Seat swap on 97 OBS????

I bought some seats that a guy had in his 94obs. He said it wasn't a direct swap, didn't think it would be that bad, but it'll take more work then I have time for right now, the mounts don't line up at all. Anyone know if there is more of a direct swap? Here is the seats that I got.

I would think they would bolt right in. If you want to get rid of them I may be interested.

I can assure you that they don't bolt right in, otherwise I would have done that, I just have too many projects right now to modify them to fit.

I don't think you'd be interested in them when you find out how much it cost to ship them to you from me.

You are right. But if you are located in the northeast or the midwest I may have a relative near you.

What kind of seats do you currently have, 40/20/40 or a bench?

Just by fabric and seat belt connectors, they look like they are out of a 97 up f-150.

I have a bench right now.

Why do I need fabric and seat belts?

yeah those are not obs seats, but you may be able to find a seat pan for a crew cab or reg cab and remove the mounts from that and use the obs mounts and you should come out fine i have 2nd gen explorer seats on 1st gen explorer tracks on an obs crew cab seat pan
