Hmmm well this applies to the newer trucks, but I'll cut and paste it for ya anyways. The important thing is to make sure that the seat tracks that you get fit on your floor pans, and that you get the tracks for the same body style (reg. cab vs. extended cab). I've got seats from an '86 SVO in my truck, my split bench tracks bolted right up to them...

Hope this helps:

In Reply to: bucket seats: list of what will work? posted by Jerad on June 08, 1998 at 12:54:21:

Tempo/Topaz, All years. Tempo GT's are nicest
tilting "pillow" headrest and frequently power lumbar.

Escort/Lynx 81-91? GT's again the nicest,
"Halo" style headrest, sometimes power lumbar.

Mustang, Don't bother looking they will be gone when you get there.
But if you're a lucky person look for Mustang GT's
Also halo style headrests on GTs

Thunderbird 82-88, Turbocoupe has nicest seats same as Mustang GT but
with tilting "pillow" head rests, almost always power-lumbar,
adjustable thigh support, adjustable side bolsters on base.
the best factory ford seat(IMHO)

All of these will bolt directly to your factory tracks if you have
either Buckets or split-bench.
If you have a conventional bench then you will need to replace your
tracks with split-bench/bucket-seat tracks.
(Toss your solid bench tracks they are compleatly different)

You will have to run a Tap through some pre drilled holes in
the bottom of the seat frames. the holes are already there but
unthreaded.

If you have a conventional cab Ranger you will probably have to
use the "halo" style headrest used in Mustangs and Escort GT
models, as the pillow style will hit the rear window.
this forces the seat back into a very upright position.
(and is EXTREEMLY uncomfortable)

If you have a supercab Ranger or a Bronco2 headrest clearance isn't an issue.

One other word of warning Ranger Standard-cab, Ranger Supercab and
Bronco2's all have different floor pan profiles and so use different seat tracks,

So if you want to put buckets or a split-bench into a std cab Ranger you must get
your seat tracks out of a std cab Ranger.

Hey no sweat man, I saved that list from FordRanger.com a long time ago and I just cut-and-paste it whenever anyone asks for a good list or info about swapping buckets into their truck. The best thing would be to buy a set of ranger split bench tracks, make sure they fit, then go from there. Let us know how it all turns out!
