Is the only difference between a 69-70 and 71-72 rear seat...

Before I mess with the rear seat, is the only difference between a 69-70 and 71-72 rear seat the rear middle mounting brackets?

I have a rear seat from a 70 and plan on relocating the center brackets farther apart for my 72.

First pic is from a 70, 2nd pic is from a 72.

My 72 has a bar that goes across and the two seat belts in the middle bolt to that, not the floor.

A bar built into the seat? Do you or anyone else have a picture?

Both my 72s have no center supports - only outside brackets as shown here: http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...26&postcount=1

Note seat belt location differs also and those that bolt to the floor use differing trim boots versus those that bolt to the seat support.

Hmmm, where is the other side of the seat belt mounted on your highlander? Also, if not to the floor there would be no where to mount the center belts?

The picture depicts the seat brackets but the center seat belts were not present when that picture was taken but would bolt to the floor probably using the threads that would accommodate the center brackets seen with the other seat style.

Sooo, just went looking for 72 Blazers with the highlander package, only found 3 that showed a picture of the rear seat, all 3 have only 2 rear legs (mounting points) interesting.
