yea i guess it is a crapshoot but i have had some ideas about what i am going to do. im thinking i can cut off the old mounting points on the toyota seats and weld a piece of flat bar across which would make up for the wider tracks and then cut or make new mounting brackets to match the ranger bolt holes i think it will sit about a 1/2 in higher in the end but it is well worth it
sorry cant find my camera but here is a rough idea

depending on what type of fabricator you are anything can fit.

I don't know of anyone that has actually done it though

If they fit in the truck, you can fab something up for sure. Just need a welder and some know how.

i wouldn't say that. anything is possible if your pockets are deep enough. some time with a welder and some flat stock just about anything is possible.

your idea is right on. i got to do something similar to put the 65 mustang seats in my truck, but the width is fine for me, the length is off.

i would cut the wires off as far up as you can. don't worry about the rest of the airbag, it should be just fine as it is.
