1998 supercab seat swap options?

Currently has the stock buckets in it and I'd like to stay with buckets. Reason for the swap is I need lumbar support.

So what will bolt in and provide lumbar support?

I've read several of the post on here discussing seat swaps trying to pick up on the specific points that I need to be aware of, (track length, bolt patterns, super or ext cab vs standard cab, 98+ vs 97 and prior, power lumbar support). It'd be cool if someone would summarize the main points. I'm a part time part swapper not a gearhead.

Picked up this link in my search, any others out there.

some mazda b-series had "airbag" lumbar support. i just went with explorer leather bucket seats. both sides were full power except for manual lumbar support. all u need to do is bore out the holes on the explorer seats because the hole in the floor in the rangers is larger.



you'll need to also bore out a hole to mount your seatbelt buckles to the seat too

^ this. explorers will basically bolt in, and you can get all the lumbar you want.

Thanks. The stock buckets I have, have the dial for adjusting the lumbar support but I don't feel anything moving when I turn it. Shouldn't be too hard to find some Explorer seats in the salvage yards.
