here's what i did, for removing them you can either use needle nos epliers and bend them, or wire cutters and cut them. Second method is easier and quicker. just be sure to get the pieces out. to put the new ones on I used vise grips to pinch them down most of the way, and gave them a final go with the needle nose pliers to get them nice and tight.

And jason, mine included fabric for the console lid. which is what he told me, yours came with the entire lid. mine included fabric for the lid and the console itself (but no blue stitching?!) regardless it could use new fabric, I just don't know how to do it. He told me he would send a file with pictures of how to do that sometime, so we'll see.

And how much did you disassemble your seats? I removed the back from the seat, as well as the seat cushion/bracket from the lower bracket. made things easier for the install i think.

I just removed the seat cushion and under it were four 8mm bolts that I took out to lift up the aluminum part of the seat to get the back side plastic pieces out. He said he has no instructions, so i went into it blind. I meant to take pictures to make a how-to, but I forgot and wasn't about to put my truck back together to start over and do it.

Hey Michael,

Those blue seats look great in your Sonic Blue Ranger. I'm going to put them in my Vista Blue Ranger.
How much would you charge to install a set in my truck?

golly i'll take it as a compliment to how well I did! but I really don't think I'd be able to charge for it, honestly it isn't hard to figure out. I'll tell you what though, if you want me to help you out some weekend we could meet up and work on them, and you can buy me lunch or something simple. Even if it's just McDonalds haha.

I certainly had some imperfections that I'm still not completely satisfied with. I alsodon't think I'm good enough to start charging for installs but I wouldn't care helping out for some free food!

come down and make a fishing trip out of it..............

if you guys are thinking of buying a set of hog ring pliers, i highly suggest not buying the ones in the link above. they will end up bending after a couple hog rings.

Well, they look good to me ... I'm sure you learned a lot from replacing your seat covers. I'd be willing to help you out and buy you a few Big Macs and maybe some of those McDonalds gift certificates :-) I'll be glad when wvcat gets my Ranger done. (I know I have to be patient though)
