By Kencoul

We believe that individuality isn't just for bespoke, one-off cars. If you want your truck to have an interior that's made for you, the first step to that is by looking at the seats. And there's no easier way to customize your Dodge Ram 1500 cabin than by adding a set of new seat covers. We take a look at some of the popular choices to help you decide the Best Dodge Ram 1500 Seat Covers.

Carhartt SeatSaver for Dodge Ram 1500 ticks a lot of boxes; it's durable, has a water-repellent finish, and most importantly, it's bound to stand more abuse than your factory seats. These also come with a 3-year warranty and can be cleaned in a washer/dryer at home.

Two colors and double-/triple-stitched seams

Not only does the seat cover look great, but its duck fabric is also durable and is backed by double and triple-stitched seams. There are two colors to choose from (Carhartt Brown and Carhartt Grey; the latter is featured here), whereas a camouflage pattern is available on certain Carhartt models, too.

Depending on the model, it gets headrest and armrest covers, storage pockets, and even stylish rivets to add to the rugged look. The featured product here is only for the front row of seats, and you can order a set for the rear seats separately. To ensure there's no confusion in the fit (since these are custom-fit for a variety of models and not generic units), we'd suggest you check with the seller about compatibility with your Dodge Ram 1500 model before making the purchase.

Good looks, rugged styling, and added durability all work in the SeatSaver's favor. Unfortunately, the manufacturer hasn't mentioned if the cover is airbag compatible. Some users have also reported that the product doesn't include an armrest cover, so if that's important to you, please verify with the seller before you order. As a product, this is worth a recommendation especially if you have a hairy pet who travels with you.

  • Good looks
  • Durable
  • Easy to install and maintain

Made of leatherette, a leather-like material that protects your Dodge Ram 1500's chairs, Fia's seat cover looks great but offers much more than just an improved appearance. It comes with an easy installation system (quick-release buckles), has a no-slip fit, and even has an airbag opening. This model is for the front seats only but is made keeping in mind the 40/20/40 split. So if you're looking for a cover for front seats with a central armrest or storage compartment, this is one fine choice.

Looks like the original seat, repels water

Fia's OEM-grade leatherette maintains the looks of the original seat but also has water-repellent fabric, UV protection, and covers for the center armrest/console. The black-with-gray model you see here has a gray-finished center panel whereas the sides are black.

Fia's SL69-40 seat cover is very close to perfection. Not just because it fits well (thanks to its form-fit design) but also because it accounted for the airbag and has other features like its quick-release system. It's more comfortable as well - it includes extra padding - and to make it even more convenient, it's washable. A cover for the center armrest is also included. All that's left to do is to narrow down your choice by picking the style you want and confirming with the seller that it'll fit your truck model.

The Gorla Universal Fit Waterproof Seat Cover is a no-frills approach in making the seat resistant to water/dirt. It just slides onto the seat, which means it neither blocks the airbag nor does it get in the way if you like to use the seat's adjustment buttons. It's made of neoprene and is backed by a 100 percent money-back guarantee.

Universal fit; additional straps available

Since it's a universal slip-on fit, it might not fit as closely as custom-fit seats. But the product does come with an integrated buckled strap, and can also be specced with an optional shoulder and seat-base strap for improved/snug fit.

Installing it isn't difficult or time-consuming, and it can be machine-washed, although the manufacturer recommends hand washing it. Along with the seat cover, a complimentary seat belt cover is included as well.

It's an easy solution to spillage and can help in keeping the seat wear-free for longer. Its universal, one-size-fits-all approach has its advantages (no hindrance to the airbag, electric seat movement) and disadvantages (fit and appearance).

Compatible with Dodge Ram 1500 truck seats (model year 2013-2018 for Dodge Ram 1500), the Durafit Endura Cover is waterproof and also covers the opening center console. This seat cover doesn't block the side-impact airbags.

This cover seems to be a good choice if you value the factory-spec appearance because the design is very clean and the fit is reported by customers to be very good, too. In the case of the center console, the cover fits from the top and bottom, offering full coverage.

Durafit Enduro is made for the front seats, makes them water-proof, and covers the entire 40/20/40 bench for a seamless appearance. As a no-nonsense seat cover, we think it does the job well. If you're planning to use it on a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500, we'd recommend confirming the fit with the seller before placing an order.

The neoprene-made CarCovers Custom Fit Seat Cover is compatible with select models of the Ram 1500 truck (model years: 2017-2018). It's a six-piece set, which consists of two headrests, two backrests, and two bottoms.

Seat airbags compatible

The product is compatible with seat airbags, and due to its neoprene fabric, it's bound to repel water as well. The two-tone finish offers a simple look.

If you're after something stylish, you might need to look elsewhere. But it's said to offer a decent fit - custom fit for Express, Limited, Lon Star, Rebel, Outdoorsman, SLT, Sport, ST, SXT, and Tradesman models.

Final thoughts on the Best Seat Covers for Dodge Ram 1500

The process of choosing a set of seat covers for the Ram 1500 often ends up with you having to either go with one of the universal choices or sway towards the custom-fit models. The former might not offer a great fit while options in the latter aren't too many. The is a great choice if you're looking to extend the original seat's life. The seat cover is a simple choice that does exactly what it's supposed to do, which means it's neither too rugged nor too stylish. If you like the original seats and want to use them without a cover, the seat cover is a quick fix for scenarios when a seat cover is required (for instance, getting inside the car after the gym, etc.) includes the premium look of the OE fitments but offers more protection. Much like the Carhartt SeatSaver CarCovers Custom Fit Gorla Fia's leatherette cover Durafit seat cover , that, on the other hand, has a no-nonsense approach - simpler styling but adequate protection against spillage.

A few things that must be kept in mind while choosing the seat cover are whether there are openings for the airbags, water resistance, custom fit, ability to use with an electric seat, and longevity.
