    Is it possible? I don't want to have to mod the floor. Would I have to use the mounting brakets from the donor truck or could i just mount the bench to the K5 brackets? Anyone have any pics? What about a 60/40 split? Thoughts and ideas??? Thanks!

    I've researched this quite a bit and no one makes off the shelf brackets. You will have to fab the brackets and reinforce the floor where you bolt it down. I think the 64/40 is the best idea, especially out of an extended cab prior to the third doors. The seats on those slide and fold forward keeping access to the back seat.

    I was thinking the 60/40 would be better becuase I could retain the passanger seat foward flip for access to the back seat. Maybe something out of a late model fullsize truck. I might have to hit the junk yard and take some measurements.
