    I assume you are refering to the '80s style with the pockets in the floor. If that is the case you need to get the pockets.

    I got mine from the salvage yard. They cut out the section of the floor with the pockets. Then I drilled ou the spot welds that held them too the floor. Use the old floor for the dimensions on were to cut the holes. The floor in your truck will have smooth spots stamped into it where they will mount. I used "button head" bolts so the wouldn't show thru the carpet so much.

    I will say this much. It is a major PITA! And I don't care to do another anytime soon. The rear pocket are over the gas tank cross member and the fronts weren't the easiest to get at either. The pockets have to be mounted on the bottom side of the floor, if you want a factory looking install.

    I saw some on ebay last week. Try "chevy seat" The guy had them advertised as new, so I don't know if they were factory GM ones, or if they were repo's. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Also, your going to need the seat belts. The center belts are with the seat. The outters stay in the truck. So if you don't have those, off to the salvage yard!

    My '91 has an aftermarket grey leather 3rd seat. It bolts to the floor. I'm pulling it to install a factory grey cloth seat. One thing about the aftermarket seat is that it has a split back that reclines.
