Default Aftermarket leather seat covers

What's good? What's crap?
Just a thought bubble right now. Don't want to spend a fortune. Ebay has hundreds of listings for leather/faux leather covers just wondering if anyone has any experience with them. My brother put some high end custom's in his 2010 Big Horn. They look factory. He paid around $600 I believe. I don't want to spend that much right now but damn his look good.

I'm ordering a set of CoverKing from a local shop here... $699+tax and installation. Apparently they are coming from California... Going to take a month or so because I guess they make them when they're ordered.
I looked at the set that the shop has in their work truck. VERY nice. I can't wait.

Sounds like the stuff my bro got. Made to order. He did the install, said it wasn't too difficult.

Yea, I thought about doing it myself... But for the hour's labour, I'd rather it be done right and if they screw up, they fix it.

I'm looking to add leather seat covers and heated seats to my truck. I should be placing my order as soon as I get my tax return.

There are a few brands to choose from. Most are in the $450 to $600 range.

I picked Clazzio.

http://www.clazzio.com/


Be aware that on ebay the pricing typically is for only the front and you will have to order the rear seats separately for the quad cabs. So double the price for quad cabs.

Some brands of the top off my head:

http://www.katzkin.com/
http://www.coverking.com/

Yeah I'm not ready to drop 4/5/600 bucks just yet. I saw some of the cheapo sets(front & rear) on ebay anywhere from 50-200 bucks. Some screamed junk & a few actually looked interesting. They don't say whether they include the front jump seat/console. Probably best to wait and get the good stuff I guess.

I am not looking at leather as I want to ensure that my soft, warm, cozy, radiant heated seats work properly.

I am going with covers by Proseat, a Canadian company that also does business in the U.S.A.

https://www.proseatcovers.com/

Myself I am leaning towards the Outlaw Saddle, a design I have always liked, but with a slight modification, the headrest to be done in one material. That way my wife can stitch a logo on the head rests.

Let us know how you do with these. Does this include the jumper/console part of the front seat cover?

I'd like to install some seat covers also but I don't want a set that has more wrinkles than my grandmother. Some I've seen look like they were put on by a drunk in the dark. Those leathercraft sure look nice though.
