    The last time I price them for 2 high-back buckets, it's was around 200 bucks [​IMG] That's a little much for seat covers for me. Hell, I could probably get some new seats at the junkyard for under 50 bucks! Also, the ones I've seen that get direct sunlight (ie top-off) faded fairly quick....

    One of the guys I used to work with had them in his Yukon and he loved them. If I remember right he said they were $100 for the fronts and $75 for the rear.

    Stay away from these! I had a set for my '73 that didn't even last through the first summer. This was in a vehicle that I didn't even drive that much. I've had much better results with the cheapie seatcovers that you get from Pep Boys or Autozone. The best way to spend your money is to get some quality all weather seats like those designed for Jeeps. I've got a set of Corbeau Baja SS seats on order right now (apprx $300/pair).

    300 bones on seat covers??????? Sorry to be an ass, but isn't that a little much???? I agree with the 10 dollar cheapies, to keep the sun off the (original?) fabric. It woud take you 15 years to get to 300 bucks, replacing em every year.

    I've had them in my '83 Blazer for about six months now. They are very comfortable and the only thing wrong with them is a small rip in the side I caused by sliding out one day with a pen in my back pocket. I paid $114.00 for the pair and the owner even installed them for me. Unlike some of the other guys, I've had lots better luck with them.

    I've got a set of these on my front seats. I got them as a gift about 4 years ago and they still look good. I even have the top off a lot during the summer. The price is a little high. You can't get away with the $100 pair because they won't fit our big seats. At least my 86 has big seats. The cost of mine were $200 and they made them custom. These were the only covers that would cover the ENTIRE seat. You can't see any part of the old seat. The best thing about them is that they are water proof. You can spill a whole cup of water on them and the water just stays there. I'm happy with mine.

    300 is for seats, not just covers. I'd never spend that much, though the Wet Okole weren't much less that that. Here's what I'm getting: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.corbeau.com/brochure/baja-ss.html>http://www.corbeau.com/brochure/baja-ss.html</A>

    Cheap seat covers? Been there, done it and want to get away from it.
    Sorry, money is money and cheap is cheap. I've had enough of the cheap seat covers. I just put one on and took my truck to Holy Cross and guess what? It didn't make it.
    One off road trip and it was done. I will never buy cheap again. If I only drove the truck on the road then maybe but if your out bouncing off rocks, they won't last. My seats aren't worth expensive seat covers so I like Jasons Idea, new seats for me. just my $.02

    Hey big spender!! [​IMG] $3 bucks... man that's too rich for my blood! he he he

    Actually... I had a set of sheep skin ones from Kragens... paid $75 for the two... they were great. Had them for a year until I took them off and gave them to a friend whose truck got broke into and they slashed his seats.... anyhow.... for the cost, they were very nice! [​IMG]

    I removed my quote so gay, vegetarian, minority, eco-nazis who love Jesus, nuke spotted owls, vote Gore and smoke medical marijuana won't be offend.
