Default suspension seats?

Hey all,
so im at a point where i want to put in a nice center console in my reg cab ranger. i have the nice 60/40 seats that are really comfortable and look really good, but i want to have 2 dedicated bucket seats, i never have 3 people in the truck at the same time, so i was thinking about buying the suspension seats from jcwhitney:

cant really beat the price for 2 seats its $250.00 and free shipping, of course i would have to fab brackets up and such. just wondering if anyone has any experiences or opinions on these seats. i dont know how comfortable they are or the quality of them. what other options should i take into consideration, im working with a reg cab so theres not much room, but luckily i have no stereo system that takes up space. any suggestions?

Why not just cut that part off your seat and make it into a bucket seat

I did that with mine and put on iggee seat covers

Explorer console is the best bet for availability if you search ebay

You also have the 2 ranger consoles

Short fx4 console



Ranger full length console (What I have)




Short console found in explorers and late model rangers
