Can anyone recommend the best fitting seat covers for a 1997 F250 Heavy Duty XLT with cloth seats (40-20-40)? I was looking at Coverking, but the color I need (gray) isn't available in the fabric I need. I noticed a couple posts on these forums that suggest just having the seats recovered as a better option. Thanks for any advice.
I have those seats and when I was working out of my truck I looked for some covers and never found anything that was made to fit.. So, I ended up using a couple of beach towels.. I got some large white towels and dyed them to match..

The covers I got from saddleman didn't work out for me ... Santa ordered the gray velour (to match the interior as much as possible). I think they looked okay and fit alright, but would have lasted all of two days. The material and seams would have ripped apart with the most minimal of wear. I had to ask to send them back -- they did take them, but charged a 25% restocking fee.
Not sure what I'll do next. It doesn't appear to be easy to find quality, fitting covers for a truck as old as 1997.
Definitely check out GT covers. I got the 40-20-40 front cover and the bench seat back cover. Definately worth the money. they fit so well people can't even tell they are seat covers . If you'd like ill include a picture, as the pictures there don't do them any justice.
P.S. I apologize my pictures aren't the greatest either, Dropped my phone in concrete yesterday. Anyway my seats used to be a grayish cloth, so I ordered some cloth seat covers but then gt covers called me and said they had someone else order leather then not pay them. (they make everything custom when you order it) so they were willing to give me the leather and a $100 discount if I took it instead of cloth. In the long run I like the leather better because its much easier to clean
