unless they are explorer sport or sport trac, no they will not bolt in. not to mention, you probably have airbag weight sensors in your seats that would have to be dealt with.

95-01 explorers or up to 03 ex sports/tracs will bolt in ext cabs, if you aren't concerned with air bag stuff.

Sweet, thank you

Also, Do I need to get them from a 2dr ext cab explorer if I have a 2dr ext cab ranger??

ok, this sounds stupid to me even, but I have a 99 xcab and so if I choose any of the above replacement seats all I may have to do is make holes bigger or minor minor modification and it bolts right in?

Taurus seats - any word on a fit there?

My wife has just picked up a fully loaded, pristine '03 Taurus with leather seats and they are significantly more comfortable than my cloth Ranger 60/40 buckets.

I could be tempted to start scouring the junkyards for a set if they will work.

Here is what seats will bolt in to a Ranger:

Tempo/Topaz

All years. Tempo GT's are the nicest. Tilting "pillow" headrest and frequently power lumbar.

Escort/Lynx

1981-1991? GT's again are the nicest, "Halo" style headrest, sometimes power lumbar.

(The 'Halo' Buckets in the TRS-2 Ranger are from an Escort GT)

Mustang

Don't bother looking they will be gone when you get there. If you're lucky, look for Mustang GT's. Also halo style headrests on GTs.

Thunderbird

1982-1988, Turbocoupe has nicest seats same as Mustang GT but with tilting "pillow" head rests, almost always power-lumbar, adjustable thigh support, adjustable side bolsters on base. The best factory ford seat (IMHO).

1986 Merkur XR4TI

The front seats from an 86 Merkur XR4TI will fit in a B2, so I assume rangers too, If you drill out the rivets, and swap the brackets from the tracks, 1/2 hour per, the seats I used gave me height adjust, adjustable headrest, lumbar support, much better lateral support, (no more bouncing out of the seatbelt) and they're heated. (Submitted by Merc)

All of these will bolt directly to your factory tracks if you have either Buckets or split-bench.

If you have a conventional bench then you will need to replace your tracks with split-bench/bucket-seat tracks. (Toss your solid bench tracks they are completely different).

You will have to run a Tap through some pre drilled holes in the bottom of the seat frames. The holes are already there but unthreaded.

If you have a conventional cab Ranger you will probably have to use the "halo" style headrest used in Mustangs and Escort GT models, as the pillow style will hit the rear window. This forces the seat back into a very upright position. (and is EXTREMELY uncomfortable)

If you have a Supercab Ranger or a Bronco2 headrest clearance isn't an issue.

One other word of warning Ranger Standard-cab, Ranger Supercab and Bronco II's all have different floor pan profiles and so use different seat tracks, so if you want to put buckets or a split-bench into a std cab Ranger you must get your seat tracks out of a std cab Ranger.

if you have a reg cab, just a bench from a gen 3 reg cab and bolt it in using the bench seat tracks. if you have an ext cab, get gen 3 reg cab bench, bolt front two in, drill two new holes in your floor for the rear.

anything on the list will bolt to a set of gen 3 reg cab bucket seat tracks. you will have to drill two holes per seat, near the trans tunnel. i enjoyed my mustang seats, the explorer seats are nice, but i'm in love with my b2 seat right now. width wise, all the seats on the list are pretty much the same. some have taller backs, built in head rests, removable head rests, or no head rests.

I am just now taking a break from the initial (all tack welds) fit up of putting 03 Stang seats in mine. Power driver seat. Fit is good, seat belt lines up well, but mounts are all fabricated (torch/welder). I used the original mount holes due to the reinforcement underneath the floor pan around them.
I fitted an 04 4dr Explorer driver seat, but set up to high for my height. Fuzz on top of head touched the headliner.
