Question F150 Seat Replacement

Hi Everyone,
I'm new to this forum and have found alot of great information here.
I just purchased a 1993 F150 2WD Reg Cab. It is an XL model and is in great shape.
I want to replace the bench seat with one from an XLT because I want to have the armrest.
Will the seat from a newer model fit right in or will modifications be needed?
Thanx in advance for any information on this.
Have a Great Day!

If the seat is from the same body style (80-96 7 ) The floors are same and will bolt up
Any from 92 up should match your interior great . Good luck

If you go newer that 1996 take careful measurements because the seats are wider and you will probably interfere with your door handles.

Finding seat in good condition is the trick. I adapted power leather buckets out of a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and dropped a F250 console between them.

Did it all with an angle grinder, drill & hand tools by fabricating adaptor plates out of 1/4" aluminium plate. It can be done without welding.

Measure, measure and measure again.

I put the buckets and console from an '86 camaro into an '80 malibu that way. That was no easy feat. I even made the shifter from the camaro work in the 'bu. Luckily the 2004r and 700r4 use the same shift lever and I was able to swap them. It can be done.

I replaced my old bench with these, they have a good selection, prices aren't bad and are very comfy also gives you some extra storage as well

Thanx for the info guys. New seats are nice but way out of my price range. I guess I'll have to cruise the junk yards more often to find something that will bolt right in.
