    I've thought about it. I NEVER use my back seat. End up taking out out during hunting season. A bench seat would keep stuff from coming out of the back into the front with me. Shouldn't be much at all involved in swapping. A friend of mine used a 60/40 split bench out of a Cadalliac...electric options and all that. I always thought that would be the way to go.

    You are talking about the rear bench seat, right?

    I also have a 60/40 split bench in mine out of a Chevy truck. I just put the seat were I wanted it, mark and drilled the holes and used some big washers to shim the brackets. Worked great real easy.
