yup...I also have an extended cab. One of the bolt holes on the front of the seat base (where it bolts into the floor) DO require opening up a bit at lease in my case. The Explorer I got my leather/power seats from (a 2001 model with FX interior code seats) used a slight smaller bolt on one location (one of the fronts) than what the four that came from my stock Ranger buckets. The other 3 on each seat were the same as my Ranger bolts. Some years may be different, I'm not sure. Other than that, besides the seat belt bracket as Lifted97Ranger mentioned it is a direct bolt in. When you swap on the seat belt bracket, use a high quality bolt. I used Grade 8 stainless and a nylon lock washer. Overkill is a good idea here.
