

I need to use it more often though.

Once a year I use Lexol cleaner and then follow it with Lexol conditioner. It brings the color back and really moisten it up. Bick 4 is what I was use monthly when I remember. Moistens the leather up really good and does not leave a residue. I love the King Ranch interior but it is alot of work.

My seats were grey when I bought the truck. I was amazed at how good a job Lexol did bringing my seats back. Multiple applications of it seem to have darkened the leather so I am changing to Lexol brand neatsfoot oil to see how it does.

In the southeastern U.S. I can find it at Tractor Supply Stores, any shop that works on saddles or boots/shoes, and of course by mail order. If you have to mail order go ahead and get a bottle of Lexol Vinylex. My truck had been a landscape owner/foremans truck and was filthy from top to bottom. After cleaning the dash I still had brown stains down in the textured dash top. The Vinylex dissolved the dirt and removed it then a wipe with a warm, wet rag took the shine from the Vinylex off. The dash looks new now.
