Explorer Seats

I found some Explorer seats in the junk yard. I think from a '95. Re drilled the holes in the front of the brackets and reused the original studs, then drilled new holes in the back brackets and used new bolts. I ran power to both seats so all functions. The color matches perfectly with the factory console and trim.

Does anyone have any seat covers they could refer to me that will protect my leather from getting muddy and wet? I figured I'd want to cover my seats up before fishing season starts in april or duck season next fall for when I get in the truck and dont feel like taking my waders off?

Neoprene from Wet Okole or another manufacturer. Try sportsmansguide.com too they may have something a little cheaper.

Neoprene is the way to go for true waterproofing. Cabela's sells some stuff too I think.

Rear entry with Explorer seats

A question for those who have installed Explorer power seats. Were the seats from a four door explorer or and explorer sport? If they were from a four door explorer, do the seats slide forward far enough to make entry to the rear seat area easy? Do any of the explorer seats tilt forward.

After that pull the covers back over and install the new hog rings. While you're in there, tighten all bolts, especially the floor and track to seat bolts.
I did this not just cause' Iz cheap, but also because precious few other seats out there are as large or have armrests.
Dirt cheap, damned easy and darned effective. Sixlitre
Pics?

I know my limitations, I just don't know when to quit.

Not sure what model mine were from, but tilting the seat forward and scooting it up all the way allows fairly easy access to the back from the passenger side. My driver's seat tilt lever is broke, so I haven't been able to test that side, but my old seats didn't tilt far enough either, so I never had anyone getting in on that side.

Also, I removed my center console, so it's really easy to just climb over the front seat and crawl through the middle.

My F250 seats had a small limiting strap on each seat bracket. Once I removed it both seats slid all the way to the dash and steering wheel respectively. I don't know if I got any pics or not. Look on your brackets and see if there is one. I havent had any probs since takin it off, so I don't really know its purpose

Does anyone know where you can buy Replacment foam and OEM fabric. I would like to replace the foam and the fabric on my drivers seat. I spent the last hour searching on the internet and came up empty.

My seats are from a 4 door. they do go forward enough (along with pulling the recline forward) to make entry/exit work. I'll post a pic if you want. However, my kids are impatient because it takes about 5-6 seconds to power slide them forward, so they just climb in and cut through the middle.

I've noticed that everyone with factory seats, only has armrests on the inner side of the seat. What years had them on both sides of the seat? My '80 had em...they were sooooo comfy!

seat recline

Can't get either of the seats to stay upright. Mine has a very slight recline but the passenger seat goes almost all the way back when someone is sitting there. Can't figure out the spring on either side of it. Chilton's doesn't have anything to say. Anything I can do without getting new seats?

I put a set of Subaru WRX seats in mine. Got the pair at a end of the year swap meet for $170

Thosehave been in there for about a year and a half and no wear yet. I think the first thing to go will be the driverside butt boulster from getting in and out.

Weld em up solid in the most comfy position for you and wait for em to break and buy different seats anyway. It's what I did. Of course you lose some access to the backseat that way.
