Seats coming apart

I have the factory seats in my X yet, they're just the base seats yet, not the more expensive ones with the YES fabric. Anyways, I've noticed that the "netting" like material over the center section of the bottom seat cushion is starting to fray. Is this happening to anyone else? Maybe my ass is just to fat for it?

Do you wear pants or shorts that have velcro rear pockets?

Sounds like a silly question but I noticed mine strted to fray a little bit and I realized it was from the velcro on the rear pockets.

...so, loose weight, buy a mouse trap, and throw away your velcro shorts...This thread is becoming funny... Sorry, I know my input isnt helping.

I do wonder though...if none of the above are the problem...Would "warranty" possibly come into play. Maybe take it to dealership and see what they say. I mean...if they cant prove that you actually caused it, or if there is an obvious defect in the stitching, then...maybe? Although, good freakin luck with that.

you know I didn't even think of that. All I've worn all summer since I got the jeep is cargo shorts that have velcro on the rear pockets. Thats probably what it is. I'll take it to the dealer though and see if they will do anything about it. I'll see what I can do about posting some pics after work.
