In reference to the cloth Captain Chair seats that come in the Ford F-150 pickup truck, can Ford use a more durable cloth material that has an elastic/ stretchy quality? Also, can the stitching of the cloth be done better so that the stitching doesn't loosen or pop loose.
Some Ford pickup truck owners have pets (dogs) that ride in the cab of the truck. Dogs will either jump from the back seat onto a Captain Chair seat or if it is a big dog (80 lbs. +), use its hind legs to push off the back seat, squeeze between the Captain Chair seats by way of the center console, and occupy itself in a Captain Chair seat. In either case, the dog digs its nails into the cloth material of the seats thus putting stress on the cloth material and stitching. Plus, the weight of the dog impacting the seat places stress on the cloth material and stitching. Remember, a dog has (4) paws on the Captain Chair seat applying pressure downward to stabilize itself while the truck is moving or braking. This pressure can cause a premature wearing down of the cloth material leading to fraying and the yellow foam cushioning underneath popping out.
Dogs love pickup trucks and make great riding buddies
