Stock like seats?

So my drivers seat is pretty bad off. The Jeep is a late 95 build. Ideally I'd like to get a replacement seat, or something very close so I don't have to replace the passenger seat as well. I've looked a bit but can't seem to find a matching fabric, does anyone make a seat using the OEM pattern?

From what I've found if u can't find a seat out of another yj then ur options r to get seat covers, stock style replacements but u'd have to by a set and for about $250 each or find something out of a dif vehicle @ the salvage yard. I put black leather ones out of a 92 olds bravada (same as an s10)

Where are you located at? I have a grey set that I decided not to use in decent shape with only a few tears in the drivers seat

if you can find a merkur in your local junkyard with a grey interior, these are recaro seats and the leather is very good quality. the grey interior is fairly close to the jeep grey interior and no one ever looks in merkurs for seats, for some odd reason. recaros use an easily adaptable seat mounting pattern and everyone sells mount kits for them.

i know i never looked in them because htye are ugly as crap. but, in my infinite boredom on sunday, i went through all three of them locally so i will pick up two sets of factory recaros, and sell one to cover the cost of the two sets. that will leave me two black sets of recaros for the jeep. factory bmw and factory merkur sets.

I'm actually ok with even buying new, but it factorychryslerparts has the bottom cushion unlisted. They seem to have the 91-94, but IIRC those had different inserts.
