02 TJ Upper Seat Cover Replacement

I am having a lot of trouble finding a replacement upper seat cover for my 02 TL. It is trashed, but the bottom is fine. The color is a "furry" tan cloth on the very bottom, tan vinyl on the sides, and a hatch-toothed tan and red vinyl pattern on the in the center upper and lower parts. I am wondering if anyone has one or if the passenger side seat upper cover will fit. I found a whole passenger seat with the correct color, and want to either swap the whole seat back or take off the upper seat covers and change them out.
I don't want to replace the seats, because I plan on installing seat heaters (butt warmers) for the cold buffalo NY winter.
Thank you in advance for any help.

As I stated before I dont want to buy new aftermarket seats. If there is a drivers side oem seat in the same color, I have no problem spending the ridiculous proce need for them., but no aftermarket seats.
Besides, I talked to 2 different aftermarket seat manufactures, and they highly discourage seat heaters with their product. Which tells me that have an inferior product.

Have you tried an auto upholstry shop? I had one match and repair my 06' Dodge. They had books with all the manufacturers colors and patterns. Cost me about $50.

I went to an upholstery shop to get the bottoms redone on my TJ and they wanted something like $300.

No thanks. I'll shop around... lol

I went to 2 upholstery shops. The 1st quoted me 150.00 the second wanted 225.00 This is to just replace one 4" x 24" side panel of vinyl. Each told me that it would be less than 20.00 in materials. Thats with me taking off the cover and bringing it to them.
