Hi folks!

 

Well, my King Ranch leather treatment, as recommended in owner's manual, arrived this week. I ordered it from the King Ranch store. Anyhow, I am about to treat the leather for the first time before the really cold weather sets in. So, it looks to me like the front and rear seating surfaces and the console lid are saddle leather, but what about the steering wheel cover, arm rests, head rests, dash boards? 

 

I have heard great reviews about the King Ranch leather treatment, but have also read that everything from saddle soap to stuff off the shelf at Wal-Mart works too. Any advice?

 

Thanks!

 

Harry

Any good leather treatment will work fine - there's no magic there.  Leather is leather.

I think the advertisements say "leather seating surfaces".  I would not expect any more !

The order guide describes it as "Unique King Ranch® Kingsville Antique Affect Leather Bucket Seating Surfaces" which means only the parts that touch your body are real leather.
