    I bought some captains chairs for my blazer that came out of an early 90's truck. They are power, reclining, and both sides flip forward way more than the stock one seat did. You could also look for seats out of the new body style f/s blazers, or older suburbans. I know seats out of the older burbs will bolt right in. As far as my seats go, Im not sure about the bolt pattern, but if it didnt line up, I was going to make new brackets.

    You can find some nice seats by searching for Alcatera seats. I got 2 for 400.00 with shipping. Got mine off ebay.

    I did much the same as alf4444, except that I used seats from a 96 Geo that I got for $36/pr at half price day at the junkyard.

    i swapped in seats out of a 2000 Silverado. They are so much more comfortable especially for the huskie gentlemen.

    I think the Grand Am seats are very similar if not the same. Last time I was at the junk, there was a loose bucket seat in a '95ish Grand Am and a conveniently located '91 Sub. You'd need to drill/reinforce the rear mount area, but the front looked almost bolt-in.

    i used cloth seats from a 95-99 with the center console in my 75. they fit great and recline all the way down. they are power seats but i did not know how to hook up the heat.

    i just bought a full set of escalade seats with power and air bags. its all leater. i bought the full set for 400. i sold the center seats for $800. i am going to install the rear seats that fold. the only thing i dont like about them is that they dont recline all the way and they dont fold forward to let in rear passengers. the 95-99 seats folded so i can get people into the rear. i dont use truck for rock or mud anymore. it actually just sits in my driveway so im not concerned about the leather get thrashed.
