WTT: My bucket seats for yours (IN)

As the title states, I want to find someone with the specific seats im looking for to trade for the ones I have. The first pic is the ones I have. They are black with the gray in the middle and are out of a 2006 Ranger. There are no tears or burns or anything, a really great set of seats. The second pic is the set I would like to find. I got them out of a 2002 FX4 and installed them in my old truck but a month later the truck was totaled. I really like my 06 seats but really prefere to have a set like I had. I would like to meet someone that isnt to far away and swap as this is the only set I have si I cant really take them out and ship LOL. And for those thinking it, yes I could get the 60/40 and cut them down but I really dont want to, Im picky LOL.


Seats I have,

Both. I really like the new seats but not liking the higher back on them and I think the old set would look better. The newer ones are a lot more firm than the older ones and I guess thats just not for me LOL.

I guess everyone os different. I'd love to swap my 01 60/40 seats for the newer buckets. I like the square look and the shape, much more comfortable IMO.

Guess that's how it goes, those that have one want another and vice versa.

Damn, sucks you're in IN... Just got me a 2002 FX4 and I'm not too keen on the rock looking pattern... Would definitely be interested in a trade if you were closer...

Thanks for the offerbut the 01 up seats I have found are a bit different cause of teh different design of seatbelts.

2001 up had the explosive restraint canister on it and the conector on the beltitself wont buckle into the seat assembly. I had a 2000 andinstalled 2001 seats and found out the hard way these differences.

LOL, I got the only set like that they had but they had two other sets of older buckets but I know that Glissons on first Ave. has a yellow 06 with the same seats in it. They were asking $200 for the set. Driver side had a rotor sitting in it so it might have some rust stain though.
