Default Explorer Buckets?

Will these Explorer Bucket Seats work for my 2000 2WD XLT without any kind of modification?

They'll fit right in. I drilled out all 4 posts on the seats to make mounting easier:

how do you suggest the best way to run wire for the Explorer seats? I currently have the driver side seat belt monitor running, but don't see any other wiring harness... thoughts?

i pulled my carpet up and ran it under the carpet along the tranny tunnel, then put the driver wire out the same hole the seat belt wire comes out of, and as to the pass wire, i ran a wiretap on the same side of the tunnel then ran the wire over the hump and cut a little hole in my carpet and routed it thru. what i did was ran a power wire off my battery, like you would for an amp.

by "drivers seat belt monitor" the chime that goes off if the driver isn't buckled in. that annoying chime has power running to the belt monitor, is it ok to run power to that, or should I run seperate power from the battery? Thanks,

do you find the white on your interior is hard to maintain white, keeping clean?
