What year am i looking for?
you'll have the airbag light on your dash if you do it in the 08 but bolt in, yes if you have an extended cab it should be the same unless u swap tracks.

Must have been different.

I swapped 98 expo power seats in my 96 super cab Ranger recently...
best mod I've done in a Looooooong time.

One of the bracket holes had to be drilled out about 1/8" to make it easier to bolt in & I ran a new power/fuse/ground for the seats.
I think I had to swap some of the brackets from my old seats to the expo seats, mine were angled & the expo's were straight. Took all of 10 minutes... 5 min of that was cleaning the filth off the bolts.

I modded the console a bit too, it fit perfectly but I had to make some rear mounts.
I also removed the pass side airbag switch from the ashtray location & modded it into the side of the expo console... I did more mods to the console, but I can't remember what all I've done right now.

yea, but only 2 are necessary. the power and the ground. the rest go to memory functions and other things our rangers cant do, mine had all those wires aswell.
