I got them off ebay from a vendor. Here's a link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Point-Retractable-High-Strength-Car-SUV-Seatbelt-Safety-Seat-Belt-USA-Shipping/362688037949?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649Backtracking a sec to your seatbelt repair. Where did you get them from again? Did they come with any safety certification or spec? Would you say they felt like normal belt material, no quality concerns or anything?
The original rear seats are long gone (went in the blue Raider to the scrapper). In any case, they wouldn't work, because any rear seats have to be accessed through the back door, since both front seats are now on the bouncy bases (which don't tilt forward), so using the original rear bench the passengers would basically have to climb over it from behind. Plus, that rear bench is heavy and takes up a lot of space. The OEM seatbelts were no better than wearing a ratchet strap....none of them locked any more or had any retractor tension, hence why I replaced the fronts.Either on here or grassroots, you mentioned wanting jump seats for the back. Why jump seats? Do you still have the rear seat that came in one of the raiders? That would seem like an easier solution, and you could still have seatbelts for your rear passengers.
Just curious on your reasoning for going the route you are choosing.
Yeah, I checked those out last time at the junkyard - but they seem like they'd require a lot of creativity to mount where they'd need to be in the Raider - they look like they mount into an L-shaped panel intersection on the Ranger rather than to a flat area. It's an option since they're pretty easy to find, though.you could look into later 3rd gen ford ranger rear jump seat, they fold out of the way when not in use.
If you have pics/measurements (and asking price) of both, I could be interested - feel free to shoot me a PM. My recollection is that the Gen1 4-door jumpseat is a pretty long "bench," isn't it? I wonder if it's short enough to fit where I'd need to put it.I have a small pickup jump seat in the basement. It's been so long ago that I don't remember the truck it came from. I'd be happy to find it a new home.
I also have a pair Gen 1 4dr jump seats. I had these shipped from England. It's possible that they would fit on the wheel well of a 2dr. At least that's where they are in a 4dr.
