Factor oem seat upholstery

I don't like how aftermarket seat covers look. I'd like to re upholster my seats- crew cab front and back. Has anyone done this? I've re upholstered a few air cooled Volkswagen seats in my time so I
Know how to do it.

Where can I get the oem upholstery tho?

seatshop.com. The sell original leather seat covers. However a better alternative would be looking into katzkin covers.

if you ever find out let me know. I looked everywhere for cloth replacement and couldnt find any. Leather is nice, but anymore its 100+ around here and super humidity. That combined with my fat @$$ is not fun with leather.

exactly!! That's why I don't want it, I'm in Texas so very similar weather..I like cloth for that fact.

I just ordered some seat covers from Car Cover, Seat Covers, Dash Cover, Floormats, Sunshields - Manufactured by Coverking. I looked around on the 6.0 interior section and found a few good feedbacks on their covers. $150 for each row, not too bad. So I just ordered them, I can post back once I get them with pics and give my feedback on em if you'd like.

i would appreciate it. Ive went back and forth on those very sets for a while now. This is mainly due to the fact that every time I search for some, I always end up on a website where these are being sold. I think its pretty much the only option besides calling the dealer up and ordering new cloth. I know that would be out of this world though.

Alrighty finally got the seat covers installed, I'm not excitingly impressed, but it's better than the stained seats that I had in this nice truck..It'll do till I can replace the seats or have them re-upholstered..

I'll have pics up here in a few

I'm not real happy with these, since they were $150 for the front row and $150 for the back. I didn't even put the cover on the center front console because it looked so sh!tty..I had the covers fitting tighter, but after a few days with people getting in and out they seemed to have loosened up. The bagginess of the covers is what bothers me, other than that I like the material and the color layout..I'ma ***** a little bit and see if they can re-make them so that their tighter because it's irritating the sh!t outta me the more I look at the pictures!
