    As it says in the title i'm new to this. I just traded my car for a 1995 ford explorer xlt and was wondering if i could install a third row from another suv. Any information will be helpful. Thank you in advance.

    You'll have to craft something from the junkyard, I have some pics at home of the ones I've seen fitted during my junkyard travels.

    ...and have patience- you posted the question at 3:41 am...

    Also be aware you have to factor in the wheel wells. A regular 2nd row bench will not fit.

    I'm not sure if they measure up correctly, but take a look at the 3rd gen third row seats. It only adds 2 seats, but should compensate for the wheel wells.

    I looked through, and I can't find them. :(

    It was a 60-40 seat from a Ranger (just the 60 portion) mounted sideways against the passenger side wall of the rear compartment...

    Height?

    Remember the rear deck in your Explorer is a lot higher up than the rear seats are. You have to have some short passengers or people who don't mind hunching over.

    hmm..i didnt get an email notification..may have to fix that....anyways, I dont have it installed yet, its black cloth, which doesnt match our factory leather, and the seat back is short on this particular seat. I may modify it, or sell it and possibly look into one of these http://www.discountvantruck.com/suv3rdrowseats/explorer4runnertroopersuv3rdseats.htm (hope this is allowed mods??)
    or have a buddy fab up a bracket for the 3rd seat we had in our 94 trooper. That 3rd seat came out of the middle row of a ford windstar, reclines, so it made it easy to make comfortable for the kids...sorry no pics of that set-up either...the trooper went to hell before I got any further.
