Leather interior info?

I know, I know, this is prolly the 100th thread on putting leather in a ranger but here it goes: I bought my Ranger with all the bells and whistles, which, obviously, does not include leather! There are only 3 things I want Ford to do with their Rangers: Crew cabs, V8 motors, and leather as an option. I love leather seats and I want some leather in my Ranger as well. Does anyone know of a company that sells pre-upholstered seats or some good quality seat covers?
My biggest dream would be putting a pair of King Ranch seats in my Ranger. But I figure ill prolly pay a few hundred bucks for some used ones and have fitment issues. Anyone with prior experience putting F-150 seats in a Ranger?

I have leather in my 1999 Mazda B4000 Mountaineer FX4. Yes that is what it is.

Seriously though, just get a set of seats and find someone who sells leather similar to that of the King Ranch and reupholster it to say King Ranger

An Explorer seat swap would probably be the easiest, since most came with leather anyway.

I just measured my grandpas 2007 F-150 and honestly, itd be close. His leather seats are only 2 inches wider, the seat part is one inch taller, and the seat back is one inch taller also. I am definitly considering it! I dont think my grandpa would be happy if I stole his nice black leather seats out of his lariat, but I will have to look around and see if I can find a pair for cheap

Measuring tapes dont lie lol. But there wouldnt be a lot of room left in between them. Yes, they would be almost touching but hey, its leather!

I was thinking the 60/40 split ones. The buckets might fit length wise but I can't see them fitting height wise.

And to liftedranger, it should fit hight wise but it will definitly look a little odd just because they are a huge seat in a small truck. And im just saying this from looking at it; iv never tried test fitting one before
