mounting expo seats in a newer ranger?

So I have my expo seats and some very detailed instructions from him on how to install them. But my 07 is a bit different from his 01(I think) as far as the seat belt pretensioner goes. Just looking for a good writeup on how its done on a newer ranger or to hear from someone who has done it on a newer ranger. Just not sure how to go about mounting the stock buckle and pretensioners from my seats since the two are different

If your going to keep your original buckle then you will need to mod the seat. I don't have a pretensioners so I just modded the explorer stuff.

IF your 07 Seat have a similar Pre-Tenioner as the ’03 (and I do not know) you can do the drill and bolt on mod.
BUT, IMHO, use some reenforcement plates around the area you bolt to.
The seat frames are minimal at best, maybe just a plate on the inside of the frame would be better than nothing at all.
Can you get a pic of the 07 Pre-Tensioner, it would be interesting to compare them ?
I can get you a pic of the type used on the 03 Seats, actually out of a ’99.
