How are your seats holding up?

Just wondering on how your stock seats are holding up in the durability department. It seems that every time i get in and out of my Jeep, I am either sitting or sliding on the left side of the seat bottom. So does anyone have excess wear showing on their drivers or passenger seats?

Mine are holding up very well, other than a small hole that I poked in the seat back. I am still unsure of how that hole got there....

Pretty much the same here. The seat covers are looking pretty worn, but I can't wait to see brand new seats in a 4-5 year old vehicle when I pull them off.

80K here and my seats look good. A little dirty, but I'll grab some Mopar total clean and clean them up a bit. I have the YES fabric by the way

I have over 20k on my stock vinyl seats and they are holding up rather nicely, even with my fat *** dragging over the bolster when I'm entering and exiting the vehicle, lol. The foam itself in the side bolster has been compressed a little more than I'd like but the vinyl looks good as new.

I think it probably has alot to do with the way you get in and out of the vehicle. If your even just a little bit lifted and you don't have any steps/bars on the side your naturally going to wear down the left side of your seat more getting in and ecspecially getting out. I only have 700 miles on mine and I'm already concious about the way I get out of the jeep. I'm going to be putting on a set of covers soon.

I too am concious about my seats. They have been covered since day 1, and I make every attempt to not 'sit' or slide across the seat bolster (my passengers however, are not so inclined). Granted I weigh 150lbs dripping wet, I'm not going to 'crush' my seats. But I make an effort to keep the seats in good shape.

Our 'company' vehicles' seats all lean to the left and the edge of the cushions/bolsters are crushed/ripped/destroyed.
