Afternoon fellow forumites...

The new trol is on it's way and I'm knee deep in pre-purchasing items to protect the new investment.

All of my previous 4wd's have had fake lambswool seat covers but now after working my bum off can finally afford a couple of genuine lambs wool seat covers...(bless that salesman with the out of date pricing book).

I'm after proper thick lambswool seat covers for both the front seats and rear seats in my GU 4.2TDI DX Patrol (only 5 seats). Does anybody know of a mob and/or brand that I can purchase good quality covers off? I live in QLD but fly and drive between Victoria quite often...If there good, I'll even get them TNT'd over.

Thanking you in advance for your always very informative answers...

Chris.

Hi Chris

Just bought a set for my new 79 Series tailor made from Jumbuck Sheepskins at Underwood Brisbane Ph 3341 3029 talk to Glenn. Weren't cheap $750.00 fitted but came recommended.

Always used Aries before, I know there good about the same price though.

Cheers
Jeff

Cheers

Wow, that's pretty $$$. But what I expected. Are you REALLY happy with them or look at them as nearly a front airlocker?

Hi Bob,

You see Bob, I aint got much fat on the ol' clacker and I need some comfort. What I was thinkin' was to get a set of the black duck seat covers and throw them over the top of my schmicko lambsy ones when tripping or 4wding.

Would they fit ok over the top?

Chris.

I dought they would fit over the lambs wool as they are a very comfy fit on the seats. You could use the canvas on trips & lambs wool for around town. I don't have much padding on the toosh either but still find the Black Ducks quite comfy

Am killing myself laughing reading this forum, first thing I noticed on the Troopy was that the seats although in good condition leave a little to be desired in the comfort area. I do have some natural padding. As we are trying to go slowly till we confirm our addiction for this new 4WD adventure, expenses like new seating are not on the immediate agenda. As we were packing to go away for the weekend I noticed a lambswool fleece sitting on an chair in the corner of the garage. It was an unwanted gift from a daughters X mother in law for the pram. It was then given to a long deceased cat to recline on and somehow left on the chair. I simply tucked it in the headrest and had myself an instant lambswood seat liner. It did make the ride more comfortable and gave me a good laugh thinking of its origins and where it ended up.

Life is a great adventure

We put Black Duck Canvas covers on all our 4WDs (Made by Qualparp in Gnowangerup WA). This really protects the seats against wear and tear as well as grease and grime. You can put a standard sheepskin over the top (a sheepskin with elastic to hold it up) for comfort.

Prestige Sheepskins here in Perth (a few stores) do custom made and fitted lambs wool & sheepskin covers for 4bys - for my Discovery they were $425 for the front pair and $490 for the back bench seat.

Just got a set custom made for the front and 2nd row seats here in melb.

Front were sheep skin, rear were lambs wool(washable because we have 2 small kids). Rear covers also made to suit the arm rests with drink holders in the ST - not sure if the DX has arm rests.

Anyway very happy with them and cost about $600

If you are interested let me know and i will dig out the phone number of where we got them. I think they had a web site as well.
