If you are looking for aftermarket seats I noticed a few companies out on the net. I haven't used any to recommend. I am looking to change my seats and I am finding used seats are about the price of what I can buy brand new through some companies with mounting hardware etc. discountvantruck.com is the first one that popped up on a web search. I may go that route...

Conversion van seats! I had some in my 2002 Suburban and loved them. Had them in the front and middle row. There about $500 each for leather.

I'm looking at put them in my EX as we speak. Here's the ones I like Chevy/Ford Van/RV Brown/Tan Leather Bucket Seats - eBay (item 140521874797 end time Apr-08-11 11:52:17 PDT)

I have always found stock Excursion and Super Duty seats to be horribly uncomfortable. I sold mine and swapped in a pair of tan, power leather seats from a 2001 Chevy Silverado and they are without a doubt the most comfortable seats I've ever ridden in. I've made long trips across the country, to Alaska and back, etc and I rarely get saddle sore. I had to make some mounts and figure out the wiring. Both sides are power. They also sit taller than the Ford seats and being 6 feet tall this has been helpful.

I also have a pair of tan leather bucket seats I had custom made years ago that I never used for anything. Heat and power. PM if interested.

The seats in my Navigator are not very comfortable and I am considering swapping them to a set of seats from a Mark VIII which are much better. I might have to give up the cooled seat feature that I really like. My '94 Mark VIII also has a power seat back adjustment that I like a lot more than the manual ratchet system in the Navigator.

Too bad after all that modification, the radio and CB don't fit flush? That denter console gauge - decibel meter? Seat's look comfy.

The seats on my 2003 EB excursion are in fairly good shape even the driver seat where they always wear out. They are pretty comfortable and I love the power adjustments although the back angle is manual. One thing I dislike is the headrest- when on long highway trips I either need a neck pillow or rolled up tshirt.

When I eventually need to replace or repair I wonder if there is any option that will provide a better headrest, perhaps one that moves.

I have to agree with you on this one. In the passed 8 years in have owned a 1997,a 1999,a 2000,a 2001,and a 2002 Suburban. The GM factory seat are more comfortable then the ford Expeditions and Excursion seats. They are also a little longer, which is nice for longer leg people.

Just "food for thought" and a possibility. I used Flexsteel RV seats in my 04 SuperDuty. The truck came with a bench and after removing the bench seat from the framework, I bolted the RV seats to the frame and bolted everything back into the stock mounts. For a console I used a Tuffy Security steel stereo console and mounted my CB in the console rather then a stereo. I ordered heated seats with outboard arms deleted in a very nice grey leather. They are not electrical controlled for slide, but manual. Electrical is an option though. They do have power lumbar control which I have also. Must say, they are the most comfortable seats I've ever had. Thinking seriously of doing the same thing to my new (to me) Excursion. See Flexsteel - America's Seating Specialist: RV/Marine Seating for an example of mine.

Those RV seats do look pretty plush but they look flat at the angle of the photo. I prefer lots of bolstering on the sides of the lower back in particular. My truck is extremely sporty so it is helpful to have seats that hug a little.

I love having armrests on the seats and having the seat belts built in as well. I removed the center console and built me own in front of the dash. I also wanted the adjustable and removable headrests because I had originally planned to use a 5 point retractable harness like I used to have in my last off road Jeep Scrambler. I've found that when I'm rock crawling most of the time in this big truck I prefer to unbuckle so I can maneuver to see better.
