Subject: FTE Small - Ranger rear seat belts

I have a '98 Ranger Supercab (4-door model). I took out the rear jump seats (real easy job) since they're pretty useless. However, the male end of the seatbelt is not attached to the jump seat -- rather it is attached directly to the back door. Does anyone know how easy/difficult it will be to take it out? How big of a job is it to remove the plastic on the back door door (I guess I'd have to pry it off, I don't see any fasteners) and remove the seat belt mechanism.

A good example of bad information from who? Me?? Hypertech??
I'm confused, so I don't know whether to be mad or agree.

Useless? I take it you don't have small children. I find that it is pretty
comfy back there for one normal size adult to ride also.

Not very big, but not useless.

My two cents worth,

>From my own experience,
Superchips (or any good chip
programmer) DO work. I have
personally installed several
and have seen improvement in
both rear wheel horsepower and
track times. (dynoed at
Rockwell Engineering, Hayward,
CA & Sears Point International
Raceway) I do admit, they
adjust shifts points, but also
re-map timing, advance & fuel
delivery curves, and top speed
limits. In late 80's
Superchips was one of the few
shops doing chips for BMW's,
so we installed quite a number
in our customers cars. Now
chips are available from
dozens of manufactures, some
good, some bad. SO as always,
buyer beware. I also agree
with the post that suggested
doing your modifications
first, then having a chip
custom burned. Even Superchips
posts this on there web site.
The few intake modifications
I've done to my truck have
helped. The general consensus
is that most Rangers benefit
greatly from intake and
exhaust modifications.
