King ranch seat question

I have heard of guys using brown boot polish on their king ranch seats with good results.

Does anyone have any info on this? I've tried several conditioners, KR, ranchitout's brand, and now just applied leather CPR. But the seats are still stiff. I'm thinking of dying them if the boot polish idea is a bad idea. My seats aren't horrible but the first owner didn't care for them. My armrest is horrible and beyond repair I think, so is my steering wheel.

Please give me opinions and pics of before and after your application would be great also. Thank you guys, I love this forum.

Also, any info about dying would be great too.

Go to a feed store/tack shop and get some leather conditioner. It's supposed to be saddle leather, I guess you could treat it like saddle leather

Ok I'm thinking I'm gonna use Obenaufs leather oil and heavy LP. Apparently does wonders for the leather.

We've been using Obenauf's on our hunting boots and mule-tack for years. I finally decided today I'm going to try it on my truck seats. I've just got the heavy duty lp, have never used any of the oil.

I've tried the Duragloss that is supposed to be the same as the King Ranch stuff, it smelled great and looked good while putting it on, but the next day the seats looked the same. Maybe needed multiple multiple applications to beat the previous owner.

Have also tried the Leather Honey that gets good reviews, it felt like honey going on (nasty sticky), but also couldn't tell much difference in the seat the next day.

I've tried the other stuff too but seems to last for a day or two then its done.

Thanks

I have used lexol leather cleaner in the past along with the KR brand leather conditioner. But that is all I have had experience with.
