I've been through the dealer chain, checked eBay, I've even tried the source where I got the replacements for my Dodge Pickup and apparently there are no replacements being made for the basic cloth 2005 KJ seats and cushions. Leather seat covers are available but that is something I'd rather not do, and even then, I'd still need cushions.

Junkyards are hit and miss; damage can be hidden until you get the seat home and find it is twisted or out of square from an impact. Still, the closest large salvage yard with a fair size inventory is over 200 miles from me. I don't know that I want to spend the money to have a custom seat bottom made by an auto upholster though it seems that may be the only option.

So, anyone have a source or an idea? What may I have overlooked here?

Thanks,
David

Do you have the original part numbers? I've found that with those you can find unexpected things on ebay sometimes. Factory manuals linked in my signature.

Local U-Dissambe yard always has Liberties with interiors...

Disassembly is a pia.... but starting with a passenger seat - it would be a low mileage part.

Gb -

what do you need to replace on the seat? Foam, frame, cover?

car-part.com may show you smaller yards closer that 200 mi.

take a look at your build sheet (from vin decoding) and find your trim / upholstery codes.

could narrow down your search.

btw - if just covers, there is an ad for carid.com at 15% off (not eom mind you)
