Pass. bucket seat assy.

I'm looking for a passenger seat with the same upholstry I have pictured to fab up a pair of buckets for my 5.0/ 5 speed ranger project. My truck is a 97 with blue /gray cloth . I have a interior trim code if it helps to ID the style. Please let me know...Thanks!!

you can just hack the middle section off real easy and fold the material under. or cut the section off, then take it to a shop and have them resew the cover. if you use a passenger seat, everything is going to be on the wrong side (recline handle, etc.) 98+ can use a passenger bottom to make a bucket, but it won't work for 97 and older. now, you could use the bottom foam and cover, but would still have to cut the driver's seat bottom.

Thanks for your reply...I did cut the bracing and trim up the bottom seat foam and cut and folded the lower cushion material. It looks OK, but the Driver side back has the Torx screw for the arm rest piviot with the hole in the material I do want to get rid of. When i was messing with the passenger seat, I did notice a set of threaded holes to where you can install the recliner mechanisim onthe correct side for driver use. It's been tough finding the matching upholstry to clean these 2 items up to make it look presentable....Kevin
