2002 FX4 Question

Hey all,

Was wondering if the 2002 FX4 was only offered in an extended cab model.

Also, are the seat track patterns the same for both buckets and 60/40, assuming they both came out of extended cab rangers? Reason being, if I have buckets that came out an extended cab ranger, will the holes bolt right up if I currently have a Split Bench?

Thanks guys.

1. yes the FX4 is only offered in extended cabs....

2. yes the seat tracks will bolt directly up to one another....they have the same bolt locations in the floor pans...

Well, the seats I'm looking at are in FL, so I don't think they came out of a Canadian regular cab. Hopefully.

even if they did, you could just swap out the tracks off your seats to the buckets......there is only 4 bolts that hold the tracks to the seat itself...

Whoa Whoa Whoa

I don't even want to go down that route with these seats. Everyone who has ever replied to my seat questions always say "swap the seat tracks."

To which I say, it is impossible. I say that, because when I ask how, I never get an answer. I have a set of 2002 Regular Cab seats. They won't directly bolt into my ext cab.

As for removing those tracks, well, just take a look at the bottom of the seat. First you have the runners (black and actually bolt into the truck) that are in the tracks (grey and what the black slider slides forward and back in). True, there are four bolts. But taking these bolts off will not remove the tracks. This is because on one side, you have the seat back handle and its mechanism which is attached to one track. One the other track, the seat belt mechanism is attached. I have found no way to remove them for the tracks.

I have tried to remove the sliders (black part), from the track. This takes a lot of brute force, and once they sliders and actually hammered out (yes hammered, dimples and berrings keep them locked in), I'm not sure if I'd be able to get them back in.

I'm sure on older seats... say, pre 93 where the seat belt is bolted to the floor and not the seat, the tracks are a ton easier to take off and switch. As for these seats... 02, and 05 alike, I have found no easy way to remove the tracks. And unfortunatly, when I plead for clarification, no one can give me an answer.

Very well... to atone for offending this thread and me personally , you must now tell me how to remove the tracks from my 2002 60/40 split bench. And I don't wanna hear "Just remove the 4 bolts"!

phew! ok, I'm calm. But ya gotta trust me on this one. I have taken the 4 bolts out, and the tracks will just not come off. There is something else holding them on. I even had a friend come over who who had previously told me to just remove the 4 bolts. Even he couldn't get them off after removing them. So I'm stumped.
