    I e-mailed the guy and he said that he'd take $90 for them...

    What do you guys think? I think I'd just cut out my carpet up on the hump and weld them in place...or is it better to keep them on sliders?
    I just noticed that the handle is visible on the second pic...looks like the sliders come w/ them...

    Have you ever sat in one of those seats? I personally have sat in a ton at work and can't stand them, very flat and no bolstering, just my opinion though.

    Edit: after looking closer at the seats in the pics I don't think they're from a Chevy Colorado, don't ever remember seing any with armrests or side impact air bags. Not sure what those are from, apparently neither is the seller

    If you do it do it right and Build a sub-frame for the new seats that will bolt to the stock bench mounting holes and Mount a tuffy-console beteween them
    Petersons did a story on that awhile back in there project army truck

    what do the stock bench seat mounting holes run though? Is there a crossmember that runs down to the frame or are they just holes through the sheetmetal?
