I am looking into getting some seat covers for the truck and I am just curious if anyone has ever tried these? I just saw these at Farm and Fleet. I am guessing like most universal fit covers they won't be great but maybe they could work?

I've been looking for some too. Seems like every parts store or Walmart I go to there are a TON of seat covers marked down to less than $5 and that's for a pair sometimes but I never see them in the 60/40 option. Still keeping my fingers crossed I find some for a deal.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
Never seen them for 60_40. You have to get a bench seat cover and put it over both sides.

Just a thought but have you tried looking at ebay for Ranger seat 60/40 covers? There is a couple of them that I have been looking at but can't decide on which one that I want.

Go to web site, Seat Covers Unlimited. They make top quality covers. Their Scottsdale fabric is super, and very strong. You won't ware thru it. And, they make covers for the 60-40 seats, custom fit.
Pricey, but you get what you pay for.

I’ve seen the custom fit ones that you can buy and the ones on eBay, but most are 100$ or more. I’m just looking for the cheapest option that fits best if anyone has found something decent. I have also looked at Cabelas, they have some drawstring style ones that are universal but you can pull tighter. Unfortunately camo isn’t really my style lol.

The only way to get a decent fit with "cheap" seat covers... is to give them a "custom" installation.

I have a pair of the Cabela's draw string type in the camper special... I didn't custom install them and the fit is... well they fit. Don't be fooled by the draw strings... they only do so much. I will also add that they faded pretty bad in short order. Mine are gray and black.

I've had two sets from them in the past, both the Scottsdale fabric. One on a Ford F-350 and a set on a Ford based class c motor home. Will be getting a set for our current Ford based class c motor home.
They are made to fit your vehicles seat, and are not just a "generic" fit. Look damn near factory.
You do get what you pay for. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and spend to get quality. Buy $39.95 seat covers, and they will look like $39.95 covers. Better off using towels.
