Your most cost effective solution would probably be to get your existing seats recovered and extra padding installed by an upholstery shop. It may be worth checking into.

While flipping through DuPont Registry I stumbled across a company called Kahn that mods Range Rovers
They had a pretty wild interior for the RR. A bit too fancy for the Ex I think but just shows whats possible

The chance of getting a set of good seats at a decent price from a salvage yard is remote at best. They know how expensive the dealer is and the ins. cos. will pay a lot for the salvaged seats if thry need them, so they will not let them go at what I would call a reasonable price. That is why you can find so many nice interiors going/gone to hell in the bone yards.

The Katzkin route is one I've looked into - a bit pricey but the leather and stitching is far superior to factory. I also contacted King Ranch to see if their leather could be purchased for an upholsterer to use and they responded saying they have an exclusive contract with Ford. The new King Ranch seats are a different color than the older but still look good!

The older Expy's (2000-2002) had the same 3rd row and were available in King Ranch so the 3rd row seat would fit. If you could then get the first and second row buckets and the console to match you're in the running. So far what I've seen would cost about 3500 to do a King Ranch interior - just not worth it to me yet since my leather looks new.

I found a complete Navigator interior on ebay once. 5 seats + center console. I bid on it but lost bcus it went for full price of $2k I think

Best bet is probably figuring out what you want then finding a good local upholsterer to do it. They do lots of work for boaters so you can start looking there

F250/F350 front seats are a direct bolt in!

I purchased some F250 Harley Edition seats and the fronts bolted right in and were WELL worth it.

The rears were much different. They don't bolt in AT ALL! I had to drill all new holes but it was definitely worth it. I took the opportunity to move the second row seats back 7 inches since I don't use the 3rd row. Anyone that gets in comments about how extremely comfortable the ride is because they have huge leg room and the seats are very comfy!

Are all years F250/F350 fronts direct bold on? Or, is there a specific year I should look for if I have a 2005 EX. Those seats look nice and look like what I was hoping for!

I also like the idea of pushing back the second row. For such a huge SUV the second row leg room seemed really tight.

Thanks!

Not sure about ALL years but I'm fairly certain that the fronts from 99-07 all bolt in.

If you move the 2nd row back make sure you no longer want the 3rd row because it's unlikely that the 3rd row will fit any longer

Thanks for the advice! I have actually removed the second row all together and use just the 3rd row so they have room. That is SERIOUS leg room. I looks like a limo inside.

"big money" is the reason. By the way, has anyone ever seen captains chairs used for the 3rd row seating. I actually do like having the 2nd row removed. However, the 3rd row bench is not very comfortable.

I actually am very happy that I removed the 3rd row seat. The hooks in the frame for it are perfectly spaced for a large utility box and ratchet straps to hold it down!
