King ranch seats?

Is it possible to fit king ranch bucket seats (like the kind that are in the newer fords) in a 69 k10.

I just want to know if anyone's done it before or if it's even possible. I think they would look sweet with a copper paint job

All you can do is get a tape measure out and find a King Ranch truck.

Re: King ranch seats?

If you dont have a tank behind your seat, I would think you could make them work. I'm almost positive they are the same size/shape as regular leather F150 seats. I have an 05 Lariat that I can measure the seats for you, if needed.

Make sure you read up on the leather care for the King Ranch seats. It's much more extensive than most people think. I wanted a King Ranch F150, but read up on it, and decided it would be a waste, since I have kids that my wife loves to feed in the truck haha.

Re: King ranch seats?

Yea my sisters all have king ranches and they're always wiping them down with the leather rub. I used to have a 06 king ranch that I should've kept but the 6 liter in it died.

I really don't want to use this truck as a daily driver but it might end up being one.

I think the interior will look nice with those king ranch bucket seats and everything else black. I don't know I really wish someone had done this before because those seats aren't cheap.

And if someone could give me the dimensions of the king ranch seats I'd appreciate it
