It sure is possible. You will need to be handy with a wrench, though.
If you go to your local junkyard and get hold of some upgraded seats from
another Ranger (Or Mazda B2300, B2500, B3000, B4000 - the models after
Mazda started rebadging Fords) just make sure you get the mounting brackets
with them. You will need to locate the mounting points for the seats in
your truck, and they may be hidden underneath the rubber mat or carpet.
These may simply be holes which you will have to feed a bolt through. If
you get to pull your own parts from a junked truck you will better be able
to install them in your own. Of course, then you have the hassle of
disposing of the bench seat.
Hope this helps. Have fun!
Already had that idea in mind. ;) A Local hobby shop has a front seat, and
a rear bench seat from an old Dodge caravan. Good thing its vinyl, cuz
the way i get drunk....it should be easy to clean off. haha....
Probably any F-Series, though I'm not familiar with the floorpan of the
You may be able to take the front seats out of an Expedition. Heck, why not
go for the Lincoln Navigator? I've seen custom jobs where guys have put the
Navigator front clip on an F150. I think the mounting points are the same.
It may be like my Mustang. A wide variety of seats will fit, but the
brackets are the problem. But the brackets can be taken off the stock
seats and bolted onto the replacements and that works fine. I have a
65 and seats at least as late as 2001 work this way. I also know other
people who have the seats of out Celica's, etc, and they also work the
same way. So, perhaps you can find the seats you want, and separately
find the correct brackets if needed. Need to measure the mounting hole
separation on the floor pan. Just a thought which might apply.
