Got a new bottom seat cover today, 3rd party, fake leather but Supposedly an upgrade in durability. My seats are cloth but whatever.
However I found the new foam I just put in like 2 months ago is already ripped. Dang it!

Get some canvas material and 3M spray adhesive and put over the "high stress" areas of the foam to try to get it to hold up better. That is what the local upholstery shop does and the foam seems to hold up

Part of the issue was poor quality materials in the eBay seat foam I bought. Im either going to try to repair this one with glue and reinforce it like you suggested or buy the one from Genos for $150 shipped and still reinforce it as you said.

New rear drive line installed. Truck had an annoying vibration at 60+ mph. U-joints seemed good by trying to shake the drive line. The U-joints on the removed line seem ok but the new driveling seems to have eliminated the problem.
If I lived in a place that had close enough drive line service I would have taken my truck there but I live in a little two horse town.

well after a fail on the first seat cover I bought (didn’t fit at all, I guess some trucks have an all plastic part around the bottom?) I got a OEM match seat cover from “The Seat Shop” made right here in the great state of Texas.

Perfect fit, high quality, easy install. It was pricy at $160 however.

Thanks for posting that. That was really a quick find to match what I have in mine. Genos does not carry the OEM for my 2009 and as soon as I typed it in The Seat Shops system, it was an exact match. I have had a hard time locating OEM. Now to swallow the $160 pill, lol. But it will look better than my current hole with new foam protruding under my seat cover.

yea it’s pretty nice for sure. I replaced the foam a while back. When I put on this new cover I used some strips cut from the middle section of the old seat cover and 3m spray glued them along the top on the side that rips (to the foam) and under the foam where it sits on the rough frame. Hopefully, that helps this foam last longer, idk. It was a free mod haha.

my 04.5 is getting new Cat batteries and a cable set from Geno's, old batteries made it though the winter but are going fast, I have only heard good things about the cable sets from Geno's, so this should be pretty straight forward
