    Wantin to fix up my mom's 86c10 a lil bit. Has anyone seen a 95+ with blue bench cloth seat? My sister's 98 had a tan vinyl bench and mom liked the contours of her that seat plus her 86 seat is starting to break down.

    I have only seen one, maybe two, 95+ blue bench seats in my life, and I scan the junk yards quite a bit. Most are either buckets or 60/40 split bench. Certainly not a very common bench seat color. Most you'll find is either neutral or tan, unfortunately. But, you could be lucky and score one at the junkyard, always worth a look. :waytogo:

    It's just not a very common interior color for the 95-up trucks. I've seen a couple. What was most common is beige, followed by gray, then maroon...with blue way, way behind in popularity.

    I find these seats with the small flip-down armrest w-a-y more comfortable than the later style.
    '88-'94. '88-only has no headrests.
    I got this one that's near perfect for $75.00. Little tired on that front driver side corner. Also have a tan one that's a candidate for recovering. Paid $40.00.
    At one time, including those ^^^, I also had 3 blue ones! Sold 2 for $100.00 each & the best one's in my '97.
    For some reason, not all that hard to find around here.

    I agree with Richard, except I find way more neutral (or gray) than beige, but maroon definitely comes in third and blue is last. I have found only 1 blue at a small junk yard around me, about 2 in another junkyard and about 5 in another, not a very common color for sure. Since my truck has the blue interior, it's a little hard to find good blue interior parts that haven't been destroyed or already taken. I sure do love the color though.

    Agreed, and I find them more durable, too. Very rare to find 88-94 seats with broken frames, while it's super common with 95-up. Also the 95-up are so bad about the foam deteriorating into dust, while older seats are still holding up fine.

    My seat is starting to deteriorate as well, every time I hop in and out, the foam is dropping tiny pieces on to my carpet, making my interior look like crap. Yellow on blue doesn’t look good.

    My 98 has a blue cloth bench seat and I am not giving it up. I think you will find them more popular in the W/T models. I scrapped a 96 W/T last year with blue bench cloth also.

    My 95 has a blue interior but it has buckets. I like it because they are not as common. Was so tired of the new cars with black and gray interiors.
