Want to upgrade my seats to Leather??

I want to swap my seats out for the stock black leather. Don't know the best most cost effective way to do that. Been looking on tousley ford and find the parts and buying the parts seems high, like around 1,200 bucks. Any suggestions????

try junk yards

check out http://www.car-part.com/

here in ontario it seems like you should be able to swap to leather for under $900 and most leather i have seen comes with heated seats. so wire up a swtich and you can do both!

The dealer offered to do it for me for 900 so you should be able to find a place for that much or less.

Can try those guys, not sure if they will be any more cost effective though.

It says 1995 starting price for full interior so hopefully just the seats are cheaper. Sent them a email and will find out.

I'm almost certain that's just the seat covers, but it might also include door skins also.

Hey Cool. I didn't even think about this. That car-part website is pretty sweet. Looks like I can get the two front seats for 200 each (no power), didn't check the back seat. I've got heated seats already so I wonder if its the same switch.

Thats what I selected. Is my car ready for power seats? I just assumed it didn't have the power setup so look for non-power seats. Funny thing, when I looked for power leather seats they are look a lot cheaper than un-powered leather seats, $125 vs $200

i would think its just 2 wires to hook up the power seat with an add a fuse (or might even be a stock fuse location for it)

No, only the driver's seat is powered, the passenger seats are all still manual even with leather.
