Default Replace Center console with seat

Hi just recently got a 2005 XLT. I need to make it 9 passenger and want to take out the center console and put a seat there. What seat (jumpseat?) will fit in there. Only ones I can find for sale is from the F150, will that fit? Also if I can find one, any idea what to do with the rear a/c and radio control that is on the current console? Thanks.

I think the bigger concern is how to mount a proper seatbelt.

On an F150 bench seat the belt MAY be mounted to the seat frame. It would be worth looking into

Did the same thing on my 03. Removed centre console, bought middle seat from F150, and bolted in. Used excisting holes at the rear, and bolted a plate through excisting holes in front, and drilled two new holes to align and bolt new seat in. Belts are at the seatframe. Half hour to remove centre console, 10 minutes to fabricate plate and 15 minutes to mount new seat. New seat is fold down and has storage in the back.

I just disconnected the rear controlls. Everything controlled and approved by the norwegian road and car controll, which are pretty strict.
