Alternative Seat swap question??????

I am having a real problem finding an affordable drivers seat for my 00' SD. They are either cheap but far away (or the wrong color), close and worth more than gold (or the wrong color), or just as rotton as mine, and the right color. I was wondering if it was possible to swap seat back and base from something else ie; Explorer, Expediton, Navigator, F150, and reuse my existing power seat frame? I am looking for an affordable option to the getting hard to find F250/350, Excursion etc seats. My truck is a work truck, so I don't need the fanciest replacements but I'm not trying to treat her like a P*S. My back is killing me. Please help. I believe this info will help everyone else here also.

Why don't you take them to a leather upholsterer? You'll probably land up being cheaper than getting/shipping new ones or other ones.

This is what I did in my E99 XL truck. Bucket seats, 2008 center console and black carpet to replace the factory vinyl. Turned out great...

The 04+ f150 seats are pretty comfortable and are a fairly easy swap. I believe you have to drill holes. I think the newer explorer and expedition seats are the same.

Also IIRC, the 99-04 f150 seats are the same as ours. Not 100% sure on it though.
