What To Look for in a seat cover for Ram 1500
When shopping for a seat cover for your Ram 1500, it’s not enough to just go out and look at a couple of examples and assume that you have done to ensure you get the right one.
A fair bit of research is required, and recommendations if you can get them.
Below we have some tips on what to look out for when shopping for a seat cover for your Ram 1500.
The material that the seat cover is made of is extremely important because this is expected to be fit with your lifestyle.
If, for example, you buy a luxury leather seat cover but you intend on spending a lot of your time transporting the dogs around, then this will probably end in the seat covers being trashed quicker than you’d like.
Typically, seat covers come in the following material choices:
Seat covers made of this can be durable, and great for those looking for something more rugged. However, they tend t be harder to wipe clean.
Usually stylishly designed yet easy to wipe spills from. Seat covers made from this can provide a happy medium between a luxury look and maintainability.
The quality will vary between different brands, so be sure to check feedback comments regarding this.
It’s important to understand what it will take to successfully install the seat cover. Seat covers can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours to install.
This depends on a few factors:
Are the seat covers custom-fit or universal?
Custom-fit seat covers are designed to fit the specific configuration of seats perfectly and provide complete coverage. They, therefore, tend to require more thought and effort when installing.
Universal seat covers are designed to fit a variety of vehicles in this range, and as such usually end up being easier to fit.
How easy the instructions are to follow?
The quality of the instruction documentation can be the difference between a relatively easy installation and a nightmare session that takes half a day and a few extra helpful friends.
Thankfully most manufacturers provide adequate written instructions.
There are however some manufacturers that go the extra yard and provide video instructions also. In our reviews, we have provided video instructions where available.
Failing that, a browse online for instruction videos for the particular seat cover is recommended.
How hands-on are you with these things?
It is prudent to ensure that you are either comfortable fitting a seat cover yourself or will be able to get help with installing it.
No matter how much research you do, it is always recommended to look at customer feedback and hunt for any comments that might give a clue to the real-life experience someone has had with the seat cover.
If someone had given feedback after using the product for a few months, then this will be very useful compared to someone who has post feedback having barely opened the packaging.
Recommendations from other customers or people you know are the single most important pieces of information you can receive to determine your confidence levels.
Good manufacturers will provide some form of after-sales guarantee to give you peace of mind. While not necessarily a deal-breaker, it is always nice to have a safety net.
