How do I wire these things up? Is The seat belt wire is the same as the power wire?I know im going to have to reuse the female end of the buckels from my current seats. Do I just run a positive and a ground through that plug or is there more too it?

look for 2 wires that are Black and Black and White. The Black is the ground and the Black and White is the Power. Cut off the connector and extended the wires ground the black to a screw underneath the seat and hook up the black and white to a power source in one open location in the fuse box. Don't forget to add an inline fuse so you don't cause a fire or short it out badly. Hope you already figured it out but this is how i did mine.

Trust me... there's like 8-10 wires under the seat right? Follow them..

I bet money they don't go anywhere

Just the black and black/white for power and ground. It's dumb I know.. I did the same thing with mine when I got them

The two connectors that are the same are the explorer seat belt connection, which you can't use in your ranger. The big gray plug attached to the black center support should be the main power, except it looks like you don't have the vehicle side pigtail. I would get that so that you could remove the seats later if needed instead of hard wiring them. I just bought some seats out of a 2000 heated and power that I haven't installed yet so if you have anymore question just ask and I can look at them. I have seemed to have all the wiring figured out.

Thanks,
Jason
