Default Seat Covers

So I have the sport seats in my 2000. The stitching is starting to open up & the embroidered letters in the center sections are starting to fray. I used to have Wet Okoles covering them, but one of my IWB holsters managed to shred the driver's seat cover.

What are the alternatives?

Seat covers from Mid America or the like run less than $70.00 and are easily installed. Otherwise you search like I did and find someone who replaced their original covers with custom covers and have them installed. I was fortunate to find someone who had removed their covers in under a year and store them properly so no deterioration occurred.

New sport seat covers in leather are pricey.

I have the black denim on mine because I hate the leather in the summer,Have had them for 15 years and they still look good,the best part is you can take them off and wash them .

My wife wound up gluing the stitching back together with some sort of glue. It seems to be holding up.
