Hi everyone! Local Ranger Gal here
I was curious, has anyone ever done racing seats in the Ranger? I am looking at some comfy looking Cipher or NRG seats. Able to use a 4 or 5 point harness with.
I know you can buy the brackets, but I don't want to buy $600 seats an it not work and be stuck with them. (Custom made to order).
Anyone have any brands or links? Or know of any that are a definite fit?
I have the XLT Standard Cab. I am 5'2" so seats size are not super pressing, as I am tiny.
You'll want the sliders too, regardless of the std cab or not, trust me and they're usually separate from the brackets by most manufactures of the brackets. Unfortunately your height has more to do with what rides you can get on at DisneyWorld than a truck seat in reality but there are long term considerations to a bucket [fixed race seat] vs a reclineable bucket [race seat]. A quick look at anything from Corbeau, Bride, or Sparco will net you a quick lesson if not already by the brand you mentioned. Spend the few extra dollars for a reclinable.
As mentioned, and since you're not engaging in any 3 digit speeds nor serious rock crawling antics, 5 points even for just the driver side are unnecessary. Dual 4 points are more than enough and even then any passengers will hate you after a few ride shares and obviously you won't be doing Uber or Lyft. It does get old after a couple weeks to a month. #fastcarproblems
I have the factory Ranger sport bucket seats in my 2000 Ranger.
I think those are the standard buckets to be honest. The Sport seats have a under the thigh cushion that's adjustable and a separate part of the seat itself for comfort. And in everything from my own to BMW and Mercedes Benz I've been exposed to those were what made the vehicle a "Sport Pkg" by trim when ordering a vehicle. Still nice seats, but I would have to disagree that their the Sport seats, at least not the same as the 93-97 to which I have a pair of 94' and the ones above would honestly be a bit of an in-between from what I think is a true Sport Seat and a cloth 60/40 bench seat.
that smaller cushion is adjustable.
