Seats, Light Bars, and Exhaust

Just got my truck's seats covered in high quality marine vinyl for Christmas. Ridiculously soft and sturdy too. I am greatly pleased! Second, I had ordered a light bar from Underdog-Performance, but that deal fell through b/c the owner's truck that he usually uses to get correct measurements was involved in a fender bender. So he sent me two light tabs for free. And thirdly, I took off my Delta 40 Series Muffler and replaced it with a Flowmaster 10 Series. Now to the pics, 56K Beware...

Ok video will come asap! (prob after Christmas weekend). However thanks for the comments guys!

He had to fix my driver seat. The left side of the seat at the bottom (where your butt sits), was like totally flat. So the upholster went back and put the strongest foam he could find in that area and it sits so much better!

Exhaust bends like the one after the muffler should never be that steep or sharp... I wouldn't be surprised if you're losing sound and power from that one spot.

good to hear they did you right. the quality looks good as well. that's standard for any seat repair we make. fix the foam and add a little extra protection on the bottom as well.

I haven't even thought of that. I should look into seeing if I can get that changed possibly.

Those sharp bends like that are very inefficient. I'd definitely try to get that fixed. I'm looking forward to hearing it though! Been looking for a nice sounding muffler for awhile and haven't heard the 10 series yet.

Well since you are the second person that has said that, I better get that looked at asap, lol. That will be an expensive fix though I'm thinking. Yeah man regardless of if I get the exhaust fixed or whatever happens, I will get a sound clip up as quickly as possible.

I appreciate it man! However to answer your question, they are not covers. That is actual high quality vinyl that replaced the cotton tweed that was on the seats before. The upholstery guy that I used stripped off all of the old cray tweed. Then he rebuilt the foam on the driver seat. After that he wrapped the stock seats with the black and dove grey two tone vinyl. Expensive...yes. Worth it...most definitely!

^thanks man. But I know what you're saying about about the expo seats. I just didn't want to deal with the center console. However if I could have found some heated explorer seats and that were power......hmmm I am pretty sure I would have try to get those in there lol.

^I actually just wacked the center console from my 60/40s off to install an expo center console. Now I have that fabric that needs to be sown back down. Thats why this looks pretty interesting.

^I gotcha man. Yeah I would def recommend doing what I did. The quality is intense. And when he was putting on the vinyl, the middle console deal was broken all to pieces including the latch. So we went and got some 1/2" MFD board, sanded it, and placed it as the new lid, and attached the latch someway with some hardcore glue. Then preceded to wrap it with the vinyl. My center console has never been this sturdy. Even since the first day that I got the truck.

Sounds pretty good! I wonder how much different it would be on a 3.0 though.

Thanks alot for the comments fellas! Yeah the seats are the stuff imo.

About the exhaust, I went to muffler shop that put it on and he said it was not restrictive. So I don't know. But I can understand where yall are coming from with such a big angle right after the muffler.
