NICE! Learn something NEW everyday......didn't realize such a seat was available in the 93-97's.

If that was closer, I'd jump on it!

Wonder if the Supercabs had a split-back with full bottom?
That would be PREMO!

Yes it is a very nice seat, but I had a concern about the hump on the floor board,seems you would have to raise it some, unless the seat frame had longer legs.I would nail it in a instant if I had the $$$. Very nice of Keegan to help me out.

my dad's '93 mazda B2300 had that seat, he hated it, lol. said it was not anywhere near as comfortable as the older bench seats, not enough foam in the back or seat bottom. so no big loss there, although that one is in fantastic codition...

Those bench seats from 93-97 basically were in base model trucks. And a lot of fleet trucks. They are terrible for comfort. If you find one in decent shape any reputable upholstery shop can rebuild it and make it comfortable for you.

If I decide to go that route, I planned on new foam and quality black vinyl seat covers.

Default Re: First Gen. Bench Seat In 5th Gen.Truck ?

Sorry for the old thread, but still wanting to go to a split back bench seat.Has anyone installed a seat from another truck or car in a Ranger? Just wondering what would be involved.Maybe a seat from a early Toyota or Ram.Any help appreciated.
