Someone sent me an email inquiring about my leather Explorer seats and I accidently deleted it without responding. So whomever sent it to me, sorry about not getting back to you personally. I figured I'd post the answer to your questions here which might be of interest to others since I've had other people ask me the same thing.
One question asked was why some of the pictures of my Ranger's interior show gray-colored Ex seats, and other pictures show tan-colored Ex seats?
The answer is that I initially found a pair of gray leather power seats in great shape at a great price and I couldn't pass them up. For comfort purposes alone I knew they would be worth having (I was right about that), and I figured that if I came across a pair of similar tan Ex seats later then I could grab them and drop them in since I would have already done the wiring and other prep work necessary to properly mount them.
So guess what happened? Yep, a year or so later I did indeed come across another Explorer wreck (at the same junkyard) with a tan interior and with seats virtually indentical to the gray seats I had installed. I also picked up an overhead console and a full-length floor console, as well as an auto-dim/auto-lamp mirror assembly. I swapped all of the tan Explorer interior parts into my Ranger, and so that's why the seats (and everything else) are now tan.
Another question was, how did the gray-and-tan interior look when I had it set up that way in my Ranger? Well, I thought it looked pretty good, and if I had never found a pair of tan seats I still would be quite happy with gray seats in my factory-tan interior. As noted, the comfort-factor alone makes it worth it, IMO.
Also, back when I had the gray seats installed, I also painted my half-length factory floor console gray (used matching SEM vinyl/plastic paint) in order to better incorporate the gray color into the interior scheme. I think a pair of gray floor mats would make it match even better.
Hope this clears things up for some people. :-wink
