Seatbelt receiver anchor for aftermarket seats?

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the board, so forgive me if this isnt in the right place. I did a search but coouldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

I have a 2000 Ranger XLT 2.5L with regular cab with 60/40 bench. I would like to install a Procar 80-1500-52L drivers seat or the 80-1300-52L .if fit is a problem I have a couple questions though:

1) will this seat fit? I think so, but any personal experiences you can relay are appreciated
2) The Ranger seat belt receiver is attached to the frame of the seat. Because of the electrics, I would like to use the tock receiver but there doesn't seem to be a place on the Procar seat or adapter to attach it. Can I attach it to the floor with some sort of extender and plugin the electrics? if so which extender?
3) can i use the middle seat receiver or anchor point?
4) is there another model receiver I can get off a junker which will bolt in somewhere and plug in also, easily?

Thank you for your help. You ca see the seat here if you are interested: https://www.scatvw.com/product/classic-grey-vinyl/

thanks I found this

and am going to bolt this to the floor where the center seat belt was anchored, then bolt the Ranger receiver to it. This should give me enough room to use the belt, I'll just have to reach down for the receiver. Any reason this shouldn't/couldn't work?

You could get a seat out of an Explorer/Mustang for a lot cheaper then that aftermarket seat, but I still had to weld the seatbelt receiver onto the bottom.

thanks for your reply! Couldn't find one in decent shape for much less. They quoted me $350 for a good condition junkyard ranger seat shipped and I didn't find an Explorer seat without a bunch of crap I don't want and all listill $200-$300 plus shipping. It needs a new seat anyway. It is 20 yrs old and wore out! I like that one because no countours, which never really fit me that great anyway.

Well I mean, you gotta go to like pull-a-part/LKQ/other you-pull-it type of junkyard and get your own seats for like $30/ea.
