Captain's Chairs-anyone replace?

Has anyone replaced the captains chairs in their SMB? I've got Ford 1995 originals and was just thinking it would be nice to have a headrest. My seats stop well below the back of my head. Maybe leather, lumbar support etc. Something like this:

I see lots of seats for sale on the web. Anyone done this and happy with the brand/style they picked? Vendors you have done business with and would recommend?

Thanks

Tom

Re: Captain's Chairs-anyone replace?

I am thinking about doing that this week. The stock Ford seats leave a lot to be desired. I have talked to Superior a couple times and may try them out. I will report if and when I do the deed.

Re: Captain's Chairs-anyone replace?

I just put the leather 2nd row seats out of a Honda Odyssey in mine. There is a guy in Phoenix selling them off cheap ($70 each) never used as they are removed from new vehicles to convert them to handicapped transport.

Fitted without many modifications except for a couple of 1/4 x 1 1/4 flat to fit the seat base. It even keeps all the electric controls. Color match is not too great in mine but if I have a choice between comfort and looks I'll take comfort.

Here is link to his craigslist ad but he also sells them on ebay so he will ship.
