Bag Balm. just used this past weekend , Front Seats were cracked and creased bad , plus dried out. I had been using Adams leather every 3 months but didnt really make a diffrence. Smeared this stuff on thick and let it sit 2 days. The creases are relaxed now and leather is soft and it even allowed the foam to expand back on side bolsters . Seats feel much better.

It might be worthwhile to mention your seat issues to the dealer, folks. If you decide to make an appointment, give me a shout.

Come back and show off the new seat, RaptorScrew. I'm here if you need any help after your trip to the dealership.

72k on my 2011 ... The rest of the seats look flawless, its just the orange centers. It looks horrible because under the flaking is white LOL. Both front seats are like that and I rarely have passengers. Thanks for your response. ---

IMO whichever quality product you use as long as you do it often enough I think is best to prevent excessive wear and cracking. I use zymol and keep a bottle and the applicator in the back seat, the pad has absorbed so much conditioner from over the years that it is pretty "wet" now and I just wipe the seat down with it almost daily, without reapplying the conditioner. But every other week or so I do use a little conditioner. I daily drive mine, I am a fairly big guy and my truck is 3 years old and even tho the seat is broken in a little of course it still looks great.

I've got workers jumping in and out all day with no weird wear happening. Maybe the newer leather seats are made differently.......
The seats are all plastic/vinyl coated leather. As far as I know, the older King Ranches were the only ones that had untreated, uncoated top grain leather. How much of the leather conditioner products actually makes it down into the leather is what I want to know. If you're just wiping it on and off, it's not going to soak all the way down. If you are massaging it in, and really working the product into the seat, you stand a chance.

I've since moved on to the ADAMS cleaners and moisturizers. These are great products. The leather conditioner is applied with a foam pad, so you really do get to work it into the surfaces. Also doesn't leave that filmy slick finish and has SPF protection in it. I was truly blown away the first time I used and it brought back that new leather smell.

The key is a foam pad. Much better than any type of cloth. Even using your hand would be better than a cloth.

Yea I love my Adams leather conditioner too. I need to do mine more often, but overall has kept the seats looking pretty good. Drivers side definitely has more wear, but that's to be expected I guess.
