I'm trying to replace an uncomfortable driver seat in my 2003 Ranger Edge, Standard Cab. I'm willing to pay a couple hundred for a nice racing seat, but I'm having a hard time finding brackets for the 03 Standard Cab.
Here's a link for Scat Procar seat brackets, and they only show as compatible up to 2001 for this size cab.

Also Corbeau only goes up to 2001

I measured the brackets, and they were pretty odd shaped.
The inner side seemed about 3/4 inch shorter than the outer side, and even the position of the front bolts (both at an angle) were slightly (1/4 inch) different on each side on the angled plane. Looks like a rather un-generic layout... which may explain why the bracket isn't made.
Does anyone know of an aftermarket seat that has a bracket to match 2003 Edge Standard Cab?

Otherwise, I guess the thing that folks do is fit the original bracket to the new seat. So if I'm lucky, I can detach the slider off the original seats and bolt them (perhaps new holes will need to be drilled) to the new seat?

I think this is what everyone does with all year Rangers, given a few exceptions.

I went the easy route and bought my buckets from a junkyard which I KNEW would bolt to factory brackets. Takes all the hassle out.

Drill holes to adapt the new seats if need be. If it still doesnt work, hell, weld the damn things together lol
