I'm thinking of swapping some late model Lightning seats into my 98 F150 (non Lightning).
Does anyone know if the seats were only available as a 60/40 bench, or could I possibly find them as two buckets with a center console?

No center console available in the Lightning seats.

However, one popular modification the Lightning boys do is cut out the center console from the passenger seat and add the Expedition center console.

I'll try and find some pictures for you.

Here's the "how to:" regarding the Expy modification.

And here's a picture of how the end result looks...

Stewart,
That's exactly what I want to do, but I'm lost on how to cut out the existing center console. As far as I know its part of the 60/40 seat assembly.
So on the passenger 60% side, how do I remove the center?

Sorry, I forgot the link to the "How To:" thread.

Unless you do upholstery, it's my understanding you have to take it to an upholstery shop.
