Default Tear in seat cover.

I just noticed a tear about 1 1/2 inches long in one of the seams of my driver's seat. Found a OEM cover on Mid America for $879.00. Anyone know of anything any cheaper?

If the seat cover is in good shape, you can have an upholstery shop re-sew it. If you're looking at replacing the seat covers anyway, there's plenty of choices out there other than MAM. Not that their covers are bad, but give yourself more options.

Our 97 had a tear in the drivers seat when we got it. I bought a pair of 02 seat skins from the parts section at CF from someone that was changing out their interior.
