99 Ranger seat belt tightner ?

I hope anyone could help me with a question. I Am a big guy, and I need to use my truck using the seat belt almost fully stretched out when I use it. Now this has been doing on for years and now when I close the seat belt it doesn't always spring back into the truck. I can bull it back a if i notice it and pull it back in the slot , but sometimes if I don't do it I will notice that my door is shut and see the belt hanging up. Is there something I can tighten this, or buy a part to make it not do this. I am not an automotive type guy "as you can see", but would like to do this for free or cheap to fix it. Thanks for your time.

I would go to the junkyard and get a whole new seatbelt assembly.

Thanks for the suggestion. Would it be possible for me to switch the drivers side seat belt to the passenger side seat belt. I never need use it on the passenger side. Thanks

Someone has done that before, but you shouldn't do it cuz your not really fixing the problem. If you do switch them still get another one
