Seat covers vs seat swap

Ok guys so I am basically trying to weigh out the pros and cons here on getting some high quality seat covers or just going with an all out seat swap. I guess first off is it possible? Would 8-10' seats fit? I know on previous years it has been done, obviously I would have to do the rear seats as well. Its just we all spent alot on these trucks, and I want the interior to last, and look the way I want it to. That being said Im willing to spend a little more for a quality long term solution.

I am XLT, steel grey cloth interior, just trying to 1. go black and 2. protect the seats. Now im sure im going to get the "you spent XXX on this truck why didnt you just get exactly what you wanted" Well, this truck actually had 1k miles on it when I bought it, got a KILLER deal, way too good to pass up. I plan on keeping her so I want to do things the right way. Trying to avoid the Walmart seat cover look here obviously.

Anyway what are my options?

I asked the same question and got the same Walmart/Autozone replies. Those covers just look so dern cheap... I'd recommend Wet Oakle since they fit well, but are pricey and fade even with their UV resistant additive. Other than that, I have no clue.

Hopefully someone with a nice set of seat covers with pictures can chime in here...

Look into a Katzkin leather interior. Car Leather Upholstery | Custom Auto Leather Interiors by Katzkin

I had one put into my truck complete with seat heaters, and I couldn't be happier with the service and quality of the product. It looks awesome and it's fully customizable to exactly what you want. Price wise it's not a whole lot more than high end seat covers, and certainly way less than factory leather.
