New seat covers by Terry... he does amazing work.

I just replaced the covers on the seats in 2001 Ranger. The old ones were stained and starting to rip.
After looking around I found Terry thanks to some other Ranger owners on here. He didn't have exactly what I wanted on his Ebay store so I emailed him. Terry worked with me for about two weeks on figuring out a design and fabrics. Once we had a final design it took him about a week and a half to make them and ship them to me.

I could not be happier. :)

Terry did an amazing job making these. They had everything that the original covers had and fit just like the originals.

Those look great. I am so happy with his work. It was worth every dime.

I went with the gray because I have a white truck, I thought sticking to black and gray would be the best bet and when he sent me some pics of his work I loved the gray with the dash marks.

That's a nice upgrade. I wondered if he was going to start making some for those style seats. I might have to look into it

What did that run ya if you don't mind me asking?

From what I gathered working with him on the design, these were the first that he did like this.
He had made covers for these seats before, but not in this style. I didn't like the "smiley face" look of the original style so I asked if he could do the bar across the back instead. He said "Yes" and said that it would be kind of like the FX4 seats.
I asked about pockets as a regular cab has almost no storage space. He said it could be done.

Total price after the added cost for the arm rest kit and shipping was $310.
I had a hard time forking up $300 for a 10 year old truck, but after getting them put in I don't mind at all. It makes the truck feel like new. :)

I talked to him for a few days about some leather seats. His prices are good and he is definitly very willing to help anyone with designs and prices. His price was $650 for full leather, which isnt bad at all considering leather is a bout a $1000 option on most vehicles

$300's not bad. Might have to get a hold of him and check out some materials in person. Both of yours look great but I love that square shoulder look of the newer ones. The search is on lol

^^ true, but leather is easier to clean and harder to stain. And smells like leather lol

Good news is that the cloth that he uses is actual automotive upholstery cloth. He told me he had Ford and Mazda fabric. I assume that the gray with the dashes in the middle of my seats is Mazda as I have never seen it in a Ford before.
In the pictures he sent me he had black, several gray shades, blue, red.... no telling what else he has.

The guy that bought my Ranger was very impressed with them, and he restores old cars from the 40&50's to pristine condition.
