Default replacing 1 jump seat with bucket

Some racing buckets are about 17 to 18 inch max width, so I am considering putting one in, and pulling out the passenger jump seat I will keep it facing in as the jump seats do, I'm hoping with this I can fit 3 people in my ranger comfortable...

I have seen a lot of people talk about adding bench seats but I really don't think you can do that unless you have 2 front buckets w no center console, and only the middle seat would be usable, the pre runners do something similar quite often.

I'll do some more measuring.but I think this may work

The prerunners don't try and cram a bucket seat in sideways, the put a seat in the middle of the cab and the person in the 3rd seat is rarely comfortable unless they're a child. Their feet and legs go where the center console usually is, so legroom is tight. 3 seaters are full size trucks 98% of the time.

If you're going to do this, try to get a UTV seat.

I know that about the pre runners... but I'd like to keep my 60 40 for now up front... I was thinking the jegs high performance seats... they are pretty narrow and widest parts base by far and cheap so even if I can't work it in I'll only be out like 50 bucks
