Default Need Drivers Seat

I have been trying to find a drivers seat for my 2001 xlt and all that comes up in the searches are covers.

does anyone know where i can get a seat that is not blown out like the one i have in my truck. i have a bad back and this seat will kill me over time.

Search your local junkyards. Also create a signature telling us the year make and model of your truck Is it extended cab or single cab?

added a picture and signature.

i was going to call the junkyards tomorrow, but, i think i want a new seat.
depends on the price and how the used ones feel.
the guy i bought the truck from was fairly big and at 116k the seat is just whipped.

I have a 2001.
what years can i take a seat from?
i have read two different date ranges
01-04 & 98-03
are either correct?

Another thing to consider would be to find an upholstery shop and have them refoam and cover the existing seat. This would allow you to be able to have the foam cut to thickness in the areas that you need more support due to the bad back. May cost a little more, but a good fitting seat would be worth it.

yep! i do it all the time. the 98+ ranger seats have two thin metal bars that run up and down the seat frame. really easy to break.
