    Thanks, well I have the opportunity to buy two black leather fully electric front bucket seats that go up, down, tilt, recline, and move forward and backward out of a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo for $150, the driver seat has some small cracks on it.

    What do you think? is it a go in your opinion? $150? I just dont know the price value on seats at all.. ( this price is just for the two front bucket seats)

    would it be worth while to have them throw in the back seat as well? would that work in my K5?

    Sorry I wasn't around.
    Yes I think $150 for those seats is good, I have no idea what you are talking about the seat belts?
    The stock ones?

    Well I bought the two front bucket seats out of that jeep. The people are now offering me the back seat out of that jeep as well for $150, its in mint condition. Should I buy it or re upholster my original K5 rear seat to match the front jeep seats? Is that a good deal for that jeeps back seat?

    I think the jeep seats are a little too narrow. I looked at one when I needed a back seat for my K-5 and ended up waiting for a Blazer seat out of a wreck. I think the jeep seat is 40 inches wide so it's somthing like 6 inches narrower then a blazer seat. plus, you loos the floor lock, seatbelt mounts etc. I say redo your existing seat.

    Ya got a good deal on the front seats. Pass on the back seat and put the $150 into re-upolstering yours.

    Seat belts? You'll find out if they will work when you try to throw them in your truck:rolleyes: Be sure to let us know if they work:D

    Cool, yea the front seats I think will look real nice and by re upolstering the rear it will still keep its authentic look.

    Im still trying to decide on what color carpet to get, I mean the inside metal is orange, the seats will be black so im thinking dark grey carpet. I went over on a car audio forum im on and asked around about some sound deadening stuff I can put on the floor under the carpet. I guess this is the top stuff now a days https://www.secondskinaudio.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi?p=ps&pg=1 , plus if your a member on www.caraudio.com you get a 20% discount. Its just that second skin has so many products its hard to choose what i want, its spendy but might be worth it in the end
