Seat Covers?

Post by Randy S » Sun Aug 30, 2015 9:19 am

The seat on our 89 1500 is starting to pull apart at the seams. We like the support of the factory seat so not looking for a custom seat but want to find out if anyone sells direct factory replacement cover in the original brown color. Any replies would be very helpful. Thanks

You have a couple of options that have been thrown around here quite a bit.
- find a local upholsterer through Craigslist that can do it for you
- find another OEM seat on eBay that's in good condition
- get one of the covers off eBay ($50-$150) and do it yourself

I went the ebay route on my seat and although the result is not perfect, its better than a torn seat. Be sure to heat the seat pan with a heat gun a small section at a time for about 15 seconds prior to stapling or your staples will not penetrate and stay in the pan.
You will need an electric staple gun as well. air gun even better.
