I put the seats from an 87 Fiero se into my 95. I'm loving how comfy they are, but my legs barely fit under the steering wheel, and I don't have tilt. I was looking at the Ranger 60/40 swap, but was wondering if someone who has done that swap could measure from the floor to the top of the front of the seat on the driver's side, with the seat all the way forward.

These Fiero seats are comfy, but after doing all the hard work (getting the risers out, and the bolts off of the old seats) I can't help but feel that I can do better, and the Ranger bench looks pretty cool.

I do, and I don't think switching to a smaller one would be feasible, as I don't have power steering. Unless of course installing power steering would be cheap/ easy as well...

Those look comfy. Well.. anything is comfy after looking at my drivers seat.

How much did those run you and were they a direct bolt in?

I just finished swapping in some seats for an '06 grand prix and it did require some fabrication. first off the nuts on the bottom of the donor seats were tack welded in 3 spots on each nut with a tig. i was unable to cut those free and the impact wrench only broke the weld on the stud, so they spun. i ended up cutting off all the brackets and studs flush. this allowed me to weld some new 5/16" bolts onto the bottom and mount up the yj brackets. since the old bolts on the donor seats held some of the reinforcing plates in place, i had to carefully weld them to the thin sheet metal near the front of the seat and on the 1/8" at the rear. this is best done while the studs are still holding everything together.

also, cutting some of the fabric off the rear of the seat will allow room for the tracks to move back when you slid the seat back for the long legged folks. it's easier done before you install them in the vehicle.

The seats off more lumbar and side support than the factory seats. the side support is really ideal and the lumbar is just a nice step up.

In hindsight, i would have moved the seats 1" to the outside to allow for the wider console. the seat belt on the gets caught between the seat and console every time you lift the seat forward. it is not easy to get it back to a usable position.

if you leave the plastic trim on the sides of the new seats, you'll need to trim the passenger side to allow for the seat lift handle to operate. it's quick and easy to do so with any cutting tool.

Tip: Don't forget to cover your seats while welding and grinding. I thought having them upside down would be just fine but sparks still found their way to places i'd rather not have melted. And keep some water handy for the foam when it catches fire.

this pic is of the seat while still installing. it is dirty but bolted up to the frame and set into it's spot.

Before i got my cavalier seats, i was running bucket seats out of a 97 chevy s10. They too were direct bolt in.

I used to have that list saved to my favorites, but now i just get redirected to the main page. Any way of seeing that list? . Ive read someone putting the two outside pieces of the middle bench of a 02-05 explorer/mountaineer into the rear of a yj, and ive read that ranger front benches fit. I found an 02 mountaineer with black leather interior and i was hoping to find out if anyone has put the front seats out of a mountaineer or explorer in? I'd love to have a matching set of black leather seats in my all black jeep
