i put a passenger seat in my drivers seat rails. i did this with both rangers i had. you could go for explorer seats or something. the only thing with my setup is that the lever to tilt the seat forward is in the middle of the truck but i can put stuff be hind the seat so theres no need to tilt it anyways. good luck

Seats from a bronco II or first gen explorer will work you just need 60/40 or bucket seat seat rails . if you have bench in the truck now you will most likly have to drill holes for the inner tracks

PM 93mk8, he may want to trade your bench for his 60/40 which you could easily mod into buckets

you should still have holes in the floor for the 60/40 seats to bolt to. if you do then you just need the tracks off some of them and a set of bucket seats.

Ok I will pm 93mk8. Does he lve in mchigan. The driver side seat rail is rusted so I got to take the seat out so I can move it a bit back cuz I'm 6'2 and is kinda tight in the leg and also from the wheel to my stomach. So I figured since I got it out I mine as well put in buckets. The seat cover is in 9/10 condition. There is just a little rip on the top my the back window and that's the only bad thng about the cover
