Default Re: Seats that fit in the Ranger

Troy: many thanks to you and your knowledge. Another question: I want to swap my 40/40 buckets out of my '08 ext. cab Ranger for a set of 60/40 seats. I'm looking at a set on eBay from an '04 reg cab. But, from what I've read on this thread is that these seats won't fit directly into my ext. cab ... is that correct? Is it because of the track or the seat belt harness? Thanks for any help back.

Have a 60/40 cloth bench out of a 2010 Ranger ext cab. Want to swap out vinyl 60/40 seat in my 2008 Ranger reg cab. Understand the track length is different and am looking at swapping out the tracks. Does the entire lower seat frame have to be swapped out or is there a more simple way to remove the tracks from the seats frame short of dymamite. Any photos or instructions will be appreciated. Am also installing carpet at the same time....gotta figure a way around the seat track issue. Thanks...

04+ seats are the same seat with different tracks for the cabs. so both of you guys will have to swap around the tracks. it requires a complete tear down of the seats to the metal frames (bottom only, back will have to come off). you wouldn't have to unhook the cover from the foam, but separate them from the frame. it's doable. i did it on a set of 04 seats i sold to someone.

this is the only pic i have of the ones i did tore down...

I found a 60/40 with a console thats in very good shape for 100.00 so I think it's worth it to take the stuff off the old seats.

So, if I found a 60/40 seat from an '06+ ext. cab truck .... would those seats be a direct swap to my 40/40 bucket seat truck ('08 ext. cab) without any big mods (except maybe seat belts)?

Thanks to all. After seeing the photos and what to expect I tackled the replacement passenger seat and had the track/frame off in about 45 minutes. Next I will remove the passenger seat from my truck, break it down and move the std cab track to the replacement seat. It is certainly doable although the "60" seat (driver seat) will be a bit more involved due to the size but I am on my way to a warmer butt during the cold versus the vinyl seat. Thanks again.

Now how does the weight sensor on the passenger seat play into this discussion?, can the one from my Ranger be adapted/fitted to the new bench seats or do they (what years) have the same sensor?

not sure if they can be adapted. sole was going to do something with his as he put explorer seats in. not sure if he ever did or not. i guess as long as it is plugged in, it won't throw the code. could just roll it up and leave it under the seat/carpet. just wouldn't be any way to turn it off if it's on, or visa-versa.

I have an 01 Edge, I am looking at a pair of bucket seats from an 05 Explorer 4 door. Is this a doable swap? Or will I end up with seats that wont fit?

2002 edge 4x4 4.0

95-01 explorer seats, and up to 03-04 explorer sport/sport trac seats.

others from the list can be made to work using 95-7 ext cab ranger tracks or 95-01 explorer tracks.

So these would be a direct swap with no modding needed?
