What seats are a direct bolt in for 95 f350???

I know it's dumb and I searched!

What years bolt in??? Reason is the bench in the truck sucks, I would prefer buckets with the center seat... I see that 92-97 f series will fit/ bolt up. Anything else a direct fit???

seats from a 95 will for sure

I actually dont have an answer for you but I have been wondering this myself, I've been wanting to throw seats from a 97-03 f150 in my 93 but I haven't actually looked to see how it would mount up yet, Im sure any seat could be set up relaatively easy

I was going to look at mounting Explorer seats on my F350 seat bracket. There are always tons of Explorers in the junk yards.

Sorry, no useful info for you.

Well 3 out of 4 post contain a

Is this a sign?

Yah... I was looking for some 95-ish 40-20-40's to bolt in, but my craigslist is only getting newer seats available right now.

Might have to break out the drill and grinder

Oh, and

just my opinion, i absolutely HATE the seats in my '94 explorer maybe they got better in later years i don't know. with this explorer the seats have 119,000 miles on them fabric is in great shape, but when i sit in them for over an hour i can feel a bar that goes across the lumbar area of my back through the seat. it feels annoying on the highway and is torture offroad. it doesn't seem to bother my wife, but she is half my size. i weigh in at 260.

just some food for thought if you are in a similar situation JTR.

If you are looking for direct bolt in you need to find complete setup from same truck configuration. Meaning if you have regular cab pickup with a bench and you want two buckets with center console you need seat bracket setup from the cab truck for two buckets with console, ext cab and bronco buckets and console take different brackets.

Yah, I'm not sure I follow....

The brackets are absolutely different. Maybe he thinks I just want to unbolt from the bracket and then bolt new up to the existing???

I would just get the seats bracket and all... I am sure there may be an extra hole, but the cab would most likely hav that there already?

Hmmm... Maybe I can just get the old bench re-upholstered and some new padding to help make it comfy again.

I know I put some bucket seats out of a Trans Am in my ranger by just swithcing the tracks. All of the holes lined up. So you could just put your tracks on another seat that you like?

The studs in the floor are deffrent. When I did my cab swap on my 94 f250 my old cab had buckets with a center console. My new cab had a bench and my buckets didn't line up with any if the studs. I had to drill (and I put plate in on the bottomside) for all the holes.

ext cabs and broncos have a different floor pan. seats will not bolt in out of them if you have a reg or crew cab. now, on crew cabs, the front and rear seats are the same. so find a crew cab with 4 buckets. back seats will be like new.

You need the seats out of the same cab style, same body 'era'. So, 91-96? It has to be the same cab style as what you have now.

I have bronco seats in my 95 (thanks, previous owner), and the holes don't line up. At all. I ended up hacking some spacers to pick the back of the seat up so it's more comfortable to sit in. Had to make my own weight distrobustion spreading nuts for the bolts and everything

I would grab seats you think are comfortable, and adapt them to your truck. Since you havea bench, it's kind of a PITA, unless you can score the tracks from a 95 w/ the 40/20/40 seats.

OK... so as luck would have it a buddy with a reg cab 1994 F150 is going to give me his 40/20/40 set up with fold down console.! Now just to be sure... my 95 F350 with a reg cab and the bench seat should be a direct swap, right???



I am going to check it out in the am, but if it don't work I am just gonna keep the bench and get it re-padded. I am not opposed to doing whatever to get seats in, just don't have the time to waste onit right now... gotta be on the road!

So hopefully they just bolt up! (fingers crossed). Can anyone verify they match up?

That sounds like it should fit. Take a tape measure and doublecheck if you want to be on the safe side. If the factory body nut-serts aren't fucked up, you should only need a 10 or 12mm socket and about 30 minutes.

Okay... really basic swap and straight to the point. Just replace "in kind" by removing 4 bolts and installing new to me seats.

I had to literally clean the bejeezus out of the 40/20/40 set up... they were absolutely grimey man! Not to bad on the finish results though. Some of the trim pieces need to be glued/ fixed, but they will do.

Old bench and new 40/20/40 combo.

Did you have to drill any holes or was it bolt-in?

Nope! Direct fit. Everything lined up.... both were reg cabs, both had a 4 bolt bracket. The seat belts holes were also the same and they needed to be unbolted also because on the 40/20/40 they were attached to the buckets with atiny bracket.

All went smooth ike you said, about 30-40 minutes... maybe an hour if you include beer time.

No rips and yhey did clean up ok.. not quite mint. Some of plastic pieces needed glue and I had to freaking scrub smokey stuff off em! . The passenger lumbar works.. the driver side is a big no. Is there a way to fix it? The motor revs on the little compressor.... rhe bladder must be broken though.

Kind of a hyjack, but to those thinking about doing this, you do loose a little bit of leg room. I did this exact swap in my 92.
