Default Driver seat durability

Is there anything that can be done to revent the driver seat from wear and tear on the side where you get in and out?

My 13 is already showing wear from getting in and out on the cloth seats. I am 6'5" so getting in is pretty level for me so I did not think this would happen. I have seen numerous pictures of Rams with this issue.

I do wish I got leather now and thinking of doing some aftermarket leather but price is really high and it would not help the break down in the cushion in that area.

Also have thought about lowering the truck with a 2/4 drop but I know it will stiffin up the ride some and really do not want that either. Could do the 2" rear drop only but do not think that will drop the seat very much.

I traded my 1999 Dakota on the 13 Ram and it was not near as high even with the 31 X 10.50 tires but the interior and seats looked brand new with 128000 miles.

Anyway to lower the seats with manual controls?

Any other suggestions that I have not thought of?

Thanks,

Greg
