depends on your years and cab of your truck. 93+ ext cabs are pretty much direct bolt in. some minor trimming, but will go in. 93-97 reg cabs, you swap your old seat tracks to the ex seats (will lose power options by doing this). 98+ reg cabs, well nothing is a bolt in for them.

Short answer, yes.


And you can take the time to run the wiring to get the power options to work.

05 ext cab ranger seats into a 96 ext cab? should be pretty straight forward. the biggest thing you will have to do is remount your 96 seat belts to the new seats. the rest should bolt right in.

pretty much bolt in. might have to enlarge one hole per seat, and of course wire them if they are power.
