It would really help us to know the make, model,and year of your truck, along with what type of seat you have. Straight bench, 50-50, 60-40, whatever. Also, any pictures would help. You seem to have a specific seat cover in mind, have you seen one somewhere like what you want? By seat cover, do you mean one that goes over the top of what's the original, or a whole new seat cover?

That link gets to the home page. Is this SEAT COVER what you're talking about?

That is a great looking seat cover, but for $40, I'm afraid there will be limited choices. Making a custom seat cover to your specifications would be almost as expensive as re-doing the seat.

I do this for a living, and for me, I would rather re-do the seat to your specs than make a slip cover. No matter how good the seat cover is, it will still look like a seat cover.

They're not cheap, but look like the nicest custom seat covers I've seen and have good reviews on other forums. Been meaning to order a set for my Dodge...
