Seems like the 3 torx bolt are okay to remove but the fourth one which is the back left side is hidden. This is for the driver side. This truck has subside doors or extended cab. One photo for the ones that I can remove on back the other is hidden.

Removal

WARNING:
- The safety belt pretensioner is a pyrotechnic device. Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag equipped vehicle and when handling a safety belt buckle pretensioner or safety belt retractor pretensioner. Never probe a pretensioner electrical connector. Doing so could result in pretensioner or air bag deployment and could result in personal injury.
- To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not use any memory saver devices.

NOTE:
- If a seat equipped with a supplemental restraint system (SRS) component is being serviced, the SRS must be depowered.
- The air bag warning lamp illuminates when the RCM fuse is removed and the ignition switch is ON. This is normal operation and does not indicate a supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault.
- The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle to the customer.
- Driver seat shown, passenger seat similar.

1. Move the seat fully rearward.
2. Remove the 2 front seat track-to-floor front bolts.
3. Move the seat to the most forward position.
4. Depower the SRS.
5. Remove the 2 front seat track-to-floor rear bolts.

6. NOTE: Additional component connectors may exist due to vehicle options.

Disconnect the electrical connector(s).

7. Remove the seat from the vehicle.

Installation
1. Position the seat in the vehicle.

2. NOTE: Additional component connectors may exist due to vehicle options.

Connect the electrical connector(s).

- Rear outboard bolt.
- Rear inboard bolt.

4. Repower the SRS.
5. Move the seat fully rearward.
6. Install the 2 front seat track-to-floor bolts.

Did that help, Naser? If that seat isn't fully forward, I don't think you can see the retaining bolt.

Let me know.
