Will 08 seats fit in an 06? Please Help!

I'm not fond of people joining forums just to ask a question, so I apologize up front. My girlfriend is an amazing person and has a 2006 Jeep Commander with the cloth seats that stain easily. I found a great set of leather seats from a 2008 Jeep Commander with 3rd row. She recently paid her Commander off and has plans to keep it for a while. I'd really like to surprise her and get leather seats to install for her to enjoy it more.

Will the 2008 seats fit in her 2006 Commander?

Much thanks and appreciation from all.

Yes, they will fit. There were virtually no changes to the Commander during its 4 years of production. Only minor things. The seats are the same.

That is great to hear! It's a large chunk of money to spend just to find out bad news. It seems like most listings are 06-07 and then 08-10. From my searching, it seems like maybe the seats themselves are contoured differently or just that the 06-07 had 3rd row standard and that wasn't the case from 08 on?

The leather seats may be contoured differently from the cloth. I don't really know. I think the 3rd row became optional in '09.

That's something you should research for us! I have an 06 and want to put oem leather in mine, but not sure if leather from an 08-10 will fit!

Well I paid for them and will be anxiously awaiting them to ship and arrive. My girlfriend is coming back down to CO from SD in 2 weeks so it would be nice to have them before then. If not, she moves down here in July. I'll post pics of the swap and and issues I find. It looks like the seats are the same contour as well so I'll get a good comparison side-by-side when I pull the seats out.

I highly recommend Caltrend's "I can not believe it's not leather" car seat covers, they cover cloth seats perfectly and everyone who has been in my commander thinks it's the real deal.

Just priced all 3 rows out of curiousity...

ICBL is $825 and the real leather is around $1,500. I paid way less than $825 for the full 3 rows of factory leather seats shipped and I'll have the stock cloth seats left to sell.

Does the 09 passenger seat have a height adjustment? The 06 did not get one.

The drivers electric seats in all years have height adjustment. Don't know about the manual seats.
