I have a 2000 reg cab and just bought 90 mustang seats with leg extension .I just took the passenger seat track of the ranger seat.. There is no way that just bolts on. Any of you in here done this seat swap? I was under the impression its a bolt in type deal..but its not

It probably is for the earlier trucks. By 00 you start to have all sorts of issues swapping seats due to the airbag system.

If I remember right, pre 97 seat tracks are what people use. Check older threads. I put 86 SVO seats in my 98 w/ 98 tracks. Did a lot of modifying but it worked. Only thing is it mounts seats about 1" higher.

I tried it in my 87, and the Mustang seats bolted right to my tracks after I tapped the correct holes on the seat frame.

I never installed it though because the seat was in bad shape.

Actually got one done yesterday, it is a direct bolt on swap once you cut or drill the 5/6 rivots to get to the track only..

Will 2004 Ford Explorer seats work in a 1995 Ford Ranger XLT?
Have an eye on some. Will the second row seats work also, or can a person put the seats on the Ranger tracks, to make them work?

You might get the front seats to work, the second row will be a hopeless mess no matter what you do with them.

If you put them up front there is no adjustment, and I think they'd be too low. If you put them in the rear there would be no leg room.
