Yea king. Ranch puts out an awesome conditioner it's a little pricey, if it's more than what u wanna spend then I would go with lexol cleaner and conditioner, also just the normal leather care products at ur local parts store works fine to.

alright i was trolling around on the 6.0 forum and those guys were talking about the lexol cleaner staining your leather, they were saying the conditioner was good though. I have not had it stain mine but, i dont want to put any info out there that could possibly mess anyones truck up. So use at your own risk haha.

Personally try not to use any type of a cleaner on these seats. Form 2003-10 models. The 2011 have a different leather, but I have had 3 of these and found that you vacuum the seats with a soft brush and a damp no abrasive cloth. The KR conditioner is a exact match of Meguairs Gold Class last I had seen so those of you that like that can save you some money. Lexol conditioner with a soft applicator works great. Personally I don't believe you can ever do it with conditioning the leather. My favorite is Cali's leather life. It may start with a K and not a C. Can't recall at this second. I apply by putting in hands and rub it in. This stuff is fantastic! I do my seats once a month with no wear or fading here in N.Texas.

I used the lexol cleaner and conditioner. The key with the cleaner was to use it very very sparinly on worn areas like the armrest and drivers seat. The conditioner seemed to work awesome. My drivers seat and steering wheel are the worst (truck has 130k) and they look damn near new after two apps of the conditioner a week apart. the rest of my leather looks like its off the showroom floor. I just wanted to maintain it. LEXOL for me.

I have read that Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo can be used to clean the leather. I haven't used it yet. I did find a product called 4way care by Fiebing's $5 for 16oz. at a local farm store in the saddle section. It works great it cleans and conditions. I bought the truck used a year ago and the previous owner didn't do anything to the seats.

apparently whomever owned my truck took great care of the interior. Th drivers seat is worn buy not nearly as bad as some of the lariats i looked at. Also some KR interiors turned me away from the truck. If someone neglects something as simple as the leather what do you think that motors going through lol.
