King Ranch seats

So whats the deal with these king ranch seats. They are beautiful at the dealer ship then you see one say 6 months old and they are faded out, you go back a year or two and the have almost no color. At first i thought it was just a neglect of the owners around here ( coal place) but after looking on e bay they look like they where shipped to the sun and back.

this is a picture of one out of a 04. most of them i have seen are like this if not worse. So whats the deal, how do you keep them for doing that.

You have to really take care of them, like you would a well worn saddle. I have had saddles that took more abuse, but taken care of they look like the day I bought 'em. That picture looks bad

I've had my KR for 13 months now and the color is still the same as it was new. I have conditioned it only about 8 times with the ArmorAll Gel leather conditioner. This is a very soft leather and I guess it needs all the attention it can get to keep it looking good.

That pic just looks like it was neglected a bit, hope I don't let mine get away to looking like that.

I use saddle conditioner I got from the feed store and it works really good. Mine looked faded when I got the truck but it hasn't gotten any worse. I do wish I had the rear bench seat vs. the captains though.

I am on my 3rd Fing Ranch. When you take delivery, there is a BIG TAG on the seat that stresses the importance of conditioning the leather ever 6 months. I had my 04 for 2 years and they looked brand new when I traded it in.

cool deal.. i love the color but dont want to have the "white seat" king ranch in a few years. My first pick would be black interior but for some reason ford only gives you that with sport option.
