Ditto on stock interiors, at least for the carpeting stuff. No experience with seat stuff with them. Not sure what colors you're working with, but at least for the carpeting they'll send small samples for free. I had an odd color maroon and it was always tough to guess based on pictures. They hooked me up with samples and I hooked them up with cash for new carpeting and kick panels.

I received good service from ACC for my carpets also. I used SMS auto fabrics for my seat upholstery. I was very pleased with both companies and their products.

I can't help you on the seat cover question but I can add my opinion and experience for carpet. I ordered my carpet from 1A Auto, a vendor I found here on the site. They were the best price for ACC carpet. Shipping is free. (really just included in the single price they give you) Shipping was where the savings came into play.

These prices are for crew cab carpeting so your price point will be lower for a regular cab.

Today the price for the above carpet from Stock Interiors is $174.95 + $56.90 shipping to me, for a total of $231.85
Today the price for the above carpet from 1A Auto is $218.95
Most other places I looked into were higher in price due to even higher shipping rates.

As far as quality the ACC carpet that I got from 1A is a good fit and pile height / thickness.

I've been in the market for both for a while now. Seat cover prices are all over the place. Seems like half the places I have looked for OE style covers use the exact same photo, but prices go from $180 to $300.

Yes, ACC stands for Auto Custom Carpets. Here's a link to a page on their site about ACC carpet quality. I have ACC carpet in both my 65 Mustang and 75 F-250 crew cab. In case you are wondering about what mass backing is here is their page that explains it: https://www.accmats.com/articles/eve...-mass-backing/
