Default Power seats in your Ranger??

Anyone done it? Did you just swap power seats complete with power seat tracks or did you swap the power seat tracks onto your Ranger seats??

Any tips?

I have these SportTrac seats (manual)


& these explorer power seat tracks.

you'll have to swap the tracks, the side plastic with the swtiches, and all the wiring in the seat. then it should be just 2 wires per seat to wire them in.

Are you talking about putting just the electric tracks on your ranger seats? I vote no on the tan leather in your truck if your thinking about putting those in.

I never did it, because I have to move the seats a lot to get stuff out of the back and it is faster to have manual seats.

I've got 98 Explorer power seats in my 96 Ranger. Had to swap out the rails & enlarge a couple of the mounting holes, nothing major.... unless you're going to try this in a regular cab.

I am wondering the same thing for my truck. I bought mounty seats out of a 2000. And they are the power heated limited seats. I don't mind doing my own wiring, I just need to know where to wire them up to behind the radio!

dan, the best thing you can do is get a set of 93-97 reg cab tracks, and ditch the power options. the 93-97 rails will bolt directly to the seats, and with minor trimming of the holes, will bolt to your floor. there is a guy on rps that did it.

I put power seats from a 98 exploder in my 95 extended. I used the tracks that came on the power seats, bolted right in.

yes, it will work that way for ext cabs. but for 97 and older reg cabs you cannot use the power tracks. have to swap your original tracks to the seats. 98+ ranger tracks cannot be removed from the seats like the older models.
