Default Seat Cushions

I was cruising the net looking for stuff and came across a M35 box seat cushion cover. The description said it also fit a M715 seat. I think it was Antelope Valley where I saw it. Anybody know if they really are the same? My stock M715 seats are so far back in the horse barn that I can't even see them anymore. I really don't want to dig them out just yet to verify this. Thanks.

Yep 715 seat covers are the same as the drivers box seat in the M35.

Backs are not the same, at least not on my suspension seat in the deuce vs the factory M715 seats.

Like I wrote, I can't eyeball both of mine together right now. But, looking at Pistolnut's 715 seats and then going home to look at my M35 seat, the bottoms and backs look real close to being the same. I will get them together one of these days and see for sure and post about it.

The backs and bottoms are the same as a M715 for the m35 box seat only. The springer is a totaly different seat.

Thanks for clarifying that, I don't have a box seat to compare to.

Yep, the springer was an upgrade in the 80's to help keep the deuce from shorting you spine on big bumps. The only problem is that taller or bigger drivers hate the springer because it moves you closer to the steering wheel and gives you a cramped feel while driving the truck.
