Bucket Seats and center console (short one with drink holders in frt of each other) would be nice.

Look for an Explorer Sport with the Pioneer CD6 Stereo, not sure if the CD6 is different from the standard CD6 but the speakers are, especially the front speakers they have separate tweeters. Get all four of the speakers just in case.

Not sure if the Overhead Console from an Explorer will fit but could be a nice add-on.

luck on the hunt.

Thinking back all those years , swapping a bench for bucket seats REALLY ticked off the girlfriend , as she couldn't sit beside me anymore.
Getting close at a drive-in was quite ......difficult.

I did this to mine. except i had bucket seats to start with.
You have a reg cab correct? Send a PM to a guy named Troy, i think his name is dropplyrngr? (someone else chime in on that) in case i forgot something.

You'll need a Metric socket set. probably a flat head screw driver.

Find an Explorer sport. the inside will look something like this


the truck in case you don't know.

REMOVAL:

You want to take the whole seat including track. bring a T50 Torx bit to get the seat belt holder off also. there will be four bolts holding the track to the floor, two in front, two in back, move the seat all the way forward to get the back ones out. if its a power seat (it will be) theres gonna be a connector under the seat. just unclip it. if you want to make it a power seat in your truck. Pull the cord out as far as you can, and cut it after the clip. you'll need the extra wire.

Take the seats out first before you take the console out, its easier that way.

Open the center console, take everything out. in the bottom of the the center console, there will be four bolts holding the console to a bracket. take them out.
there will be about 6 bolts holding the bracket to the floor, you'll need those too.

INSTALL
if your reg cab, you need to cut the seat belt bracket. i'm not all to sure how that works, so you'll have to ask someone who does know.
It should be a direct bolt in as far as seats. i dunno if you have to drill your own holes for the console, you may have too.
just reverse procedure and you'll be set.
