Default Upholstery??

Where can I find OEM quality upholstery to recover just the bottom of one seat?

Im wondering the same thing. You can get these OEM from the dealer, but in Canada that seat cover is worth 680.00.

I can use an upholsterer, but am looking to see if there's somewhere that sells just the covers (cloth.. I can find aftermarket leather) that is OEM quality but already sewn up to be put on myself. The seat base will have to be repaired of course because Dodge's supplier doesn't know what cleaning up a weld means...
(honestly.. no idea why there isn't a class action lawsuit about it... I have seen it on a LOT of trucks...)

Anywhere in the US that sells the OEM seat base cover? (can't find a dark grey cloth one on ebay or on google)

I would think that any auto upholstery shop could get any material & color that came stock from the factory

I would not even think about going to a upholstery shop that didn't specialize in vehicles
The shop that i use specializes in Hot Rods & Antique vehicles

Not factory, but try Katskinz. Very pricey, not factory pricey, but custom. A front set of vinyl/leather covers for about $450.

I was told by an upholstery shop that my 2001 (and my 98 Jeep) were too old and the factory no longer supported those interior patterns. That was about six months ago. maybe you'll have better luck than I did and you'll find some. If so, post up a link!
