Default i want bucket seats

i have the original 60/40 seat on my truck but i been thinkin about puttin buckets in it but i kinda figured i only need to change the drivers side only because the passenger seat its like a bucket seat already so im wonderin if you know any seat that would fit directly with no crazy mods on the drivers side

Take driver seat out

Pull fabric off the section

Get hack saw or sawzall and cut section off

Sew fabric back over the seat.

Hack saw under 10 bucks at Lowes or hone Depot.

$10 hack saw > $50 bucket seat

I take it you lose the center console part when you do this? Guess I'll have to invest in a explorer console if so!

Cool Re: i want bucket seats

I want to say thank you for making this post. I did this project this weekend starting on last Friday, and I stitched up my drivers seat cover, and replaced it using your method. I did use a plasma cutter to cut the seat. Your idea helped me a lot! Thank you for posting this and helping us other Ranger owners get rid of that damn annoying center console that is worthless. lol
Kudos to you!

not without getting some 93-7 ext cab or 95-01 explorer seat tracks. you may have issues if your passenger seat has a weight sensor to turn on the passenger side airbag. can't remember what year that started.
