Here are a few photos that I took with my phone. I apologize for the quality. The were taken while the rig was in the garage, thus bad light, etc...

They fit okay. I might be able to get them adjusted for a better fit. The instructions could be better. Also the haven't been washed (which the instructions recommend) and will probably fit a bit better then.

Nice.

Was going to install today but weather did not cooperate.

How long did it take you? I have the same set to install......

Not too long once I had the front right and left sorted out. Maybe 20 minutes. It should go much faster next time.

They look good! It looks like a good wash would tighten up the fit some. I am a bit concerned that they went with open sides to accommodate the airbags instead of velcro flaps. It appears that there might be an opportunity for some wear on the seat at the margins. Even given that, I'm leaning toward getting a set on my next F-150.

yeah I would say they don't hold up that great. alot of companies got away from the velour type material that was likely in your 2000 model, the material you have was easy to clean and wore really well, since they put in what seems like almost a canvas type material that stains easily, looks like its out of the work truck model. mine has also started to wear really bad right there where the seat belt starts over to your lap. a word to the wise is light gray is awful at hiding dirt, that is the reason I specifically ordered tan interior on my white truck. its a little better but the tan is still pretty light colored on it. it looks more upscale than the gray I will say that. honestly if I could have gotten tan vinyl standard seats I would have gotten them and pretended they were leather.

as for seat covers I picked up a lambs wool cover from costco, they are very very comfy and only cost me $59 bucks. with wool being so absorbent it should work great when I am all sweaty in the summer.

The wife would enjoy heated leather mcuh more so than i would..... Probably what Ford wants to push us towards any way-more profitable.

I personally would never buy anything but leather seats...e cloth seats to me just don't stand the test of time well. Leather is much assist to clean as well.

Seems everyone knows that gray/grey is bad for showing wear, can anyone tell me why 90% of the trucks on the lots have grey interiors? I want tan interior! It's easier to clean, hides stains better... what doesn't tan do? I want darker than "light Adobe" or whatnot, I want real tan or brown! I think that a white or "light" color exterior calls for a brown or tan interior. sigh, I would pay upwards of $200 for a sensible color scheme, as long as it didn't include fraking Grey. (btw I had a beautiful white 2005 scab lease with tan interior once... I miss it now only for the fact it had a nice interior...)

the reason is most people want gray thats what the dealers and car companies think. I don't mind gray myself if its dark enough but most are not dark enough. We have the same problem with my wife's sienna it has a very light gray interior that looks awful once its been used. I clean carpets for a living and grays and light blues are the hardest to get looking good. if you think about it everything is darker than light gray or light blue that will stain. There are very very few tan interior trucks out there, I had to order my truck with tan interior as there was NO others out there with tan. if you want tan, you have to go with a funky exterior color usually if you want a truck off the lot.

actually black interior isn't bad, had that with my 07 mustang, normally don't like black but on that car black was common with the '60's mustangs so I went with it. I actually kinda liked it. if you compare my interior with a gray interior, I don't think anyone would say that my truck does look more upscale inside.

Just installed mine today (carharts) would do pics but would be just like zonedar's. Looks the same and looks great.

Very pleased....

Wife's Grand Cherokee has black cloth interior in it-looks good and doesn't stain but shows every hair(wifes a blonde),lint and granuale of sand(go to silver lake sand dunes a lot). So I feel its a toss up.

So how well do they "breath" with the heated/cooled seats?
