Scott,
He used to be in Wickenburg, but moved and set up a new shop to Cottonwood about a year ago.

Joe Reese "Complete Upholstery is his shops name. 623-939-3721. Located @ 662 E Hwy 89A (about 1/4 mile past Oxendale Chrysler/Jeep dealersip, when you are headed towards Clarkdale... North side of the hwy).

Finding upholstery guys who both do a good job, and aren't outrageous is always a challenge, but I was lucky to find Joe. I've had him do many things for me over the years including m/cycle seats, my trucks driver seat cushion (foam rebuild/replacement), the dinnette for the the RV, etc.

Rebuilding/replacing the seat cushion bolster foam in your Jeep is an inexpensive and simple job. He did same for my truck about 2 years ago while I wated in about 45 minutes, including the time needed to take the seat out of the truck. IIRC, he charged me like $50.

Mike Smith & I took convertibles up yesterday, for new tops, and the leather driver seat cushions rebuilt & recovered in mine as well.

Steve

At first I was thinking, man when am I ever going to Cottonwood again in the Jeep? Then after reading he could do it while I wait.. for around $50? That is awesome.
Plus I need both seats in my Mustang re-cushioned too. Might be time for a road trip..
I will definitely give Joe a call. Thank you Steve!
