NOS/replica OEM Vinyl seat?

I have a 88 with the grey vinyl seats that say Jeep on them. My driver's seat is starting to show its age after 173k miles and 25 years. The stitching in the seat bottom is starting to separate and there is a rip in the left seat bottom bolster. My passenger seat looks almost new with only one spot on it and the back seat looks almost new with only one spot on it

I checked on Quadratec but did not see any seats that had the same pattern on them. I would like all three seats in my Jeep to match, but don't want to replace two perfectly good seats. I also like the factory original interior. So is there anyway to get the factory seat or even just the vinyl? Before anyone suggests it I hate seat covers. I have been looking on CL but all of the Wranglers are either no seats or no driver's seat, and there are no Wranglers in local junk yards. It also does not help that 95% of YJ's are beat like a red headed step child and left top down rain or shine to fill up with water and rust out/destroy the interior.

Not my Jeep but same seats.

heres a link to the upholstery they might have yours.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

I'd love to find the original driver's seat. My passenger is still original, just like the picture, but in black. Unfortunately, the PO replaced the driver's seat and threw away the original. I went to a local upholsterer, but he told me he would not be able to find that pattern.

Thanks for the link, do you have any idea on how to read it?

I am assuming the ones I want are:

For the bottom: http://www.factorychryslerparts.com/.../5AH90JS1.html

Then they only have the right side for the back, where I would need the left?

Maybe I will try my outrageously priced dealer ship.

That is almost exactly what I want, the only problem is those seats do not say jeep on them. I am guessing due to copy right crap.
