You can put just about any seats in if your not scared to drill holes and make spacer blocks as needed.

I installed leather Lariat SD seats in my 95 F350 CC. The rear was pretty simple. Put the seat in place, marked new holes and drill. The front SD seat brackets required a little grinding, bending, and also drilling new holes. My sister needed to borrow my car so I haven't had time to fit the new front SD seat brackets yet so I just mounted them to the OBS 40/20/40 mounting bracket. I had to drill new holes in the seat pans to match the OBS mounting bracket. Not too big of a hassle. The only pic I have right now is this krappy phone pic.

One thing to watch for on the 99 explorer seats is that if the recall wasn't done on them, the bolt that goes through the recliner mechanism into the seat back can break. Just to forewarn you however I wouldn't worry about it until it breaks. I've only seen one break, I've seen more windstar seat backs break.
