Explorer Sport will have really nice seat that should be almost a bolt in, adjustable heat rest that doesn’t get in your way. They are a little wider but should fit, also they sort of hug you when you seat in them. P.C and I tried out a set of Sport Seats in a local JY and both of us thought they held you in place more than the Explorer reg seats.
IF you remove the power section on the driver’s seat then you may be able to use the original seat brackets from the 60/40 Bench (they unbolt off the seat pan)…
I used a set of Ranger Buckets Sats from a EXt Cab, swapped the Std Cab 60/40 Bench sseat bracket on to the Bucket and they were a bolt in.
here is another thought… I have used it before so ou may have heard it.
The Passenger Seat in the 60/40 Bench is a std bucket seat… thinking/smoke.
If you get a passenger seat from the JY that matches your seats you will be able to remove the driver’s side seat bracket and bolt things up.
Do you follow that ?
The seat pans on the bucket seats and the passenger side of the 60/40 have the same seat pans, the same holes on both side so everything will swap over.
Take a look and see what I am saying and you will have a cheap set of bucket seats; there is one thing though, the passenger seat does not have the lumbar support, you might be able to add that later.
