I just inherited a 2005 Ford Explorer from a close friend who died last year. We were like brothers and I was the one who found him when he passed unexpectedly.

He was a BIG man (6'5" and 500 pounds) so the drivers seat is toast. It's not just the cushions, I'm pretty sure the seat frame is bent.

My question is whether there is any other seat besides a 3rd generation Explorer (2002-2005) that will fit as a direct bolt up. Will any later models fit?

He loved this car and I want to fix it up and keep it on the road as a memorial to my friend.

I also have to repair both backseat windows as he had just taped them over when the glass fell out of the channel. I assume the lift motors need replacing. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Dad was a mechanic so I have a full set of tools and pretty good aptitude.

Thank you so much for your help!

That will certainly make the search easier as there will be more seats to choose from. Perhaps better condition, too.

Many thanks!
