    My Blazer origionally was a forest service truck. It has different front seats than all the other stockers, I was wondering if anyone has seen a reupholstery kit for these seats? Thanks!

    No I don't but I can get some...the driver's seat is pretty much like stock buckets, but the passenger seat is kinda cool, it isn't adjustable, it only uses 2 bolts in the front, that are on a bracket that swivels, then in the back there is a bracket and a pin that goes into it, when you pull the pin the whole seat lifts up and forward, sort of like a fold and tumble seat without the fold. It makes it real easy to get into the back.

    That sounds like how the stock passenger seat works. Sure there not stock. I'd be interested to see pics too.

    Hate to break it to you Ryan, But the coloradoK5 site's were given the boot as couple months back because of the bandwith problems the Steve has been having[​IMG], So sadly if you did not have your site backed up on your computers hard drive, It's gone, Thrown into the depths of dead internet sites!
