My Drivers seat cover has started to wear through. I am kicking myself for not getting Aftermarket Covers to go over them but now the damage is done. I went to farm and fleet and picked up some cheap covers. I went to install them and one of the straps pulled right off, they looked as cheap as they cost too. So I took them back and got my money back. I stopped at the Dealer to price out the OE cloth cover. $200! just for the bottom cloth cover! I could not believe it, the parts guy says that the dealers cannot even sell complete seats anymore, they have to piece them out. So a complete seat will run $3000! He said it has to deal with law suits. People would buy an OE seat assy. and install it in something other than the vehicle it came out of. Then when they get in an accident, they sue the manufactuer.

Anyway, has anyone out there found a decent aftermarket seat cover?

Do they offer anything but leather? $789 is a bit too steep!
