Default Explorer Power Seats In 94 Ranger?

I was wondering if any power seats out of an explorer aka "Exploder" would fit in a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT Super Cab. And what modifacations would be needed to convert manual seats in the 94 ranger to electric power seats from a Explorer? Or if it's even possible.

if your truck is an extended cab they will bolt right in they will sit you a little higher up though and you will have to run a power wier and ground i believe thats all though

yep, pretty much it. you may need to enlarge a hole or two, but nothing major!

You may need to swap the seatbelt brackets from the ranger seats to the explorer seat tracks, I had to do that when I installed my 98 expo seats in my 96 ranger... maybe enlarge a couple bolt holes and run a power wire (fused at the battery) to the seats & a ground (as mentioned).
I grounded my seats using a large ring terminal sandwiched between the seat rail & the body... when the seat bolt is tightened, the seat gets grounded.
