Seats for a 2005 Edge regular cab

I just bought a 2005 Ford Ranger 3.0 2wd regular cab off of a guy in the middle of his divorce... Evidently he didnt drive it very often, cause he never noticed that the third brake light bulb was blown and the fact that it leaked... alot evidently... enough to stain the seats up pretty good...

Any idea on seats i could swap into it, it is a regular cab. Ive seen pics on here where some of yall have put explore or sport trac seats into extended cabs, just curious if they will fit in my regular cab...

Thanks for the help

I think you will have to swap the seat tracks, i'm sure someone with a regular cab can chime in and confirm that tho.

nothing really works well with 98+ reg cabs. there are a few that have done some swaps, some pretty easily, while others still take a fair amount of work. if they are just water stains, they can be cleaned. we do mud, blood, milk, animal hair, etc at the shop all the time with great success.

Im guessing you work at a detail shop? How much does it run to get a set of 60/40 seats cleaned? just trying to get an idea as to what i could be looking to pay?

OR how would you go about cleaning them?

Thanks for the help

i don't work for a detail shop. work for an upholstery shop that deals with tons of hurricane/flood insurance jobs. when we clean covers, we pull the covers off and hand wash them in laundry detergent and lysol, rinse them until the wanter runs clear, then air dry.

Either find a set of Ranger Buckets from either the Ext or Std Cab and swap the tracks.
In my ’03 the tracks unbolt.
I swapped and ext cab buckets into my std cab by unbolting the std cab tracks from my 60/40 seats and bolting them up to the ext cab buckets.

If everything else fails, try this… find two ranger in the JY with good 60/40 Seats and the same color. Take the passenger side seats the 40% part and bolt your tracks on the JY seats.

The Seat Covers don’t even need to be the same, you can buy replacement covers form e-bay and have exactly what you want.

The seat pans under the cushions is the same for both the driver’s side and the passenger’s side, the same holes on both sides of the pans so swapping seats from the passenger side to the driver’s side isn’t a problem.

How hard is it to remove the upholstery from a truck seat?


And as far as geting the same year model or similar seats- I would rather have just the old cloth seats or leather for that matter, the 60/40 doesnt really bother me, just want to get away from this material on the seats that tend to stain everytime someone spills the smallest amount of something on them

Its not hard at all. I did it on one of my rangers and it took maybe 5 minutes per seat. The harder part is getting it back on, I thought.

I put mine right in the washer. Then in the dryer on low heat and they came out looking brand new.
