    I think, years being similar, the benches are identical.

    I don't know about the new-fangled ones with the flip-down thing though... mine is too old for that. :)

    If its a good seat use your brackets on the new seat. These pics might help.

    it looks like the crewcab seat brackets bend down with the floorpan & the reg cab brackets kick up

    reg cab floor pan (area where the paint is chipped is where the seat bracket mounts.

    you can take the front bench from a crewcab and put it in a regular cab. I've done it, you just need to bend the brackets a bit.
