Lets see your seat swaps....

Like the title says. Let see some seat swaps you guys have done on your 73-87 trucks. Preferably bench seats. If you could also post up what the seats came out of and what modifications were required to get them in. Thanks.....

Re: Lets see your seat swaps....

1991 Suburban buckets in a 1978 K10. This is an off-road rig thus the reason for the seat covers and netting behind the seat. If it was a street rig it would have been done much different.

Original bench seat. Old picture from around 1998 right after the automatic to manual trans swap.


Before seat covers and new seat belts. Jan 2009


After installing Cabela's TrailGear seat covers...... Great seat covers for outdoor adventures as they are easy to clean.

one big one, yes they are, and thanks. but the downsides are they scratch very easy, and there are a bear to keep clean.

Re: Lets see your seat swaps....

dumb question but can i do a swap using buckets and center out of an 85 k5 blazer? the reason i ask is because the center looks like it could sit real low with the dip under the bench seats just wondering if id have to mock up something to get it to sit at the right height or if it would sit like it does in the blazer? heres the seats and center looks like a good buy what do you guys think? http://tucson.craigslist.org/pts/1265836206.html

Re: Lets see your seat swaps....

it'll all fit with the right brackets out of the k5, mostly a straight swap tho



have another set for sale, exactly like these, same condition and color with center console, had them in my fleet but liked the bench better.

Re: Lets see your seat swaps....

I am considering doing the buckets & console from a Suburban. I found a really nice looking set here local for $125. Just have to convince myself if it is worth it. Right now I can take my wife & one of the 2 kids. If I do the buckets, it's just me and my wife because the kids seats will not safely go in the seat with 2 retractors on the belt. Anybody have thoughts on that one? Are the Suburban seats with having a console really worth loosing the extra seat?
