I use either the KR saddle oil that you can get from ford or KR or I use the brown bottle of Lexol. Works great and doesnt darken the leather.

If you want to keep the strong smell of leather use the KR oil. If you want to just keep the seats oiled with out the smell of leather and oil than use the lexol.

I definitely want to keep that leather smell. Thanks for the advice. Can I buy the KR oil somewhere or do I need to order it online?

Most ford dealerships have it or you can order it online. I havent compared prices to see which place is cheaper though.

Lexol is great and so is Kali's(sp)leather conditioner,another excellent product. Do not use anything that contains lanolines in it. As for I was advised by a high end leather shop will dry the leather out. I have had 3 of these trucks and my leather has never cracked or seam stitching break.

Anything you can use on saddle leather works great on these king ranch interiors. I too use lexol and you can pretty much find it anywhere.

Ok I bought a bottle of the KR Leather Conditioner and it worked great. My next question is how often do you fine gentleman oil your seats?

i do mine about every 6 weeks up front.. and 10 weeks in the back, i use the KR stuff from the king ranch site.. i have my windows tinted and always use a sunvisor in the front window. i also dont slide on my seat when i'm entering and exiting the truck.. i use the OH SH!T handle and pull my butt up off the seat... this will prolong the life of your seats stitching and look also.. and i'm always yelling and friends, family, and the old lady to do the same thing on the passenger seat... not to slide across the seat.. i may seem like an *** sometimes.. but i take pride in how my seats look when i'm showing it off.. its usually the first thing people comment on. this is KR #2 for me.. its a lot of extra maintenance but worth it in the end IMO
