    I’m looking for either a pattern (preferably) or a site that has seat covers for purchase.

    My front seats are usually the yay or nay factor. My center console opens, which I’d like to still utilize with the seat covers on. Also, the driver side has power controls and lumbar support. Included is the only pictures I have of the front seats, but I figured it would spark at least someone’s idea maker.

    Ps I don’t really care to use the paperwork compartment on the very top, just the inside. Enjoy my dog.
    Thanks

    Welcome! Not much help with the seat covers here but you may want to consider a new windshield also. :eek:

    If you remove the fabric on yours couldn't you just take a seam ripper to it and then use the fabric as a pattern?

    Then he might as well get the factory covers restitched because at that point, he's already 1/2 way there.

    I definitely agree with your "'Seat covers. ewww." comment. Shortly after I got the used 2000 C3500 a few years ago, I bought a set on eBay, mainly because the driver side seat edge is even more torn up than the one in the photo above, it's even missing some foam. The set that I got was similar to this:

    s-l300.jpg

    Although I liked having the pockets on the front edge, the covers fit very loosely, and under the blazing Southern California Desert Sun, it didn't take long for them to begin to disintegrate and start coming away in pieces. I finally pulled them off and trashed them in disgust, a total waste of $45. The manufacturer even has the audacity to label the seat covers as "Saddle Blanket". I don't know of any horse that wouldn't be uncomfortable and embarrassed to be wearing a blanket made of THAT stuff! Didn't there used to actually be quality saddle blanket-style seat covers back in the day? I can remember friends having way nicer covers on their truck seats when I lived in Alaska back in the Seventies & early Eighties. How come I can't find anything like that THESE days? It's a shame that what's out there now is either cheap Chinese crap, or hideously expensive.

    UPDATE:

    I just Googled "Saddle Blanket Seat Covers", and apparently this company bought out the original Utah-based Saddle Blanket Seat Cover company:

    They say that their products are made in the USA, and they get good reviews. At this point, though, I think I'd rather seek out someone locally with skills like sewlow to redo my existing seat properly.

    Here's the page where Seatcovers Unlimited talks about how they bought out the original Saddle Blanket Seat Cover company:
