Seats

Wanting to replace my 2004 Rubicon seats. And keep the recline and factory flip n fold. Also the rear flip n fold. I thought about just getting leather replacement covers but was quoted 500.00 +.

Are you wanting new seats because they don't look good anymore or are there legitimate issues? If it's just for looks, consider the Bestop seat covers. I grabbed those and many thought that I had new seats. Plus they water proof which has been helpful during the past couple of rainy days.

Yea,the material is getting worn. Would like to get a better seat but keep the factory function. The frames are all just fine. But to get them recovered is more then complete new aftermarket seats. Unless the aftermarket seats are not as good.

Assuming you're asking about the Bestop covers ... yes, they do.

OP ... no clue on what having them recovered would cost but my covers were ~$225 for both front and back seats. And, by and large, they're easy to clean (just don't get sun screen on them then let it sit in the sun all day - it ain't coming off ...)

Seat covers kind of all suck and just look cheezy IMO. I would suggest Corbeau Baja XRS. Beyond that, maybe go to a local upholstery place and have them totally rebuilt to the style of your liking.
