you should still be able to fit the buckets in there, but you will need a console of some sort in the middle

When I installed my mountaineer seats, I had to 'enlarge' the passenger side seat track hole(front hole by the tranny tunnel). A couple of minutes with the Dremel and all was golden.

I almost picked up exactly the same seats for my '98, but didn't because of the wiring.

What did you do to add the electrical?

just ran a strand of 10g off the battery thru the firewall then under the carpet and used a wire tap to split it off to the other seat, and used the mounting holes for the ground. not hard at all.
