15mm or T55 torx...i've seen both in Expos.

They'll bolt in, might need to ream out a hole or two. Is your truck an x-cab? I'm assuming it is. If reg cab, seat track swap is needed.

well, they closed at 6 but they let me get the passenger seat out and i got that in now, lol bolts were 10mm the only prob i saw was that the driver side is a power seat, and its not moved up enough to get to the rear bolts...does anyone know of a way to move the seat up?

Got a jump box? Or if you can drive up to it, jumper cables. Or if you have an extra car battery around throw that on it. Putting power to it would be the easiest way, and probably the only way.

i doubt they'd let me drive back there, and idk if i would want to anyways with all the glass and shiz, i might just try to grab a wrench and see if i can get to the two back ones that way then splice the power wire once the seats out

Yeah...might be a pain, but you can get to 'em with a combo wrench or a ratchet and a stubby socket.

Never ever ever heard of yard credit. If that existed here, I wouldn't have soooo freakin' many spare parts!!

done done done, might have pics up tonight! wiring was extremely easy and i just used the seat bolts as the ground and ran a wire to a add a curcuit fuse in the fuse box, all in all swap probably took 5 or 6 hours cause it was about 95 degrees today and i was moving like a snail to get everything in and it took a couple attempts to get the bracket in the right place
