    If anyone is looking to reupholster their truck seats, give SMS Upholstery in Oregon a call. Good communication, sent samples right away and had the exact GM original Dark Green Buffalo Hide vinyl for my '77 Cheyenne. Much better than that cheesey after market velour most people use now. Price was fair for original material too. $75 per yard. I only needed about a yard and two thirds to do my seat surfaces. $125. Can't beat that!

    So I guess you'd have to ship your seats there and back? That may be the part most of us would find to be cost prohibitive :( but great review! Hopefully some guys reasonably close see this :)

    Looks like they're a material vendor only so you would order what you need and have your local shop do the labor.

    Yes, they are only the vendor for material. You have a local upholsterer do the install.

    It seems like they always have the material no matter how uncommon it was.

    You are right. They even had the correct material for my 1938 Plymouth coupe.

    You should install seats from 2007-2009 suburban. That way i can keep downtime to a minimum with the same task.

    hell yeh thats what i'd do. Keep the old interior in storage and upgrade it. That's what I'd do if I had a flat bottom girl.....You make the rockin world go round! Couldn't resist....that song is on the radio right now and fits.

    I've had thought too. The biggest issue with that is that second row. In a square it folds flat, of course. In the 07-13 full size gm suvs they don't. That's the first route I tossed around in my head, though lol

    I looked at 07 arrangement, and they looked like possible mount. But the vehicle does loose the abilty to cary 4x8 load. I think it might still be worth while

    Did you happen to take any measurements to know how it'd all fit? Is the interior of a square narrower or wider than an 07-13?
