up to 97 reg cabs should be a direct bolt in, tracks and all, 98+ reg cabs may require a little work. ext cab tracks will not work.

I bought 3 3 inch angle brackets from Home Depot and rigged it to the seat mount

I see this is an old thread but wondering how common this problem is. I have an 88 XLT standard cab and the passenger outside rear mount is rotted through. Looking at the few I can find in junkyards seem to show this is a common problem. Any tips on where to find new or used mounts in good shape? The 60/40 seat is decent but could use recovering.

It is not a common problem but with a 28 year old Ranger anything is possible.
