    I am looking to replace my front seats in my truck but not sure on how to do it. If I go to a junk yard and get say like a pair of bucket seats out of a dodge truck is there a conversion bracket I can buy for it?

    Who has doen this sort of thing before? DO you have any pictures of the swap if so post them thanks.

    I just put some 2000 cavalier seats in mine. I guess there are many ways to mount differant seats, depends on your application. Mine were skinnier and shorter mounting wise from the stockers so I welded a plate on my stock brackets then drilled holes through the plate to bolt to. You could also use the stock bracket off of the new seats if it sits at the right height and then drill new holes in the floor board, I will try and get some pics uploaded in my webshots page this weekend www.webshots.com/alf4444

    When you get to the salvage yard, ask for a set from a 90-03 Suburban, Tahoe, Yukon or Extended cab pickup. They literally bolt in. In worst case you'll have to drill a couple of new bolt holes. I installed 96 Yukons and they were a 30 minute swap. 2 Door Tahoes, Yukons or Extended Cabs have the best seat as they'll slide forward as well as flip forward for better access to the back seat area.

    <font color="green"> THere are a couple pics of the seats in my truck here. They are out of a '92 Integra, I just made a simple rectangular frame out of 1.5" square tube, the welded tabs to the frame to bolt it ot the original holes in the floor and bolted the seats directly to the frame. I can get more detailed shots if you want. </font>
