I was at the junkyard wasting time when I saw a Excursion stuffed in a corner. The seats are in less than fair shape, but some light cleaning should help them out a lot. Is it possible to put them in my OBS crewcab without major mods. I searched and there was I guy that sold his for his extended can cause of all the mods necessary.

They are a direct swap into a super duty, and people swap sd seats in obs trucks often, so I dont see why not

That's what I thought. They are 01 limited leather seats. And for only 150 for front and second row.

Not bad. I had limited ex seats and center console in my 2002 and loved em. I ran power wires to the seats so I had the function of the heated seats too, it was very nice in the winter

Mine has power lumbar, so ill just use that power for everything on the new seats. When I get around to reupholering them I'll be adding heaters. I think I'll be changing them from tan to black. I will be changing everything to black eventually. I really like how z281le did his.

I've start installing the rears this morning and let me just tell you. They are NOT bolt in. I put them in and lifted the bottom and marked the back holes for drilling. I'm going to be using some larger fat washers under the spots I drilled, hoping that will help them from ripping out in the event of a accident. The front holes are going to be a little trickier, they hang off the hump about a inch maybe 2. I think I might cut a little notch in them and bend them down.

I couldn't find any swapping writeups from a Excursion to Obs. But I did read two on SD to OBS seems like it won't be to hard. I hope.

Well like I said, excursions front seats swapped directly into my super duty, so the swap should be the same as a sd seat swap for you

If you use a OBS 40-20-40 seat pan they should be able to bolt to that

This is Very misleading. You are posting about swapping X seats into your SD but this is a OBS forum

I thought I clarified it pretty well. The o.p. wanted advice on swapping ex seats in his obs, I told him they were a direct swap to a sd, therefore they should swap into his obs the same as any other sd seats. Like I said, and you know, plenty of people swap sd seats into obs trucks,so all he has/had to do was look up a sd seat swap, and theoretically it should be the same

Thanks Brad, didn't know that about the tracks. I saw different ppl saying that they just drilled all new holes for the fronts. I have the backs bolted in. I'm going to do the fronts tonight.
