Seems like you could move the engine back into the front seat area and put your new seat in the back of the extended cab....lol.....

Cool project!

the back of the motor will be about 12" behind the fire wall that is in it now and new fire wall will be even with the front of the door opening that will put the seat close to the back of the cab this is the reason I was set on the ex cab ranger with the back doors it should be fairly easy to get in and out thats the plains right now anyway.
