Hell yeah! I was really considering this because there are TONS of really nice escape seats available, and theyre cheap.

This is really cool that you got them to work, I think youre the first one to ever do this. Great job!

It is definitely time consuming but I think it will be well worth it in the end.

Don't foget to swap over the pre tensioners. You NEED them in your Airbag system.

Also, swap 3rd brake lights with that 08 SD in the background!

Looks good man! Let's see it with the other side in now!

Heres an update. I have the driver seat in. I need to cut down the mounts so it does not sit up so high.

Well truthfully don't think it was worth it for the amount of time spent on them and tweaking that I still have to do. But imo they do look really good.

+1 on the Mustang seats. I love the ones in my 09 and wondered what it would take to get them in the Ranger...

Well here they are. They both sit level now. I had to take about 1 1/4" off the driver seat to make them sit at the same height. The only thing I have to do now is find a good console and wire up the driver seat for power.

Wow man! Those look so awesome! Glad you were able to make them work and they look really great in the truck! I would say find yourself a lvl2 black console and call it good!

I have a full length expo console but I would much rather have a lvl2 console but they are so hard to find.

Thanks man. They are pretty comfy I think the seat foam is a little harder than the ranger seats but they are not bad at all.

IDK... I may just put the full length in, but I would really like to find the short console like the ones in the lvl2s and edges.
