S-10, yes.
There are a number of seats that will fit. I measured a nice set of Mercedes leather seats for a friend of mine. He doesn't like leather so he went with the S-10.
If you have the time to measure you have a world of choices.
Chances are, more folks here will let you know what they've already found to fit.

The rear seat out of a mid-80s Bronco II are a nice fit if you can find one, and they have some really nice patterns. Downside is, there's no adjuster.

I have a 1996 S10 split bench in my M--fits nicely and adjusts. You need the slides from two sets of seats, then change out the odd shaped ones (it will be obvious when you see them).

Matthew, I don't know the width of a C-cab, but the S10 seat is about 50 inches maximum width. Width between the mounts is approximately 44 inches.
