Selling my factory CJ7 seat covers - Recommendations?

Hi all,


I've swapped out my seat covers for some leather ones from lseat.com (kinda regret it, but have to live with it now) and I'm wondering what the best route to get rid of these things will be.


I'm in WA state and these things are dang expensive to ship and no idea what a good asking price is. Should I just post them on the classifieds here and the local CL and hope and pray? I know the Classifieds here are for all Jeeps and not sure if that is the best route.



I have a pair of Laredo Italian Purse front seat covers with one bottom damaged and the second slightly coming apart.
Pair of black denim fronts, on seat, with one bottom damaged.

1 fold n tumble black denim seat cover in awesome condition.


Should I strip the other covers and sell them without the seats? What's the best practice for handling extra parts of this size?

I would certainly be interested in the black seats/covers on the bottom. PM me if you would like to talk

I had thought about getting the Lseat covers for mine. Seemed like the reviews I saw were good. Curious why you have regrets. Do they not fit? Quality issues?

The fronts weren't bad, the leather is really nice but they miss on the cushion and shoulder placement. If you have an upholstery shop they can likely put in the padding to fix, but if you want a perfect fit you won't get it out of the box with them. I think the vinyl's ability to shrink/heat has better qualities than leather.


The back seat is quite loose. Lots of space around the seat. The covers are a close match, but again, need love/cushion to fill the seat out completely. Kind of annoying. They replied to me and said that I have the wrong cover, to which I replied (thanks to y'all on here) that the cover is correct for that seat and you can use 3 different covers for the same seat frame/cushion. (crickets from them)

Price on the Laredo covers, and I assume they are takeoff OEM ? Could you forward some closer pics of the damage, it looks to be only on the bottom covers correct?

SoCal Jeep here. Very timely inquiry. Just went out to my Man Cave thinking what I should do with my original 83 blue seat skins after I had it reupholstered. Not trying to hijack the thread but would like advice as the OP requested.
