    Every couple months I clean & condition my leather interior & I have had friends tell me I have an ocd about my truck.I don't really,I guess I'm just kinda anal about keeping my stuff nice;I just like it clean & new looking no matter it's age.I've had my Tacoma over 2 yrs.now & when you get in it still smells like freshly installed leather.Anyway,I was wondering what my TW brothers are using to care for their leather ints.This is what I have used for awhile now & it works well for me.
    I start by wiping down with Mequiar's Gold Class rich leather foam cleaner & conditioner.You need to be careful with this stuff & spay it on your rag not the seat;if it sets on the leather in one spot for more than a few seconds you will see it for awhile.I then go over lightly with Tanners Preserve Leather cleaner from Eagle Ottawa in the pump spray,again spray on rag.They also make a good conditioner,but I prefer Wilsons Leather Lotion.Here's a few pics:

    Thanks, my wife is just about to buy a Jeep Wagoneer and I was wondering what we should use to keep the leather soft and hydrated.

    Subscribed. I'm curious if there are any products that would bring some old leather back from the dead.

    You can't complain when your seats still look that good. Keep up what you are doing and let the naysayers suck golfballs.:thumbsup:

    at my local auto body supplier they sell a spray to restore leather.

    It's like a tint where you have to match the color, but it should work good for really damaged leather.

    on my truck the leather is new so I simply use meguiars leather cleaner and conditioner.
