Just took about 30 minutes and installed my new driver's seat cushion from Geno's and I wish I had spent the money 50k miles ago. It is SUCH a drastic improvement. No more smashing my tailbone on the rear crossbar with every bump!

When I did my seat, I found a tiny piece of  torn fabric... I didn't want to make it any worse... so I took it to our local upholstery shop that has been in business many years ...he was impressed with the quality.

What did you get? The plain one that needs covered? I don't see a complete seat cushion. Part number?

Yes, that's the one. My truck must have had aftermarket seat covers most of its life, because the fabric isn't faded. It does have a big rip right in the middle, but I run some high-dollar (Covercraft?), heavy duty seat covers, too, so the tear hasn't grown. Otherwise I would have purchased the new fabric, also. Taking the old fabric off was the hard part because of the big clips that snap onto the steel part of the seat. A couple of them were very stubborn. I reused my existing hog rings with the help of two pairs of pliers, they run left to right holding down the center of the seat fabric. I have an 01 so didn't remove the entire seat, have no idea why they say to do that in the instructions; supposedly 94-97 guys have to do so.

 

Cost for just the foam is rather high at $125, but having experienced the change I'd very grudgingly pay twice that. Any higher and I'd just cobble something together under the original foam!

I know that feeling just like paying $750 for HID's I would do it twice for any other vehicle I would own. :whistle:

Done my foam and skin a little more than a year ago. Well worth the investment, Foam was a little stiff at first but broke in after awhile, I remember just having under 300. In it for the foam and skin, I went with a company called autochampoftexas, The skin was an exact oem replacement
