Default Replacing my seats

Hello every one!

I'm thinking about change my all tan seats with a 2 tone tan seats and
I found this ones:



First:
Which one do you think looks better?

Second:
My actual seats are like the right one but all tan. If I replace it for the one on the left, do I need to do a Mod?

I don't know from what ranger version they came but I want to install it into a 4Dr 01 XLT.

Thanks for your help!

Those seats on the left look to have come out of a 04-05 Ranger. Some people dont like the high back that the 04 and 05 had. Sometime it is hard to see when backing up and also there is a big headrest when looking to your right from the driver seat.

You will need to make sure the seats you want are the same cab configuration. So 2dr ext cab wont work with 4dr ext cab. single cab wont work with est cab.

this x2, but 4dr ext cab and 2dr ext can should be pretty much the same. only difference i could think of would be the 4dr ones may not automatically slide forward. but they should still bolt in.

Well I just talked with the guy who sell it and told me that they came from a 04 Super Cab but also told me that they will need a little mod on the rear bolts holes for 01.

So what do you think... they will fit on my 01 4Dr?

You know they seem to be more comfortable rather than the right ones (my actual seats) but I don't know, never sat down on it.

I have an 01 4dr, I did the swap to black and grey, the ones on the left and I love them. They were a direct swap too

I don't suppose the 60/40 from the 01 would happily slide into a 91' supercab with absolutely no modding.... *sigh* oh to be optimistic

9/10 times if you swap the bottom brackets they will fit.

What!?! Rad! Thats some good info! I'll have to take a bracket and a measuring tape to the junk yard when I get around to it.

Wait, Does this phantom 9/10 include going buckets to 60/40? Thats what I'm looking to do.

I like the ones on the right. I have the gray int and put in a black mustang light, the color contrast looks good. Thinking about buying some black seats I saw at the junk yard.

Buckets and the 60/40 are the same mounting.
