07 mustang buckets

Hey I found an awesome deal on some black cloth mustang seats out of an 07. I have a 99 xlt regular cab ranger and was wondering what it would take to put them in? Thanks in advance.

You might be able to bolt the actual seat to your factory track with a little bit of work. That would probably be the quickest/easiest.

x2 but I am not sure how well they would fit in the ranger. The floor design of the mustang is so much different then the ranger. And I think the seats might lean back too much for a regular cab.

no. those seat tracks are all integrated together. in order to replace the tracks, you have to replace the entire bottom section.

IIRC, don't mustang seat brackets pretty much have little clearance?
Rangers have like 4-6" and i don't think mustangs have much over 3"
so, you'd be sitting awkwardly.

Can the Stang seat tracks be removed, maybe unbolted like some of the Ranger seat tracks.

My ’03 tracks unbolted.

If both unbolt then the process is a little simpler.

Thks saw that but thought maybe it was another path to look at.

The one piece thing is what I thought the Ranger was until I started what I thought was a welding/fab project and wham bam all of the underneath unbolted.

Luck with your seat change.

i have a set of these seat frames out behind my garage. i considered looking into figuring it out, but haven't had any time to do so. i know the feet on the tracks are not even, one side is longer than the other. pretty sure everything is attached.

I'm going to go grab them tomorrow and go from there. I read on another forum that a guy ground down the rivets and with some work got the bolts to line up. http://www.therangerstation.com/foru...d.php?t=113234
