Default Re: Seats that fit in the Ranger

I just finished this swap. Here's some helpful information...

My truck ... 2000 Standard ( Short Cab ) Manual Trans 4 cylinder

I had some shit cloth buckets, i think the truck originally my truck had a 60/40 setup but i don't know for sure.

I found an Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition 1998 with power leather bucket seats at my local you pull it.

I took the seats out (4 10mm bolts on each seat , bolted right into the floor of the explorer)

I brought them home and took out the passenger seat from my ranger. Flipped em both over and compared the bottom of the seats and rail set ups. I couldnt figure any way to move forward with out some different seat tracks. I was not about to start popping rivets.

I looked at this post and found out i needed seat tracks off a 93-93 ranger short cab with 60/40 seats. So that's what I found a 97 std cab ranger, these donor tracks fit the explorer seats perfectly.

As for those tracks fitting my truck, the out side 2 fit perfectly, the inside 2 seemed to be 1/4 in short. I drilled out the tracks to extend them back towards the bed of the truck. Everything bolted right in. if you want pics of this i can take some just ask.

Note: with these seat tracks you lose all the power options on the seats... after doing it, it seems obvious but I wondered about that before i did the swap.

I had to remount the seat belt buckles but that wasn't to hard. I needed a star key set of drivers. I mounted them in to the seat where the seat back connects to the seat bottom.

CAUTION:

If you are tall I would be very careful choosing new seats because you will lose 2-3 inches of leg room. Even though the seat is all the way back it feels much further forward. I think it's mostly because the leather seat backs are actually thinker.

Good luck with your swap guys... FYI here's a list of what I paid

- $40 Leather Power Driver Seat
- $25 Leather Manual Pass Seat
- $10 Seat track off 97
- $10 Seat track off 97

Sorry if this has been answered before. I did do a search and got confusing results for a simple question.
Will seats(looks like 6/40 buckets) from a 2001 regular cab Ranger fit in a 1995 regular cab that has a full bench in it now with no trouble or alteration?
Thanks for your patience.

Searched the thread and couldn't find a definitive answer. I found a pair of 2002 Explorer manual Bucket seats, and I would be swapping them into my 2004 Extended cab that currently has 60/40 manual split bench. Will this work? I see some people saying only 95-01 seats will work, what changed from 01-02 in explorer seats?

02 was a redesign year that went away from the rbv platform so nothing is similar. The seats are different so without extensive modification to them they won't just bolt in and work

Any extended cab seats should bolt in (I say should, some people say they have had issues) but the easiest would be 01 to 03 extended cab (can't stress that part enough) seats. 04+ seats are pretty simple too, you just need to keep your 02 buckles/pretensioners as in 04 they changed but that part is easy as well.

Source:

Swapped 2000 seats into a 02 (needed buckles swapped)
2011 seats into a 02 (just a torx bit to take put and put in buckles)
06 seats in a 03 (needed a nut to be sanded down for the buckles, easy to do)

Hi everyone!
Does anyone know if 04 expo seats would fit in a 93 reg cab? If not what kind of mods do you think would need to be done? Thanks
