Default Heated Seats + Seat Covers

If I were to buy seat covers for my truck, and heated seat inserts, would I be able to attach the heated seat inserts to the seat covers then place them over my original upholstery? I know proseatcovers.com makes covers with built in heaters, but they don't have the black/blue i'm looking for.

It depends on if the inserts are meant to go under just fabric or if they need to go in the foam.

it would be something like this
http://www.warmseats.com/WarmSeats-Seat-Heater_p_8.html
I'd rather this than one where its structured and just sits on the seat..
also is it worth it to buy a waterproof one? I tend to be pretty clumsy .. :$
or are there any that you would recommend?

those heaters are designed to go under the factory upholstery. it's not that hard to pull it up to place them, then you can put the slip covers over the factory covers.

Okay thanks do you recommend any good upholstery sites then? If I'm taking the old one off I may as well just get a new one right? (ps its gotta ship to canada)

what year do you have? there is a guy on here who does 98+ seats. i don't sell covers, but i recover seats. too much risk for me trying to produce and sell just covers. without having the factory patterns, etc., it's not worth my time or my money.

08 and I wouldn't mind redoing the upholstery actually the person who previously owned it put a few tiny holes on it.

the only "upholstery kits" you would probably be able to get would be a leather kit (ie katzin, road wire). they are cut/sewn in a factory using oem patterns. but you pay for them. as for a cloth cover, a shop can cut/sew them without problem. there i a guy on the different forums that sells covers for 04+. he may be able to do them.
