Default Leather Seats and Console

Here in Knoxville, we have a Pull-A-Part which I've set up email notifications when 95-01 explorers come in. I got the notification the other day that a 98 explorer sport came in. Threw my clothes on and hauled ass over there. Well to my amazement there they were, shimmering in the early morning sun. LEATHER POWERED SEATS AND CONSOLE IN MY COLOR! in total perfection. So I started wrenching away. I called my buddy up to see how fast he could get down there (to help me carry them to the checkout)...turns out he was 5 cars down the row...lol.

The best news:
Taking them to the counter (I'm thinking they are gonna be like 125 dollars). The counter clerk said "that will be 65 dollars). Their pricing for seats is like 25 dollars and the console was only 8. The Ranger gods do exist!

Well looks like the fun part is gonna start soon. Fabricating these to work in my STD cab. I don't wanna change out the tracks so I'm just gonna modify the explorer seat brackets to work. Will do a write up when I get the chance.

He has an extended cab, and from my research, his should have been almost a straight bolt in. My std cab is showing a whole different contour than a xcab.
