1985 CJ7 Seat Covers

Looking for some guidance on what seat covers are out there that are durable and a good fit for my jeep. I have the high back seats with the Nutmeg color. It looks like there's not much (any) covers out there with that color, at least I could find. Found some posts on seat covers from the past, but hoping to get more recent experience/guidance.
Appreciate the help

I purchased some covers from Lseat.com. They matched the style perfectly and are genuine leather, which is a nice upgrade, though my upholstery guy had to adjust the padding and force a shift in the upper part of the seatback, which I believe they had bending in the neck a little lower than factory.

They have rear seats, as well, but they can KMA on their template because I've been fighting with them over the fact that they don't have their template right and the cover needs more padding to fit their cover.

If you have a good upholstery person and an extra $200, may be worth it.

uw91, thanks for reply. My upholstery person is me unfortunately so looking for something relatively easy to install. Sounds like the covers from Lseat would need some work out of the box.
My jeep is red w/ the nutmeg interior. What color/s are the covers you bought??

I was trying to track down my pics of the seats (they are currently covered in electrical gear). I have the Laredo black italian purse style with the white stripes. Here are my old ones that I have to get around to selling and tossing up on the markets.

Here are the new seats. You can see the bend in the shoulder is a bit higher on their template than the actual seat. My upholstery guy hated me for this.


Best of luck tracking down some new ones. May just be a wait and find on eBay or some place.
