I will pay handsomely for a pair of bucket seats for my 2011 ford explorer or a second row center console. I will pay ridiculous money for this or these things. I'm desperate cause my wife is flipping that I got a bence seat in the second row. Pls help my email address is reginijr@aol.com I don't care the color just need the goods I can always change fabric. Remember bigggggg $$$$

have you looked at just trading it in for a new 2013 or selling your 2011/2012 and buying another 2011/2012 with the rear buckets?

I'm not sure how much you want to spend, but it may be more feasible than trying to retrofit the bucket seats yourself.

If you are set on retrofiting the seats and console yourself, have you priced it out on www.fordparts.com ? I'm guessing the console is probably aroun 500-800 on fordparts.

I would search junk yards across your state and surrounding states. I think the bigger salvage yards are now computerized and have an inventory database that they can search.

Otherwise just order the seats from the dealer. If your willing to spend big money and reupholster, the pricing at the dealer might work.

Search for a dealer online that sells Ford parts over the Internet, they are way cheaper.

I have heard the console is a pain to order/get through the parts department but maybe that has changed now?

Make your wife sit in the second row bench seat until she finally gets use to it and shuts up. May be cheaper to just get a new wife, do an internet search, a new wife is probably cheaper online.

dude, i'm sure none of us truly have the best wife in the universe, but if you're getting that much grief over bucket seats vs bench seats, you have a lot more problems then you think......

It's Valentine's Day in 3 days, so I was going to suggest "date night" for you and Mrs. Regini. Back seat. Just saying.;)

Better not swap out the seats before that. Buckets can be (I mean, could be) more difficult than a bench in that scenario.:D
