Do these look like aftermarket seats?

I have an 83 CJ7 and ordered some CoverKing seat covers. The ones that arrived are too short. I have been working with the manufacturer and he says that they do not sell Low-Back seat covers and that I must have after market seats. I believe that my seats are original. What do you think?

My 83 had low back seats in it when I got it last year. Don't know if that's how it came from the factory. It has Trailmax II's in it now.

Your seats definitely look to be original-style. They may be dimensionally different by an inch or so. They are definitely NOT low back seats.

The picture of the driver seat looks like the aftermarket seats I put in my 1980 CJ7 back in '90 or '91. Can't remember what brand, but I got them from J.C.Whitney.

I can't tell from the pics, but if the lower sides and back sides around the lumbar area are covered in a carpet-like material, they may have come from a late 80's Wrangler Laredo. Look like the seats in my 88.
