seat interchangeability

Does anyone know if later model 1997+ F-series front seats are a direct replacement for the bronco seats? I have the low back seats and no arm rest in my rig and I'd like to get something with a head rest and arm rest.

I believe the '96 and earlier stuff will work. High backs with armrest were an option for Bronco's and that's what I replaced my low backs with.

Installation Info & pic (Explorer) in an 89; "Hardest part was drilling the holes and leveling the seats so there was no binding; Only one hole lined up for me, so I had to drill the other three. I did bend the front bracket a little to get it to contour a little better to the floor. Also, I would attach the front two bolts first, then drill the rear and shim level as needed. Other than that, it was pretty simple. I also put in a separate fuse block for the seats and my CB so I didn't have to run too much wire or tap into another source. 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. At least with my electric Explorer seats, there was no easy way to unbolt just the floor brackets and keep the motors and such intact..."

Installation Info & pics (300Z) in a 95; "... I swapped my torn up leather seats today for some 300Z seats. ($200.00 on Craigslist). I swapped out the tracks and the seat bases allowed 3 out of 4 holes to be drilled and bolted, but on the back corner I had to make a bracket. Driver side was power and I had to remove 2 of the three motors to make it work (Back and forth and up and down.) It took a good hour to figure out the driver seat rewire, but ultimately I was able to plug it into the lumbar air power source from my old seat after splicing the connector and some of the remaining wiring. Had to cut away some of the metal underneath to allow the tracks to fit properly, but it worked out very well I think and is a very neat installation. Seats sit about an inch lower than the originals, but feel awesome..." must register to view pics

Source: by American Thunder at fte
Installation Info (Aerostar) in an 88: "...the top of the tall Aerostar seat limits the upward movement of the bracket for rear occupant access, as shown. There are four bolts on each seat that remove the brackets from the seats. Obviously it is much easier to remove the seat and bracket from the floor as one unit. Then after turning the seat and bracket over on the tailgate, you can then seperate the bracket and seat with four bolts one at each corner. You will have to adjust the bracket while on the seat to remove the last two bolts. Then reinstall in reverse order.... " pics are gone from his SM site

Installation Info (Celica) in an 85; "...the brackets were cake. the bottom of the Celica seats are flat and no weird curves or lumps (except for a spring on the pass seat which i relocated). i just welded 2 steel plate across from one rail to the other, then drilled holes so it could bolt onto the stock seat brackets. reason i used the stock brackets because they were flat on top and made it easier to install also i was cheap. Now since i'm using the stock seat brackets the pass side could tilt and slide and if i needed more room i can tilt the whole seat. i have like enough room to fit a tire through the door..." see Chris's SM site for the pics

Cut the hog rings and remove the seat bottom covers. Cut the center piece for foam, then the side bolsters, spray them and the original seat foam, wait 4 minutes and stick em on. 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.

The mounting points for the bench are there under the carpet and they are plugged with rubber grommets. You do not have to tapped the holes either, the bolts that hold the buckets in place are self tapping, and they go in rather easy. The mounting points are made up of metal sleeves that are not threaded if never used and the self tapping bolts are easy to install. Just swap over the rubber plugs from the bench locations to the bucket locations and you are set. You also use the same seat belt locations and you are going to have to use the seat belts from the bench. The belt plastic sleeves are molded differently, and will not point in the right direction.

Jump Seat pics; "...I've seen at least 3 Broncos (not including mine) with these same seats in them (with belts), so I assume it was a rare factory or dealer option.

Remember that the passengers need some legroom, so measure from the back of the FRONT seats to the back of the BACK seat, and that's how much room you'd need for another fullsize row. You could afford to lose some of the legroom, but not much. Whatever you put back there: take a look under your bed to see how the original seats are mounted (i.e., how the floor is reinforced), and do something similar for your new seats.

I'm really starting to LOVE the copy paste junk that keeps showing up recently. I can click on a link but information like this is really not useful at all to people.

how is this going to help me AT ALL?

Bronco Info: 89 BKO 97 PSD 80 Deuce 'n a Half
I swapped in 40/20/40 SD seats. No where near a direct fit, but not a hard swap at all. I just had to bend a few brackets, cut a notch in one, beat down a hump in the floorboard, an I used some 1/8" plate for a spacer on a couple of legs. Simple stuff, and it turned out great!

Just cause its not help full for you does not mean its the same for everyone else.
miesk5 has done a lot of work to compile all the info he has on his site what do you do here on a daily basis to help ppl??

He post the link and then paste whats in the link for an overview. If you click the link you can then go to every sub link. Im sure if you like he will not post anything in your post for ya.

I am going to buy a 40/20/40 front seat out of a 1999 Ford F-150 KingCab. I am hoping they go in without too much trouble. Anyone try that year yet? I am hoping for minor work to get them in.

yo Larry,
Thanks.
I see this at times.
Some won't even bother to click a Ford EVTM Pin-Point Test Hot Link because they want to see the simple answer, as in,"kick the driver's side tire and it will work"

Others want to see the pic in full blown-up view despite it chewing up band width

Others can't read.

Be well!
