To buy or not to buy?

Thoughts on Vinyl vs cloth? Should I scoop these up? They only have the fronts and I would still need the rears but is that a good price?

Those seats aren't meant for a crew cab. The seat belt is not built into the seat in the crews. Not to mention I don't think you'll be able to find a crew cab rear seat in vinyl either.

I like cloth, but if you like the Simulated Leather look then it's your call, your truck.

Now if they were real leather… might go that route.

Cloth in the Northeast is warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, CA gets hot so the cloth seats would be cooler too.

Gotcha. I wasn't sure what the differences between the regular cab and the crew's were. I like the ease of vinyl to clean and not worry about getting dirty. But yeah they are cheap looking.

King ranch seats would be sweet though!

I know what you mean about the cleaning. I thought those cloth seats that were in my F150 were hard as hell to keep clean.
