Whether you have an uncomfortable bench seat or your seats are just worn and torn, replacing the seats in your Ford Super Duty with new take outs or lightly used seats from a newer model truck is a great way to update your truck and make it more comfortable. 1999 - 2010 Seats are directly compatible. Today we are going to replace the seat in a 2005 model with a 40/20/40 seat from a 2013 Super Duty. With very light modification any seat up to 2014 will fit any truck back to 1999 with light modification.

  1. Before shot of bench seat in a 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty.  Removal of the seat requires an 18mm socket.  Preferably a deep wall socket and a T60 Torx Bit w/ratchet or impact wrench.

  2. Adjust the seat as far back as you can.  Using an 18mm deep wall socket, remove the bolts on the front that attachs the seat to the floor.  On my bench seat there were only two bolts.  If you have a 60/40 seat or bucket seats there will be more. Adjust the seat as far back as you can.

    • You may now remove the old seat from the truck. if you have a bench seat like in this guide, you will need someone to help.

  7. Next, if your truck was only using the outter body holes you will need to locate the two close to the transmission tunnel.  You can press your finger in the center and locate the opening.  Take a razor knife and gently cut an X over the hole.  Gently remove each of the triangle shaped tabs exposing the additional hole.  Repeat on opposite side.

  8. Next place your jump seat in the middle on top of the transmission tunnel.  The rear holes will line up with two of the existing holes where the seat belts were attached. Place two bolts in the holes but don't tighten completely.  Lift the bottom seat up exposing the two bolt holes in the bottom of the jump seat.

  9. Now mark and drill two holes in the transmission tunnel.  Carefully check what is below the tunnel to make sure you don't damage wiring or other system that may be run along the path.  This is best done with one person drilling and one person watching underneath.  These are the only holes you must drill for 2011 to 2014 seats to fit.

  10. Notice the jump seat is a little lower than the buckets.  Place your buckets in temporarily and use washers or other spacers between the floor and jump seat frame to adjust the jump seat to the same level as the buckets.

  11. Place your bucket seats in the truck.  You should be able to line up all 4 holes in the seat frame with a hole in the truck body.  You may use the same bolts you removed from the old seat to bolt the new seats down.  Replace the plastic bolt covers on the new bucket seats. Place your bucket seats in the truck.

  12. In my case the seat belt buzzer on the new seat didn't match the vehicle plug.  Simply remove the seat belt receiver from the side of the seat with a T60 Torq bit and re-attach your old seat belt receiver to the floor bolt.  Using the old seat belt receiver gives you the proper connector and allows the buzzer to work properly. In my case the seat belt buzzer on the new seat didn't match the vehicle plug.

Thanks Keith. Your staff was very helpful and the seats look awesome! I would recommend your company to anyone! Keep up the good work.

I see that your truck is the extended cab, will this work a single cab? I have the same year truck as a work truck but the bench seat is really uncomfortable on long trips. I would love that jump seat specially since it also works as a center console.

From my understanding the front seat is the same regardless if it is a single cab, extended cab, or 4 door. If you will contact the good folks at http://www.oemcarandtruckseats.com/ I believe they can definitely answer your question. I can tell you this, if you change your bench seat out for the buckets with the jump seat it will be a 150% improvement in comfort.

I know this was posted two years ago early 2015. Do you know if a 2016 seat will fit?
