I just purchased a 3rd row seat for my 1998 expedition xlt, but it won't fit... there are no brackets to mount it into place, can I install them?
What do I need to purchase?

I tried that on my Expedition but the floorpan on the rear is different with the 3rd row seat option.

There is a way to install a 3rd row seat in your Expedition. I actually manufacture brackets that can be installed in the floor board that allow you to mount an OEM Ford 3rd row seat. Here is the link to my web site for the Ford Brackets

If you have any questions feel free to give me a call.

ihave the same problem im thinking of going to junk yard and cutting out the backets, then cut out the four holes on my expo for the backets so they fit into place. and attach four screws to each bracket and then weld them for extr strenght for more safty. mine is a 2000 xlt and i tought it should have it as it is a newer model than 98 but i guess not. ill try it and post my finish pruduct to see how it went....

the bracket he sells are for an after market seat, if you have an expedition seat it won't work.

I just got my step sister's 1998 Ford Expedition XLT. Only problem, no 3rd row. There are no mounting brackets or seat belts. If I pick up a 3rd row from junk yard, how can I fix the mounting and seat belt issue?
