    I use Febreze, I originally bought it to get the dog smell out of my other truck and realized that it worked so well that I now spray it in my work truck once a week.

    Try some dryer sheets(Snuggles,Downy,etc.) under the seats. When it gets hot it does a good job.

    Its a work truck, isn't it? It is a tool to make money and you make money by cutting grass so yes you may get grass in it.
