My next question, I have found a bunch of 4 door explorers in the year range of 95-01. Does it matter if its 2 door or 4 door? I didnt see anything throughout this thread. Thanks

you can use explorer seats, but you would need to get a set of gen 3 reg cab tracks as well. you will probably need to mod them slightly, but shouldn't be too much if you can do light fab (mainly drilling new holes in the tracks). this would also allow you to use mustang, bronco II, any other ones from the list. just mount your seat belt to the side of your seat and go.

just don't get any power seats (explorer). power lumbar would be ok, but no power movement. you wouldn't be able to use it anyways.

So my first order of Business will be get these tracks- My plan is this-#1 Find the tracks. #2 Pull the passengers side first so I can still drive #3 Find Bucket seats that fit these said Tracks so everything Bolts in- #4 Repeat Steps 1, 2, 3 on the drivers side! OK.... Couple more thoughts here- How about Console? and Flooring? Whats my best options for least amount of $$$? thanks friends...

95-01 ex, or up to 03 ex sports/tracs will bolt in directly using explorer tracks (manual or power). you may need to enlarge a couple holes, but nothing major.

I found some really nice Mustang seats - do the tracks work or do I need to swap.
