TWENTY-THOUSAND-MILE KATZKIN WRANGLER ROAD TRIP CONCLUDES AT SEMA With Final Opportunity to Win All-New Leather Interior through Instagram Competition


LOS ANGELES – October 25, 2018 – With more than 75 project vehicles sporting customized Katzkin Leather interior packages on display throughout the entire SEMA show October 30th – November 2nd at the Las Vegas Convention Center, it’s Katzkin’s own 2018 Wrangler JL Rubicon shown at Booth #12439 in the North Hall that has probably achieved the most mileage. The SEMA show will mark the end of a 20,000-mile journey, known to many as the ‘Wrangler Road Trip,’ where the highly publicized and boldly designed Jeep will reach its final destination – and complete a consumer activation to win an all-new leather interior.

According to Katzkin Director of OEM Programs, Doug Johnson, not only has the Katzkin Jeep taken on a coast-to-coast run, but it’s seen both oceans and visited the legendary terrain of MOAB, Utah. “It’s been refreshing to see the excitement an aggressively bold design can inspire – and then, when the doors open up and the leather interior can be seen, the eyes become quite a bit larger,” said Johnson. “The Jeep brand itself has always had an enthusiastic following, but Katzkin brings an all-new affordable luxury into the mix with great patterns and unique stitching choices that can’t easily be found on a factory model vehicle.”

With a daring black and orange exterior wrap, the display vehicle’s luxurious yet sporty leather interior includes complementary Black and Orange leather, complete with Katzkin’s Suedezkin inserts and TekStitch diamond accents. The vehicle as shown also contains more than $7,000 worth of official Mopar accessories, including: 17x8 Beadlock Capable Wheels; 2-inch Lift Kit with Fox Shocks; 3-piece steel bumpers; Tailgate Reinforcement Kit; 8,000-lb Winch by Warn; All-Weather Mats; Scuff Plates and Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ tires.

Katzkin is the leader in custom automotive leather and has set the precedent in true customization of interiors and whether a vehicle is new or used, allows a customer’s personality to shine through. With more than 3,000 patterns and the ability to configure one’s vehicle to their own choices ranging from a factory grade to a more upscale Tuscany Leather, all interior transformations can be achieved in 24-48 hours from the time of configuration.
As Katzkin enters its 30th year at the specialty equipment show, the brand introduces its most durable interior choices yet: Katzkin XT. These leather and vinyl materials are the most tough and durable ever offered to the automotive aftermarket by Katzkin (2X more!). It is water, scuff and tear resistant and engineered to hold up under the most extreme driving conditions; perfect for off-roading in that Jeep Wrangler, and durable enough for the hardest-working pickup trucks.
Additional products on display will include new and exciting seat designs featuring Katzkin’s TekStitch diamond stitching, as well as full color creativity ranging from Hyper Yellow and Barracuda Red to Mango and Sapphire Suedezkin -- and everything in between.
Katzkin’s Wrangler Road Trip began this summer as a moving billboard across the country whereby consumers that spotted the Jeep could enter to win an all-new leather interior through social media. All consumers spotting the bold Katzkin Jeep and posting their sighting on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #KatzkinJeep, will be entered into a drawing to win an all-new Katzkin leather interior transformation. The contest continues through the 2018 SEMA show, and ends November 2nd, 2018.
