XL seats in my XLT?

I was pointed out by a member here that I have an XL seat in my XLT. Not that it really matters but I would be curious what kind of seat really belongs in my truck. Is there a place I could check to see what the interiors and other options were available on my truck?

I have an 95 sales brochure and it says the XLT regular cabs came with a cloth "flight" bench seat. I'm still not sure what the different names for bench seats mean that Ford uses. I've seen the same year trucks as mine with cloth bench seats that have adjustable head rests. Mine has the head rest integral with the back rest.
I never found the build sheet for my truck. I had my interior almost completely apart cleaning it. The only thing I didn't pull out was the dash.
I'm just getting back into Fords. I've been "Ford-less" for over 12 years up until June of this year when I bought my '01 CVPI.

I really wouldn't worry about having a xl seat. That tweed seat is unbeatable. they breath like a cloth seat but are tough like the vinyl

No, I'm not worried about the seat. I like the seat and it looks good. It's comfortable enough as well.

Here is my XLT seat. The other seat would be the 40 20 40 that has the same upholstery as mine.

Brad is right, there is nothing wrong with those XL seats. They are pretty tough and hold up well. I just wish they had an arm rest.

Your interior looks really nice. I agree, I wish my seat had an arm rest but it's not that important. I don't use my truck as a DD.

Thanks. Your looks nice too. One of these days mine may not be a daily driver anymore. I want to get a lower miles foxy body 5.0 thats clean and unmolested for a daily driver.
