I had heated/cooled perforated seats and I never had an issue. I can't tell you what would happen over 10 years or anything but short term no issues. The stuff I used (Duragloss) was very thin. Stuff seemed thinner than water. If you poured it onto a cloth or microfiber then applied to the seats I can't see it being an issue clogging anything up. I don't think it dries solid either.

My disclaimer is I used this on the newer King Ranch leather which I believe is different than just Lariat leather. Theory is leather is leather and there shouldn't be an issue but YMMV.

BoozeDaily Just posted this on another thread but try Duragloss 222 for King Ranch leather. Looks, smells, and works just like the King Ranch brand stuff for far less money. 32oz on Amazon for $20 or so.

wchain Also, our trucks leather is actually coated with a plastic like coating on top of the leather, so anything like lexol or neatsfoot will not 'soak' into it.

Read up on the detailing forums about Lexol leather treatment, doesn't have very many good reviews.

BluSTi Interesting...

I remember neatsfoot from way back in my youth from cleaning saddles, I hadn't considered that. I saw a nice deal on Obenauf's on Amazon last week, so I picked up some LP, but I looked a little closer at some of the wear areas and it looks like they need a pretty good cleaning. My steering wheel has some sort of "sticky" substance on the leather that I need to address too.

Thanks for the input folks!

BridgerMT Neatsfoot oil is a yellow oil rendered and purified from the shin bones and feet (but not the hooves) of cattle. "Neat" in the oil's name comes from an old English word for cattle.[1] Neatsfoot oil is used as a conditioning, softening and preservative agent for leather. In the 18th century, it was also used medicinally as a topical application for dry scaly skin conditions.

"Prime neatsfoot oil" or "neatsfoot oil compound" are terms used for a blend of pure neatsfoot oil and non-animal oils, generally mineral or other petroleum-based oils.

This is the stuff I use on saddles and it is awesome. I also take 180 grit sandpaper 1st and sand out any deep scratches in the seats. Then a heavy coat of of this with a clean wax pad and your seats will look new again.There is a smell to it but I like it.

throttlejocky316 I have always had good luck with using Lexol on my saddles and boots.

wchain I have had good luck with Zaino Bros Leather in a Bottle cleaner and conditioner.

BluSTi Copy, so far it's Bicks #4. Thanks!

mattastic13 The first time I used the Bicks, it DID take forever. But it turned the seats buttery soft.

Speaking of which....I need to treat my seats again.
