Driver seat broke !!!!!

The previous owner must of had been a larger man/woman.. Cause my 96 Ranger xlt just broke the seat latch. It no longer will support any form of weight. If i lean back at all.. the seat snaps.. and i fall backwards getto style driving it.

any advise on fixing it ? or swaps to a better seats ?

Put a milk create behind your seat, or a snow brush.....LOL I'm not kidding!!! That happened to me in my old Shadow. The seat snapped back so I put my snow brush back there untill it ripped through the seat....then it was a mile crate. It wasn't pretty, but it was all I could do untill going to the junk yard for a new seat...LOL
