    Has anyone done this ?
    Is it a drop in or will brackets have to be fabbed up?
    I was given a set of high backs from a van that are the same as what is in there, but the same guy also gave me the front captain chairs from a burb. Good shape to and seem to be comfy, arm rests, tilt and swivel.
    As I do not have a rear seat one set of those will be installed in the rear.
    If the captains will drop in with little trouble then I will have em up front.
    Either way is fine with me, a 5 gallon bucket would be a vast improvement as to what is in it now.

    Floor pan is different between burb and K5.

    I'm sure the seat cushions (upper and lower assemblies) are all the same if you had c/k buckets, regardless of whehter K5, etc., but the floor mounts have to be different.

    Never dealt with captains chairs, but I'm guessing the swivel portion is between the seat and the seat bracket. Probably easiest thing to do would be cut the stock K5 bucket brackets to the right "height", and unbolt the seat tracks (along with seat, etc) from the burban and put (weld mayebe??) those on the K5 brackets?

    Will the armrests from a burb bolt on to a K-5 seat?

    well i could if i still had that one, sorry I just got rid of it like 3 months ago but it is fairly easy because of the flat plate on the bottom of the captain chairs at least mine had a flat plate and i just bolted them in after doing a little drilling and pounding to even out the floorboard.
