    I'm looking to put bucket seats from a 1997 or so Tahoe, Suburban or a pickup in my 1990 K5. I remember some of you guys had done that. Do the seats bolt right in or will I have to do some fabrication? If I have to do some modifications, what exactly do I need to do? Haven't bought the seats yet, but wanted to know what needed to be done to put them in before I got some. Also, does anyone know where I could find some of these seats in grey?

    Thanks,
    BONDO

    I got my buckets seats in my 74 Blazer out of a 98 Blazer. I had to fab some mounts, but they work GREAT!!

    Not sure if you are stuck on the Tahoe seats, or what price you will pay. If you are also including aftermarket in your search, give Seat Source a call (Riverside, CA), they carry a few good aftermarket brands. I got a set of Flofits from them (around $800 for the pair with brackets), love them, great dudes to deal with, and no sales tax. Good luck.

    Were those seats out of an S-10? I was just wondering if the ones out of a full size might bolt right up. What really got me hooked on this idea is this past weekend when I drove my dad's 97 Full size extended cab on a trip. It has the bucket seats in it with the center console. I just loved those seats!!! I thought it would be nice to put a couple in the old K5 as the drivers side is getting that all too famous rip in it.

    I had to fab a bracket for the 2 front mounts and re-drill and brace the rear moounts. I have 97 suburban front seats and console in my 84. The fabrication took very little time and effort after I bought the seats and had time too think about it

    Drivers seat is 6-way poower with lumbar, pass is power lumbar only,,,,very nice

    Good luck

    Hey guy dont know about the bucket seats but I got some from a '99 Dodge Ram had to do a little fabrication and drill just one hole in the passenger's side and they look great, and they're electric too well just the pilot side got them from my dad's work they were just laying around and I told my dad to ask his manager how much I can buy them for, you wont believe this I got them for $20 they've known my dad for a while I guess that's why, anyway if I come across more deals like this one I'll post them up.

    ps. my friend has a 73 K5 also and he got some bucket seats from a 95 Tahoe he did some drilling also but they look great so good luck buddy

    keep blazin !!!

    I got them through a buddy, they were take outs for new customs. $350.00, but I know in Pomona CA at the swap meet the cloth will go for 5-700 and leather have gone for 7-1000. Those guys love that stuff.
