Talking What Seats match a (97) Ford ranger

I have a 1997 Ford Ranger 2.3 manual and i have the seats with the arm rest that pulls up and opens to a seat...I want to get new seats for my truck at like a junk yard. But what other seats will fit the pattern of mine? It doesn't have to be ford but as long as they fit without making modifications cause I'm not really good with that stuff. Please help me out guys! Thanks alot!

explorer seats (up to 02 or 03) bolt in, but only if youve got an extended cab, otherwise youll have to fab some new tracks

not true. you can put explorer seats in a 97 and older reg cab by switching the tracks. you will lose any power options, but still bolt in. it was 98+ reg cabs they won't work in. OP has a 97. 98+ ext cabs are pretty much bolt in.

I do have the extended cab. How easy is it to swap out the tracks? My seats now are shot i can feel the bar going across my ass and my center console is totally fucked too...I wouldn't care if i lost the 3rd seat option in the front id rather have a deep console and more comfortable seats.

Wait a second I just looked up 2002,2003 ford explorers and on the interior the console goes all way to the dashboard. I have a stick and that won't work cause the shifter will be in the way...Does the explorer have the seats and the console stops in line with the seats and doesn't go all the way to the dashboard connecting?

the explorer full length console will work with a 5 speed. but they also offer a shorty console as well. it's basically the same length as the seats. oh, the explorer seats will pretty much bolt in for you. there may be a hole or two that needs enlarged slightly. you would also be able to keep the power seat options if you find some with it.

i have not installed one personally, but it can be done. i have seen some pics recently on here or RPS of it. even if you don't have power seats now, if you were to get some power seats from an explorer, they can be put in your truck and wired up.
