Slip on seat cover
« on: February 04, 2015, 09:00:13 PM »

I'm looking for a slip on seat cover for my 2001 3500hd with the bench seat.    I would like something durable and affordable.    Maybe saddle blanket type.  What do you recommend?

Sadly durable and affordable dont really go hand in hand here, but the old saddle blanket/ indian blanket types will somewhat affordable.

The last one that I saw that looked worth a crap was around 70-100 bucks.

They have some covers on eBay...but one option might be checking out a salvage yard? Might just locate a nice complete seat for less than the cost of a cover?

I've bought numerous cheap saddle blanket covers and none of them last and are ill fitting right out of the box.  I wised up this year and bought a vinyl cover from NW seat covers.  It was $136 shipped with a holiday discount code and is incredible.  It fits great, holds up to harsh daily use and looks like an oem seat again.

I have a Juki LU 563 walking foot upholstery sewing machine and just need to learn how to make my own covers.

I have spent considerable time researching a direction to take with my seat, I think I even found a Detroit area counterpart to the Fast and Loud Dragonlady at a local upholstery shop (she's NOT getting my ***monkey business).  Nothing I find in re-purposed sets or aftermarket seats tickles my fancy, especially when a $1000 seat ends up being nearly $1500 with add ons and delivery.  In my mind nothing beats the razor thin seat back of the OEM '95+ bench seat for legroom that's also got the molded back for driver, passenger, and even the jump seat for the long haul comfort.  I also like the bench so my girls (wife & dog) can sit next to me.  The saddle blanket cover over the OEM seat didn't fare much better than the original cloth.  So, for my purposes I'm down to a reputable local car seat upholstery shop that offer's new foam for the seat and recovering in cloth or vinyl for $300-$400.  My parts truck takeout is wrapped in poly in my dump bed for delivery tomorrow, I should have feedback in a couple of weeks.
