xl model lack of storage

As the title says, I have a single cab xl model and am pretty annoyed with the absolute lack of storage in the cab. It has the standard bench seat and of course there's no pockets in the doors or even a cup holder anywhere .
Could the fine folks here provide a few budget friendly suggestions (other than getting rid of the truck) to add some sort of cup holder and storage to the cab? Would it be terribly difficult to install bucket seats and a console in the middle or would that require a good deal of fab/modification ?

Buckets and a console should bolt straight in.

Think I could get away with some from a mid 90's 150? Seen a lot more of those at the local pick and pulls than 250/350's.

Yep, the OBS trucks 150-350 are the same body.

Awesome. Yeah, I always thought they were exactly the same but never saw em side by side to confirm it. Now I just gotta find a truck that isn't completely trashed inside and I'm in business.

The buckets bolt up different then the bench seat. I think 1 or 2 of the bolts lined up if that. I just sold a buddy of mine some buckets out of a parts truck and it didnt bolt up and the bench didnt fit back in the parts truck so who knows I figured they would be the same as well

lame. Well thanks for the info. I wouldn't have been a happy camper if I went to all that trouble and it didn't work.

You just gotta drill some holes and use a nut and bolt. Not too much of a pita

Custom fitting seats ain't hard. I have seats from an 05 ranger in my 89 ranger. 1 bolt on each side lined up. The brackets had to be bent a bit and new holes drilled, also had to shim them up with some washers to get them level. But they look nice and are way more comfortable. And i got a center console too.

Ok, I'll give it a try then. I've just never messed with anything interior before so I was a bit rattled by the thought of screwing it up.
