What did you want to happen? You did not ask a question - you made a statement, one that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, either.

I thought i had put a question mark in the title. Looking now i notice i didnt. If i had it still wouldnt make too much sense. I thought maybe you guys could infer i was asking, i guess not.
I'll take the time now to ask.

What are the best aftermarket seats for a 93 f150? Is there a secret seat that everyone on here knows about?

Not that I have seen. They are too spendy. Most of us are running these trucks because they are cheap to buy and cheap to maintain. Generally speaking, most guys who upgrade their seats use something from a newer Ford truck that they found on CL.

I saw a post yesterday on here with pics. Member found a set of Lincoln buckets, heated cooled and leather for $170 I believe. Looked very nice, especially for not much coin. Search the forum for seat swapping to get an idea of what kind of brackets you will need to find or fab. Armed with that info, you can put just about any seat or combination of seats and console in your truck for less than $200. Hope that helps.

I'd go the junkyard route....there are plenty of seats out there-maybe a nice set from an Eddie Bauer truck. Those are plush and you'll have a nice console, too. Even if they're beat, you can always have them re-upholstered. Check local shops-you might be surprised at how cheap upholstery work is (compared to new aftermarket seats). I *think* Bronco seats of this era will also fit F-series, but not positive. Maybe someone here can confirm this? Also, check Craigslist-after you filter out all the jerks & scammers, its actually a great way of finding stuff like this. I use SearchTempest so I can check with 150 miles of my area. Anyway, good luck with your search-that's half the fun!
