King Ranch Seats

Hey guys,
I recently noticed my king ranch seat started coming apart at the seam...
I don't see this as being any good, anybody have any suggestions to repair it???

Mine looks exactly the same way. I was told by an upholstery shop that I'd have to take off the whole bottom seat piece of leather and have it sewn back using the machine. Apparently the leather is too thick to sew by hand. They estimated 150 bucks labor and all to take it off and sew it back. Think I might just let them and have them fix my heated seat while they've got it off, of course it stopped working too. You heard any other ideas?

yea you will have to get that fixed at a shop. If someone would of taken care of the seats and cared for them the proper way that probably would not of happened. Its all about preventive maintenance.

Do the threads/seam need leather lotion to not break down?

BTW I recently bought this truck at an auction so the previous owner didn't take care of the seats not me.

Same with mine, the seam was torn when I bought the truck. Looks like it's not going to be an easy/cheap fix though

the leather is getting dry. probably got wet and let dry improperly. youll need to condition them or use something like a neatsfoot (baseball glove) oil to soften them up so that seam can be resown.

since I got mine in Nov. I've put 3 treatments of the Lexol leather treatment on the seats and the difference is unbelievable. I just picked up a bottle of the neatsfoot oil to start using because I hear it doesn't darken the leather as much. It definitely makes a difference though.
