I do know the tracks are different. The explorer seats WILL bolt right into an Extended Cab, but NOT the regular cab. You will have to find a set of Regular Cab Seat tracks and switch them out.

For a standard cab you would have to switch the tracks out for the one's you have now, or fab up some new tracks. If you swapped the seat track's you'd those the power option. What color are the explorer seats your getting?

while there is a thread on this topic... I'm looking for some explorer seats myself. I have a friend who runs a junk yard so they probably won't be too hard to get, but my questions are #1: what year explorer seats will fit my 01 Edge ext. cab? I think I read a post about only certian years fitting our trucks? or was that center consoles? #2: If I'm able to find a set with power options is my ranger already set-up for them or will i have to do some wiring?

Sorry to highjack the thread but i figured I'd jump on an active topic instead of starting a new one.

'95-'01 Explorer seats are a direct bolt in for a Supercab Ranger. You will have to do some wiring, but it is simple. Just a fused 12V power and ground. I upgraded and used the power wire I already had back there for my Sirius radio tuner box and simply grounded into the seat track mounting bolts that go into the floor. Heres some pics of my '01 seats in my '03 Ranger. I replaced all the seat foam in both for a nice new feel. I really like them and they are very comfortable although I eventually plan to get new leather for them in black and tan to better match my interior.

Read the rest of the thread (Up), it explains what to do with a regular cab. You will need to swap out the seat tracks and that makes the power seat function un-usable. Shoulda got a Supercab...lol! The power seat is nice. Up, down, front, back, tilt the seat front to back, and of course the seat back is manually controlled. If you find a set of higher end seats (from an Explorer Limted for example) you also get memory and heated seats.

Because all the electric motors and hardware are located in the Explorer seat track/base. Unless you could find some way to remove all these and fab them up onto the regular cab seat tracks, they simply would not be there.
