    Seat cover advice

    Looking to put some seat covers on a 2010 Silverado. Anyone have any expereince regarding different fabrics or instalation? I'm intrigued by the neoprene ones but I'm concerned about static.

    By the way I'm leaning towards covers made for a specific model verses the one size fits all like you get at the auto parts stores.

    Make sure you get the king's crown to put on the dash and the dice on the rearview.

    In all seriousness, I have no experience with seat covers, but I would definitely stick to the model specific ones. It will look like the cover is natural to the vehicle and won't look tacky...



    unless you buy a hello kitty seat cover. ;)

    That's exactly why I'm wrestling with this decsion. My current seats are black and they always look dirty as every bit of dirt, dust and dog hair stands out.

    Have you looked into recovering with leather? Some of th aftermarket companies do a really nice job.

    Most Silverado guys consider the Katzkins to be the ultimate. Pricey, but nice, from what I'm heard.
