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?
10k... but i put a set of cheap covers on them the day i got it...
the covers look worn out already.... i am guessing the seat looks somewhat new
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.
2003 Patriot Blue Wrangler SE - RCX 2.5" Kit on 31x10.5 Firestone M/Ts and stock the rest of the way.
2007 Flame Red Wrangler Unlimited X - Skyjacker 4" Kit on 35x12.5 Cooper Discovery STT(My Build Details)
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.
