    I recently bought a 2018 TRD Sport and I like to keep my vehicles in great condition. This is my first time owning leather seats. I'm wondering what you folks like for cleaning and conditioning the Leather.

    Thank you in advance.

    I have the leather cleaner and conditioner from chemical guys.

    I wipe down the leather with the cleaner and microfiber towel as needed and then I condition the seats twice a year.

    Leather shod be plush and soft. When it starts to get hard is when you will notice cracking starts.

    Also it’s really important to get high quality window films that block UV rays. Intense heat and UV radiation will kill your interior to include your leather. The films also prevent fading due to the radiation.

    It’s a detail a lot of people over look but it really helps maintain a good looking interior.

    You can get nearly clear films too so its not like you need to limo tint the truck for protection.

    I started with Lexol and was ok with it. I mainly use Chemical Guys and noticed they had a Leather Cleaner and Conditioner. Been very happy with it.

    I use ADAMS on my Corvette leather. They have a cleaner and conditioner. You can use the conditioner on all of your interior as well.
