    Basically i decided today i wonder if i can put a bench seat in the k5. Ive got an 84. I know ive gotta get one that one side folds so people can get in the back.

    I thought about doing it a few years ago. I gave up after I saw how much work it would be. Now that I have a welder, it probably wouldn't be too bad. The biggiest obstacle is that the pickups and the burbans have a raised floorpan and the blazers have stands. So if you want the bench, you have to build new seat brackets. I dont know how well the folding ones would work, but I think it would hinder acces to the back.

    Hmmmmm...:rolleyes:
