Blasted Seats!

I'm at the end of my tether. I've got a 2000 Ranger XLT with an extended cab (4.0L V6, 4x4 if it matters) and I need a new driver's seat. I've been looking for a replacement seat for months now and I'm coming up empty. Every time I find a 98+ ranger in a salvage yard, the seats were the first thing to go (or are in terrible shape). Same results with Craigslist and all I ever find on Ebay are seats that look beat all to hell or are from a standard cab (which I believe are incompatible with the extended cab). I've tried some aftermarket sites but all I ever find are racing seats, but that could just as easily by my search methods. I'm not fully clear on the year ranges or other vehicle models that would be compatible (Mazda B3000? Explorer? SportTrac?)

So, I thought I'd come here for help. I'm handy enough that I can remove my old seats and install the new ones myself, but my tool kit isn't much more than a ratchet set, so modifications will have to be very light. I'm trying to keep the "custom" look down as I intend to sell it at some point down the road. If I can match the interior color (I guess it's the standard grey) all I need is the driver's seat, but I wouldn't mind paying a bit extra for both seats if that's what it takes to keep the pair matched. The console/armrest is a necessity, though. A simple pair of buckets won't get the job done for me.

Any advice?

I'm in Dallas, actually. I'm waiting to hear back from a salvage yard that just got a Ranger in. If they end up another dead end, I might be interested in trying to work something out. I'll shoot you a PM.

By the way, my compliments to the photographer for getting the cat's butt in the frame.
