R U talking full length or shorty.
IMHO the shorty is more practical and far less work to install.
The full length consoles, although OK, take way too much time to remove from the X and you break clips, when done yes they look good but a lot of trouble to me.
Shorty Consoles bolt in, fit with all seats and there is no special boots required for the shifter and there is room for a Manual T/C shifter if needed later on.

As far as Bucket Seats go, what are you looking for, full power, leather, Lumbar Supports… ?
IF all you want is a Bucket Seat, i.e. Cloth to match your existing seats, no power, no Lumbar Support, think about this… go to the JY, find another Ranger with the same interior as your and a good passenger’s seat. Grab the seat, take the slider Framework from your existing Driver’s Seat and install it on the newly acquired Passenger’s Seat, yes it will fit.
Try to get a seat from as close to your year ranger as possible.

Just talking here, so check things out before you go there.

so your saying put the passanger seat in the driver spot. That is actually a good idea. I'd like tan leather power seat like the grey ones yuor selling but in the meantime I might try your idea. My backrest broke one day when I lifted up to remove a weggie.

You can use a manual shifter with a full length console. It just takes some modding.
