Yes you need to swap the seat buckles over. You need to put the old buckles on the new seats. Nice i looked forever for new ranger 60/40 seats but only found one set near me and they wanted $800 for them.

Those are what I was looking for. I love those seats. But I couldn't find them. And I got my explorer seats both power and lumbar for $30. But they needed to be redone. So I dropped them off at interior shop to get redone. Still waiting on them but that cost me $440 to get redone but they are getting done in black vinyl with red stitching. And my explorer full console with new radio bezel $25.

You need to swap your female buckles from your old seats and put them onto the new seats. This usually requires a torx socket and sometimes requires partial stripping of the upholstery to gain access to the bolt.
