There was a company in Colorado that made better seats but they are now closed. The comment I saw regarding the OEM seats was that they used thinner vinyl and the way it was attached to the foam didn’t allow it to move and it cracked. I have been looking for a set of seats for my gator and have held off until I can find something better. It seems like there would be a market for a quality seat. None of the replacement seats are cheap and and I think most people would pay more for a seat that would last.
