what were the nicest seats offered in a ranger from the factory? seat options

my '99 ranger xlt came with the grey tweed 60/40 seats.

i know most of you guys put explorer seat in, but i was just wondering what kind of nicer seats did ford put in the rangers from the factory? so far i have only seen one ranger that didnt have 60/40 seat stock.. it was a '96 ranger w/ the grey velour buckets with lumbar adjustments and grey center console mounted to floor.

was there any rangers '98 up that came with buckets?

anyone have pics?

2002 FX4 Off Road came with cloth black buckets with "cracked ice" inserts.
2003+ FX4 LEVEL II's came with cloth buckets. They are black with a red or blue insert. They also started putting black leather buckets as an option in FX4's 05 maybe. Can someone confirm this?
STX's also have buckets, i think 2004 plus.
There are also buckets in some short cabs, but im not sure of the specifics.

The best factory seats would be in the mid 90's power bolster and lumbar support and the front of the seat has a support that extends for the thighs. the '03 fx4 L3v3l II's were good looking to and had manual lumbar support.

Yup. I have the FANCIEST seats ever put in a ranger Power controlled lumbar and bolster WITH the front retractable leg support. VERY FANCY

It was on option ordered by the peron who bought it new in 1996.

My 98 Ranger came with two gray bucket seats and the gray center console.

The Sport Trac comes with a similar arrangement, different console. Some of the sport tracs comes with two tone leather seats and they are more comfortable. And some newer Rangers come with black cloth buckets (sometimes with colored inserts), some with leather buckets.

The black leather sport buckets were optional on various models from 2004~2009 but most commonly found in FX4's.

I have never seen them before, only the 2 tone twills and the solid grays Both of which are way better than the seats in my 93

Those seats look awesome but I'm sure are still just as uncomfortable as the standard Ranger seats. I wanted a set of those badly but ultimately went with the Sport Trac seats. I'm so glad I did as I wouldn't have it any other way.

You're nuts. Leather is more comfortable, more durable, easier to clean, smells nicer, and softer.

I saw some Black leather 60/40 seats in the junk yard the other day with red inserts. They were pretty sick looking.

win^

except my truck is to messy and dirty and its embarrassing to have a girl in my truck. since i use it for work most of the time.. and i also have a center console. which i love because i have so much random stuff just chilling in my truck and i can stuff it all in there and its "put away" if i have to clean up real quickly.

i have the black cloth buckets with a grey insert with a shorty console and i love them. much better then a 60/40 imo
