Are there any options out there that will allow me to gain a couple of inches in height in my 2008 Ranger's drivers seat?

Will a MK 3 Mondeo drivers seat fit, or a drivers seat from a 2001 Transit.

I'm 6' 5" and all legs and a couple of inches might help ease the pain of driving for 4 hours a day (2 morning and evening)

Normally, the seat mounting bolts poke out the bottom of the car. If this is the case, the best option (which avoids seat electrics issues) would be to make a spacer and get some longer bolts. Some box section like 50mm x 30mm x 3mm wall would probably be suitable.

The longer bolts should really be of the same grade, which is often stamped into the head. (10.8 or 12.9 etc). Measure the thread length from the end of the thread to the underside of the head, then add 50mm to it.
