Replacement OEM Seat Covers?

Does anyone have a source for replacement seat covers for oem seats? The previous owner of my jeep smoked in it like crazy and my seats smell really stale, especially with the hard top. I'm looking to remove the current upholstery and replace it with new covers. I searched around a bit, and the discussions were all about seat covers that go over the oem uphostery. Thanks!

If the smoke smell is the only problem I would suggest treating the interior with ozone. Ozone generators get bad press because some companies have sold them as "air purifiers", but ground level ozone is an atmospheric pollutant and not healthy to breathe.
Ozone breaks down, however, so you just have to run the machine in the interior for about 20-30 minutes, then let it sit for an hour or so and there will be no active ozone left.
I've tried all the remedies for getting rid of odors and O3 is far and away the most effective. I'm pretty sure that's what professional companies (servpro) use to treat smoke-damaged homes. I promise you will not be disappointed by the results.

Your only other source is a dealer, but be warned that OEM seat fabric is breathtakingly expensive.

Yeah, like $500 per seat.

Forget that! I'll give the ozone machine a try. If that doesn't work, it would be cheaper to buy replacement seats or have these reupholstered. I guess I'm used to other vehicles (vw beetle) where it's relatively easy to get new upholstery and replace it yourself.

Go on ebay and get a set of OEM seat covers that came off of a Jeep that someone was getting leather or some other upholstery done to it.

I got all 3 factory seat covers for $200.

They are not on there all the time but check anyways and you never know what you might find.

Good luck!

Have you tried a local upholstery shop?

There is a small shop by me and he can get almost any type of fabric.
