Ranger seats on Explorer power seat tracks?

Is it possible to put Ranger seats on Explorer power seat tracks and make them work? *See picture below for seats I am talking about

The reason I am asking is because I want the FX4 blac/red seats, but I want to keep the full power.

Also, would the black/red seats look good on a grey interior

they can't be that bad......your just a panzie

the reason i want to go to a stock seat on the power tracks is cause the way the Explorer seats raise up on the side....with my truck being tall and me having to fall out of it and climb in it, it wears/tears the sides of the seats.....since the stock seats are not raised on the side, it would be easier on the side of the seats (that and my truck is burgandy)

If I could ever FIND a nice, non-damaged pair of Explorer powered seats I'd install them in my rig.

If you want level II seats, go with 2003 and lower (just my opinion)

EDIT: I maybe a pansie, but so is everyone else who rides in my truck, because they complain about em too!

^^^07 seats are a little different than those, to the eye its just the head rests, but they may have added more padding and lower back support. All I know is that my 04 seats (IMO) suck on a 5 hour trip up north...

Personally, I think the Explorer leather seats look better in a Ranger than the FX4 seats do, at least those that I've seen. The FX4 seat styling is more suited to a street sedan, IMO.

i agree that the Explorer leather seats look better in a Ranger, but like i said, i have broken down the side of my driver seat sides that stick up because of the truck being lifted.......the sides stick up too far for a lifted truck.....

OK, I got it. In that case you'd probably be better off with some FX4 seats.

As you know, the Ex seats themselves actally sit flat on the top of their tracks and the bolt holes are all at 90 degree angles to each other. So if you could confirm the same thing with the FX4 seats, then you should be good to go. Even if the bolt holes don't line up, if the bottom of the FX4 seats are flat (like the Ex seats), then it would be fairly easy to fabricate an "adapter plate", I'd have to think.
