Seat Covers..

With winter taking it's toll with the snow and whatnot I think it's time for seat covers.. I'm not trying to ruin these seats. Anyone have any suggestions? There are so many options i'm not sure which to go with.

Thankks.

What ever you do, make sure you get covers that have a soft backing on them, or they will mark up your seats since you have a KR. I always keep a towel in my truck that I sit on if I am dirty. I just keep it rolled up behind the back seat. When I need it I bring it out. Works for me rather than scratching up my KR seats.

In my Mustang I used beach towels as seat covers. Could get any interesting print I wanted, could throw in washing machine when needed, and was much cooler in the summer.

I used thin bungee cords and attached small clamps to the ends and used those to hold the towels in place.

I have "The Westerner" seat covers in my truck. They're like a saddle blanket pattern, which isn't HUGELY attractive but these seat covers are really tough.

The back one has always been on the rear seats since I got the truck for my ol' hound (RIP Bruiser),and now for my new hound(s) and the seats look like new underneath.

I can't honestly remember what the inner finish is like so they might not be good on King Ranch seats but they are something to consider. They're Canadian made and I don't remember them being very cheap. I think they were around $200 bucks for the front and the rear seats.

Machine washable, and I bought them as the dealership failed to make the connection that I was the new diesel guy at the dealership and the fact that they were selling me a truck with a light tan cloth interior LOL.

I got me a set of Shear comfort "cordura" seat covers 100% waterproof, and the inside is soft so it wont scratch up the King Ranch leather, just make sure you dont leave them on for a long time and forget to condition the leather or it will start to dry up on you.

Seat Covers..

I use Cabalas trail gear covers on mine. They fit great and are durable. There also at a good price.
