    Anyone done this mod? I'm getting a set from a blazer and going to put them in my pickup. I think its a pretty easy modification and only requires modifing the brackets a little on the buckets. Anyone have pictures of this if they have done it? I am interested to see what had to be done.

    There's a big difference in the floor profile between a K5 and a pickup. The pickup floor is raised to accomodate the saddle tanks. The K5 floor is flat.

    My experience is using regular-cab buckets in a bench-seat crewcab. I had to fabricate stuff for 3 out of 4 mounting points for each seat /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    If I were to do it again (or do the swap you're doing), I'd try mid-80s-to-95 Chevy van seat tracks. They're very compact height-wise (only ~1" tall) so you would just have to install them the way you want over the fuel tank hump, and the K5 bucket should bolt right on.
