Does anyone know if the transmission has anything to do with the fitment of the seats. I am planning on putting a 40/20/40 seat into my 93 supercab with Mazda 5 speed and want to make sure. Just from searching google, I cant find any pictures of a manual extended cab with a 40/20/40 seat in it, all with this combo seem to be straight cabs.

For the supercab you need the tracks and brackets from a bronco with the 40/20/40.

WRONG!! Bronco NEVER came with a 40-20-40

wfilkins47, the transmission has Nothing to do with seat fitment. ONLY the cab does. You need the seat and brackets from a SUPERCAB. A reg cab and Crew cab are different

WRONG again. Reg cab and crew cabs use the same bolt pattern(80-97)
But the front seat from a crew cab does NOT tilt forward, it needs to be modified to do so

Supercab is different

Bronco is different as well

Sorry, bad day and not a lot of tolerance left for......................

Seems to me you were partially right. Are seat it self will fit they all have the same 4bolt size that bolts then to the rails. It's the rails that vary along with the tilt on the seats crew cab doesn't tilt as brad said

Hell even seats out of the explorers/rangers will bolt to the f150 seat rails

I've thought about doing the same swap in my 88 with a 94-98 dodge full size truck split bench. We used to have a truck with these in it and it was very comfy. It's just hard to find a truck this body style with the red interior I need so it'll match my trucks interior.

Has anyone ever done this?

Thats what I thought, although its weird I cant find an extended cab manual with the 40/20/40, thought maybe the floor pan was different.

On another note, for anyone that has mounted the "separately tracked" supercab seats, is there an indent or something in the floor pan which indicates where the holes should be drilled to mount them? Thanks again for everyone's help.

Only difference in the tranny hump is the hole for the shifter and the hump it typically bolted to the floor to allow access to top of tranny where a. Auto the floor is solid Seats are same in auto/manual

For the holes bolt the outside in and then drill the passenger and bolt in

I'm not sure how new you could go but up to 97 before the body style changed should bolt right in. Not sure about newer then that tho

Here's the 96 explorer seats in my old 96 f150

There's a special bracket that the 20 seat mounts to. It actually goes from the inside bolts for the 40 seats and the 20 section mounts to it.
