Explorer Seats in Reg Cab

Ok guys, I have been trying my best to install or figure a way of how to install the 2000 b3000 seat track and brackets on the 98 seat frame. I have not yet figured it out. I'm looking for help after searching just brings up that it can be done and nobody is showing install pics of it. I have my passenger seat tore completely down and the bracks are sitting on the explorer seats. I dont know if Igotta bend or cut or dill new holes are not.

It looks to be a almost direct bolt on although the holes in the floor are around 9.5" center to center on the front of passenger seat. When I try to bolt the brackets up the seat slider bar has to be widen to accomadate this new seat.

Any Idea's other than yes it can be done or do a search.....After 2 hours on this one seat my patience is running out and I dont want to have re-install the factory seat back together and re install it in the truck.

Help?

here are some pics.








Notice the last picture shows the angle bracket from the other seat the bolt used to go threw it and now they are too wide. What did you guys do in this situation? any help would be appreciated.

In the last picture, it bolts fine in the front of the seat, but it can't swivel to match the rear bolt hole. In the second to the last picture, it looks like that big block piece interfears such that you can't swivel the braket to match the rear bolts. Can't you just hack this black pice off? I am not sure, but it looks likes you don't need it.
