If it's a second gen it should fit.

expert opinion here.

Have done it in both a single cab and an ext cab.

If it is from a single cab into a single cab yes, same with ext cab. you cannot easily (direct swap) from a single to and an ext cab.

This is not the answer you are looking for, but I would keep searching for the correct seats.

It took me some time to piece together my "leather" interior in my ext cab, unfortunately it is hard to find leather seats in good shape, so I made my own set from 3 different donor trucks at two different parts yards.

Best of luck in any case.

From experience of buying a standard cab that had an ext cab 40/20/40 in it.

The framing is not the same between a ext cab and standard cab. The front of the ext cab set-up is shorter. The PO actually had stacked big washers to "fill" the gap between the bottom of the frame to the floor board. There was probably a 1.25" to 1.5" difference. Sorry I don't have a photo.
But I went to a local pick-n-pulled and found a standard cab 40/20/40 and put it in.

Yes, the front "legs" are shorter.
Just remember this is something that is a definite safety thing if you get in an accident you will want something secure and strong.

I'm sure you could swap the seats from one frame to the other.
