Looking at some 2001 ranger seats, will these be an improvement?

I'm looking for some seats for my 95 ranger, which still has the factory 60/40 seats. They are still in good shape, but the driver side is breaking down a little bit.

These 2001 ranger seats popped up on craigslist tonight, and I'm going to take a look at them tomorrow. They appear to be in good shape, the seller stated that there was one small spot on the bottom that needed to be tacked down.
He's asking $125 obo.

Are these much of an improvement over my 95 seats? I was wanting to get some explorer seats, but it's almost impossible to find them around here with the leather still in decent shape.

I put those exact seats into my truck. Huge improvement...but i started with the base model 60/40 bench (no arm rest), Is that the style you currently have?

FYI Make sure those seats match what your current tracks. If you have a std cab, make sure those seats came from a std cab (they'll have long seat tracks to bolt to the floor).

Oh, and 125 is a pretty good deal.

You can change the tracks on them if they don't bolt up. Just check before you get rid of your old seats.

Those came stock on my '01 and I like them. They are nothing special, comfortable, and they get the job done.

I thought I had some pictures of my seats, but can't find any. They do have the little center armrest/console. It doesn't latch, hasn't since I bought the truck. My truck is an extended cab, and these are out of a standard cab.
