not all seats will fit... did you have any particular seats in mind? You may need to swap seat tracks or fab up your own brackets for the seats or something.

Any seats COULD be put in... it's a matter of how much time/effort/money you want to put into it.

I was just wondering. I was going to do the bucket seat mod where you cut off the arm rest but thought it would be easier and look better to put totally different seats in.

yeah it dpends hugely on the seat type. rangers and maybe explorers in your generation would fit each other, but aside from that, Its gonna be custom fabbed. It wouldnt be hard at all though, all you need is to weld decently and come up with a simple design that you could impliment.

I'll show you in about a week

I have personally installed leather buckets out of a Sportrac into my 02. All i had to do was wire them up and then round out the bolt holes on the seat tracks a little bit. Worked out great for me!

If you are tall and want to sit a little lower in your truck, you could ditch the seat tracks all together and put in Escort GT seats, like I did, and just bolt them to the floor.
