I have actually been toying with that idea. Decent leather seat covers cost $500.00. But just look decent. I wonder what taking them to get re-upholstered would cost?

Arround here I could get them done for 500.00 in leather, the embroidery would be another 60 - 80.

i just think the racing ones would be a better buy, kind of one of a kind for ~300 rather than 580$$

Good/comfortable racing seats will run you a grand or better for the pair.

Yeah those racing seats might just stick out like a sore thumb in the cab of a ranger. The material looks like it won't age to well. I think I can even see the foam collapsing in the picture.

I just bought a set of 09 buckets off ebay to replace my ripped drivers seat. I didnt have the time to have the truck down while being reupolstered. So i have a set of factory buckets if anyone needs em
