    Switch your seats around, I did that with mine for the same reason, who cares if the passenger gets the crappy seat..... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] The only controls I had were to flip it forward and back and it wasn't a hasstle.....I just thought that would do til' you found something else , as for direct bolt on good luck, although I do seem to remember a post about must@nt seats or Firebird buckets, but I'm not sure.... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gifI want some outta a newer s10 or the bravado their leather ,heated, electric, with lumbar and an inner arm rest, they're nice but I'l have to weld up some brackets........ /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Resurrecting this since I didn't find anything else in the search.

    I saw a k5 on CL that retro fitted denali seats into it. This included the back seats as well.

    That intrigued me in regards to my 89 burb. I'd love to upgrade the 2nd and 3rd row seats with some Denali seats.

    I would rather have either some mastercraft RS, Corbeau RS, or Beard seats for my driver/pass seats.

    The denali seats would be pretty sweet especially for the headrests and since I am strapping cars seats for my kids in there. I toyed with the idea of just doing a custom mounting system back there for aftermarket seats but then I loose the utility of fold down rear seats and hauling tools/lumbar/furniture and what not.

    Has anyone done a denali seat conversion?
