Anyone else have fragile leather seats?
 
So the day after I brought my Raptor home I saw that the drivers seat was getting damaged in two places. It' the lower part of the seat under my right leg. I wasn't wearing any clothes that would have done it and I've been abusing my 08 Tundra for 50k with no damage to the seats. No holes yet but it looks like some kind of abrasive rubbed on the leather and it seems to be getting worse.

Just wondering if anyone else has had problems. Worse case is I beat it up till it rips then have my interior guy fix it. Maybe even do some custom stuff. I just hope this isn't a sign of the quality of the product.

Mine is fine. The only thing that happens to mine is by the left leg it always starts to look crinkled. I think thats from me getting in and out of my truck since I always have to pass over it. I've been trying to go over it without touching it so it hasn't gotten any worse.

no problems with mine yet
i am noticing that i have developed a gangsta lean towards console while driving and after driving my F250 a couple days and switching back to the raptor I think the pad is already starting a memory of my lean haha
now it sort of makes me lean lol
dammit

Looks like it's just me and I'll have to be more careful when I get out of the truck.

I keep hearing Ford Raptor has cheap leather seating. Went to check out my friends somewhat confirmed it but is it really that bad? Makes me think about grabbing some Cloth Buckets for 2012 if available instead of opting for the leather... i really dig the leather in the King Ranch though...

You can go aftermarket. These look hella nice
