    As much as I thought of keeping my low mileage 2009 Ranger totally stock, the itch has hit and I gotta scratch it.

    Ford Focus Seat Swap

    Just wondering (for future reference) if anyone of you has swapped or looking at swapping a set of seats from a Ford Focus. Specifically looking at the Focus up graded Recaro seats. If the seat frames from the Focus seats unbolt from the seat, it doesn't look like it would take a lot to adapt...
