There's nothing quite like a brand-new ride. Perhaps it's the purr of the engine, the quick response of the gas pedal, the new car smell or the feel of the leather seat covers.
Truck and SUV engines can last for a very long time. Unfortunately, your seat skins will not. They'll begin to deteriorate due to normal wear and tear. No amount of seat cleaner or conditioner will bring your leather seats back to life – and duct tape will just detract from their already-embarrassing condition.
Did you know that now in 2022 instead of just living with a torn seat cover, you can replace your OEM seat cover with a factory seat cover replacement?

Not All OEM Replacement Seat Covers Are The Same
It will depend on what kind of factory replacement seat covers you're looking for. Here are the typical solutions we've seen in the past:
One size fits all. This type of replacement seat cover is usually poor in quality and fit. This will not replace or solve anything. You may not see the problem, but your back will definitely feel it.(Video) Why Can't I Find My Vehicle?? | The Seat Shop
This is an option if you are on a budget, but you are not always going to get the exact replacement seat cover you need. In many cases, what you find may be in worse condition than what you already have.
If color-match, quality material, texture, AC/Heat options and a loose fit are not a problem for you, you'll find many places to choose from. Just remember, cheap options can become expensive very quickly.
Non-OEM Conversion Kit
Non-OEM conversion kits exist, but they are non-refundable and you'll have to remove all of your OEM quality leather and replace it with the kit pieces so it all matches.
Most direct OEM seat covers cost 3-5x more than high-quality matching replacement factory seat covers. The main difference is the dealer brand name it comes with.
The Seat Shop provides accurate OEM fit and finishes for many replacement seat cover products – even if they have been discontinued.

4 KEY COMPONENTS TO FACTORY MATCH
OEM Seat Cover Replacement
At The Seat Shop, we have replacement seat covers for hundreds of trucks and SUVs from 1995 and up. Manufactured in our Plano, Texas factory, seat cover replacement begins with quality materials and precise craftsmanship. Our products are made to match your original factory seat covers, which were manufactured according to OEM seat cover standards. This helps guarantee that the replacement seat covers will match your original interior.
Benefits of our Factory Replacement Seat Covers:
Premium Automotive Material: Our leather, cloth and vinyl materials are sourced from many of the same original automotive suppliers. This ensures you get an accurate match on the color and texture of your originalseat cover. If a product is in high demand and the material is no longer in production, we will explore different tanneries to reproduce the matching OEM material.
OEM Fitment: Each replacement seat cover is digitally measured and cut with machine precision, ensuring an exact look and fit every time. We also ensure that the correct anchoring methods are used so that OEM standards are kept. This includes matching clips that will hold your new seat cover to your OEM seat frame.
Foam Backing: We use 1/2" machine-sewn foam backing behind the leather seating surface and 1/4" flame-laminated foam backing on the vinyl side skirting. This creates reinforced structure and support for your seat cover that will last for years to come.
Automotive Grade Thread: It's all in the details. The thread color and appropriate gauge are needed to give you the original look as well as the additional security and longevity.
AC/Heat Compatible: Our covers are made with the proper materials to ensure your replacement seat cover is compatible with the seat heating and cooling functions you currently enjoy in your vehicle.
Airbag Deployment Certification: Looks are important, but safety is key in factory seat cover replacement. Before we release any airbag-equipped product, it undergoes thorough testing at a qualified facility to ensure the airbag will deploy as an OEM seat cover should – down to the millisecond.
If your problems go beyond the cosmetic, we have replacement Durofoam cushions to replace your current OEM seat cushion. Need accessories to get the job done? We can help you there, too.
