swapping seat covers

bought a 05 F350 which has some wear on the door side edge of the driver's seat bottom, probably from sliding out since the truck had no step or nerf bars. I'[m thinking of swapping the passenger and driver seat cover from the bottom cushions which would place the worn area on the passenger's left side next to the console. Any experience with this out there? I'd appreciate any hints, shortcuts, etc or a strong warning not to try it

you cant really do that.seats are built so that the inside is on the right on the drivers side and left on the passenger.i used to do car upholstery.wish it was that easy though.if you do have them recovered make sure they rebuild that part of the seat as the foam in that area is also probably worn.tends to be the case.

Thanks Big Angry. I was only thinking of swapping the covers off of the seat bottoms, not the seats themselves. They look identical, but I'm not the upholsterer. The foam seems ok, it just the thread fraying along the outside seam.
