you could make them work either way. but i think i might go with Evan in saying how low they would sit, which is why its hard to mix and match car and truck seat applications

Having owned a '90 Mustang GT, I can say that those seats really were not comfortable even in brand new condition. I would suggest finding some 95-01 Explorer seats. In either cloth or leather, they are more comfy than even the bucket seats that were OEM in my Ranger and most had power controls too. They are a direct bolt in too which makes them easy to put in.

Yeah, mustang seats are NOT comfortable.. i have friends that have them, even up to 04 they had the same basic shape, I wouldnt even imagine how they would feel like in a truck...I've had explorer leather seats before, then went back to my chopped bench seat, i liked my ranger seats much better, support wise. Good luck with your decision though!

do not do it. Get seats out of the explorer or something else. After 1 good hour of riding it those seats your butt will hurt.

What year? Is it the "upgrade" seats? with the front "ottoman style front extension built in"? Curious. As I hated those seats in my mustang. Was so uncomfortable. I drove that thing on a road trip and hated it. Switched to 4 cylinder BASIC seats and they were 50x more comfortable.

Replace all the foam cushions with new ones and they are very supportive...:)
