I would imagine you can get them through a dealer for a pretty penny. I got mine off a wrecked truck on craigslist. I've come across the leather fx4 seats in junkyards even but they usually want an arm and a leg lol. I picked up both seats and console for $200. Guy didn't know what he had!

Well I have the red Fx4 seats obviously cause I have a level 2, but mine are torn and have mud caked all over them. I just want some nice looking seats like you have, But I'm afraid to go to Ford cause the price will be outrageous.

if you don't want to loud look into a thrush muffle, sound pretty good but not too loud, i prefer flomast, but they are much louder, and hell don't buy a K&N intake system build your own like i did, just use pvc pip, rubber pipe connectors, and fab your own box out of alum sheet metal or a very durabul plastic, i did that for mine since they don't make a kit for my year and i have limited funds, works like a charm, i also used 3 inch pvc to my throttle body which is oversised but works great. now min is a four banger, but my friend did the same with his 4.0, his is older too but if its the same set up as the explorer it shouldn't be too hard. I would also sugest a lund sun visor, they look great on trucks!

as for exhaust I personally like magnaflow. quiet at idle but roars to life on the throttle. i'm running a 14" muffler and had a shop cut/bend me a cat back 2 1/2" dual exit.
How much did that run you if you don't mind me asking...

Well I kinda got the good friend discount lol. The guys kind of a friend and we send a lot of business to him at my job. I paid $200. Usually full cat back runs $350 or even more at a quality shop who knows what they're doing
