Install on exploder pwr seats question

i found a set of 95 exploder front seats. They are leather and power. The question i have is (would a non powered seat ranger have power connections already run under the carpet.) Or.... how would i hook it up so the powered features work.. Or.. would i just swap the tracks and make it like a stock Ranger seat non power just slide.

I don't think there will be any hook-ups under the carpet. That would make it super easy. Then I'd even put power seats in my truck.

I put Mountaineer (same as explorers) seats in my 96.....was a direct bolt in except the seatbelt mount. Explorers seatbelt mounts to the tunnel and the rangers bolt to the floor. You can simply put your seatbelt track in place of the explorers. As far as the wiring...as stated above...just run a fused power wire to seat area and split it off to each seat.Then ground the other wires. I got my power source from the radio harness (yellow/black wire) and used the seatbelt mounting bolts as the ground.

out of everything that i thought of...completly removing the bar was the easiest. my passenger seat would not slide with the bar for some reason. hopefully this weekend i can do up the driver seat as well.
