Talking New Seat, Wayyy better than Ford could have made

here are some pics of the new seat that I put in. Its gray leather, 3 piece construction. The seats are true captain's chairs with the middle jump seat/console with a storage tray under the seat that flips forward. Its from Discount Van & Truck in California who makes furniture for custom coach builders. For $875 I got leather chairs that are nicer than even the ford leather seats, lumbar, a very nice console/jump seat and all the brackets and hardware. So far its been on a road trip up to NH and it passed with flying colors, being able to slide the seats individually now is key, and I can't tell you how long i've been waiting to have a reclining seat so I can finally comfortably drive long distances.



I'm still playing around with ideas about the headrests too. I have a friend that does embroidering and i'm thinking about either the navistar diamond or T 444 E in a slanted font for the headrests, but that won't be until this summer

I like the look and they sure look comfy. Did they do the middle console also?
Is the burlwood finish on the console a hard plastic add-on or is it made of upholstery material? Looks sharp.

The console came with the seat as a unit. The burlwood is a plastic piece that I assume they get pre cast, but unless you look real hard its difficult to tell its not real wood
