Part numbers/crossover numbers

I'm thinking about swapping out the front seats on my 2008 Ranger extended cab and trying to find a seat that would simply bolt into the existing bolt locations. I found the following website that is useful regarding part numbers and crossover numbers. i.e.: Ranger to Explorer & etc.

www.FordParts.com

Maybe it'll be useful to you folks as well.

I think that site is for new prts, are we talking new here ?

Other than that think Rangers, Explorers, Mountaineers for bolt in setups.

A nice set of Explorer Powered Leather Seats would work nicely, you can add heat easliy with after market heaters. These come in Dk Gray, Lt Gray and Tan.

Explorer Sport Buckets, are cloth, have the Driver’s Seat Powered but not the Passenger’s Seat but they are nice Seats, keep you in place. They come in two levers of Grey, no black that I have found.

There are a few Ranger that come with bucket seats, cloth, but no power, no heat, no leather except for one year around 03 an FX4, LvL II, try an find those.
When looking for Ranger Seats look for the same cab configuation and they should bolt in, if the cab is different, look to see if the Seat Tracks can be removed, that might help aking them fit.

Not sure what you are lookng for but there is a bunch of options out there.

Thanks for the reply! Any idea what year seats I would need for a bolt-in for my '08 extended cab? I currently have the OEM buckets in the truck.

Sorry about that. The correct website for all years is www.fordpartswebsite.com. The years go as far back as 1979.

I picked up some seats for an '03 Explorer. They are in excellent shape. The car had 20K on the clock when the seats were pulled out and they look new. They are power seats. (I think that they have heat as well but I won't know until I take a look at a wiring diagram.) They are tan. I also have the 'pig tails' that should allow me to wire them into the Ranger.

At first glance I don't think that they'll fit the '08 Ranger without a whole lot of modification. It'll take me a few days to really think the swap over. (I don't want to butcher up either the new seats or the old ones to 'make' them fit.)

If I don't use them I'll sell them for what I paid: $300.00. To be picked up in New Milford, CT. I'll keep you all posted.

Unless the cabs between 03 and 08 have changed a lot, I think not, they should bolt in with minor rework.
The mounting holes may need to be opened up slightly.
luck
