Default Explorer Power Seat Install Std??

So I got a pair of seats and find out that it's not just a simple swap. Anyone do a std cab custom seat rack installation?

That would be the best solution but not that simple. The expo seats being powered have a completely different bracket.

Sounds like you want to keep em power. If you don't find another way, I did this to make ext cab seats to fit. I wanna say they are basically the same besides the power.

Just trying to give you some ideas man.

Yes, I do want to keep the power. Nice work you did with your seat installation. I'm thinking that it will be something like that, still working on ideas.
