Front Seat Leather replacement

My drivers side front seat has become badly ripped. Wondering if anyone has had any luck getting it recovered at an upholestry shop or do the make a factory replacement seat cover that I can install my self?

Had a hole in my drivers seat when I bought truck & arm rest was wornout. Wasn't a match but that was my option. Place had it one morning cost me $150.00. I would check around with custom car intirior places. Unless I look hard can't tell the dif. They used a thicker material as they were wear spots.
Black leather so it was easier. Good luck. Check junk yards?

yeah, I am going to check with some local places today. wouldnt mind getting some thicker material as it is right where i get in and out of the truck and it is super thin in the place it first started to wear

Found this on ebay and was wondering if this woudl look pretty much like a stock replacement, or if anyone else has used it.

Yeah, I was going to say that they should be available from Ford. When my previous Harley truck was broken into they ripped my passenger seat in a few places. I got a new seat cover from Ford. It had to be ordered but it was the correct seat cover.

Are the covers pretty easy to put on?

Might be easiest to just get the cover from the seat shop
