Seat covers for cab

We have been looking for seat covers for our Forester. It is on a Ford e-450, tall seat. We have been unsuccessful in locating a set that fits.
Has anyone had to cover theirs?

I got some for my F250 from these guys. Truck Accessories & Truck Parts | Ford, Chevy, Dodge, GMC | Stylin' Trucks
Been happy with them. Hate to be sweating on leather in Florida. 120 degrees in truck. They may have some that you like. Getting the bottom on the seat took some time, the back, armrest etc are easy. Had to take off some bottom trim to get them on right. Have held up well. Next truck I buy will get them asap. That leather is expensive to have to replace. Did some of that. Have to get in my truck at boat ramp and am sometimes nasty. I still use a towel to cover the seat because I am usually wet with saltwater etc. Look them over. Neoprene I thought was too hot. These may be the material I got. Solved the hot seat problem.Seat Covers - Seat Cover From Dash Designs

I just bought a new set of high back CoverCraft from Auto Anything, they have a large selection of styles and prices. The original ones I bought from CW were real garbage and fell apart in 2 years.

OEM seat covers

You can order seat covers made with OEM fabric from any ford dealer. I bought a set four years ago for around $200, a little pricey but the quality is excellent as fit is perfect.

I bought some from the Duluth Trading company that fit on my E450. They are maid from their "firehose" material and are really tough.

my choice of seat covers

Over the years I have had a variety of different types of seat covers on my cars and trucks.

Now... I won't put anything else on for seat covers other than sheep skin.
- they last and last
- they are cool in the heat
- they are warm in the cold
- they are extremely comfortable
- they can be cleaned
- bonus... the wife loves them too!

My F350 has high back leather seats and found that the fit was excellent.
The long drives sitting on sheep skin covers is way better than the stock leather seats.

Thank you!

Try Seat Covers Unlimited in Mesa, AZ. We have had the "Scottsdale" series on our last four vehicles including the Sunseeker on the E450 Super Duty chassis. We chose the custom fit and ordered the seat covers with map pockets, headrests (on those with a separate headrest, the arm rest covers and the seat belt pads. These add a lot of class and comfort. The fit is superb and they are long wearing. I have installed each set we have owned and have had no trouble making them fit perfectly. We put a set on our 2013 Silverado when it was new. The seat covers are showing no wear. The last time we had the truck in for service, the mechanic commented on how nice they looked and how comfortable they were.

When we bought the Sunseeker, we contacted them with pictures and they said they could make them with the highbacks. They have and excellent fit, added a lot of class to the cab, and added a lot of comfort.

Google "Seat Covers Unlimited" and take a look at the Scottsdale series. I think you will agree. These are also great people to work with on the phone. They have added the Ford E series seat covers to the list since we bought ours.

I purchased my set of sheepskin covers for my truck from:
High-Back Sheepskin Car Seat Covers made from Australian Shearling

However, this place has a USA and Canadian website (see upper right hand corner on site). I was going to order from them but they did not have my color choice at the time.

TIP: I Always cover my drivers seat if I take it in for any service.

Looks like we are going to have a busy week next week checking all of these out and making our decision. Our Forester is in the shop right now getting a new A/C and water pump. When we get it back we will double check measurements to make sure we get the correct seat covers.
Thanks to all of you! Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought you were not supposed to cover leather seats.
