Default 60/40 seat swap from newer Ranger???

I have read ALL of the seat info out here on FRF, by all means.

But, I am still confused on fitting newer seats in an older truck.
My question/example goes like this.

I have a 2000 XL 2.5L std cab 5 speed stick, vinyl floor, with the 60/40 vinyl bench seats, no center console, etc. Can I fit the same 60/40 newer bench split from a 2005 in my 2000 Ranger? Have an opportunity to get a nice set of the updated Black/Gray vinyl 60/40 set with console, and was just wondering if it will fit in my truck.

Has anyone done this or know that it will fit up to the existing rails, etc?

This is what I am looking to grab for my 2000 XL std cab...
2005 blk/gry 60/40 update

I'm wanting to put the exact same seats in my 94 splash...
So is that to say that any standard cab 60/40's will fit in any standard cab with 60/40's?

should be pretty close. i know there are a few people running gen 3 tracks in their gen 4s. may take some trimming to get them in. one person i talked to had to do some mods, while another said it completely bolted in.

to the OP and turbo, you will have to change around your seat belt's on the seat. but that's not a big deal.

they can be made to work. the amount of work just depends on your cab. ext cab to ext cab should pretty much drop right in, while reg cab to reg cab will be like i posted above. ext cab to reg cab is a no go.

Default 60/40 seat swap from newer Ranger, DONE!!!!!

Well got my 2005 Duratec std cab seats swapped in today. No problem, bolted right up with ease. So, for the record, I scored a 60/40 split seat set, with console and additional cup holders, two tone blk/gray...

Seat set was from a totaled, 54K low mile 2005 std cab and I installed them in my 2000 std cab. Pulled my seats, scrubbed the vinyl/rubber floor, and began the installation. Seats are in PERFECT condition, no rips, tears, wear, nothing. Little dirty, but will be shampooing everything tomorrow. Did not have the energy left today to do it, will do in the morning.

Here are some pics...

My truck with the old school vinyl before the swap:



Old worn vinyl pulled:



Like NEW 2005 Duratec std cab 2 tone seats with flip down console and cup holders, NICE!!! (SUPER Cheap too, huge score)



Watta mess, time to scrub...



Floor clean and pass seat in!



Love it, looks great, added a console and SO much more comfortable, no more bar in the back!!!





2 more cupholders!!




The only "issue" I ran into, as expected, was the seat belt locks needed to be swapped over from my existing seats. No big deal, just unbolt them and swap them over, I am thrilled with the final product. Really comfortable, functional, and looks AWESOME. Now I am going to tint the back window limo, will add a great touch...

Thx for lookin'
