    It looks like their are six bolt holes on the floor, but the seat only has four along the back. Are their two brackets that are supposed to be mounted to the front of the seat? Any info would help.

    As I recall, the 1st gen rear seats are the same as the 73-75.

    The outer holes in the back go to the brackets; the inside ones are for seatbelts and don't have brackets, IIRC.

    And god, yes, there should be brackets and bolts on the front, otherwise the seat and the passengers will go flipping backwards under acceleration!

    I oughta have some pix somewhere...

    When ya find out let me know.
    It looks like it is some sort of z bracket that the front just slides under and the rear is bolted to the floor.

    Well, crap. Shows you what I know :(

    Oh ... I know. The Blazer rear seat is the same as the early Burb third seat. My bad.

    There are 2 pipe clamp type brackets that mount the seat to the floor in the front. TonyP made some out of a chunk of aluminum that look sweet and I think others have used actual pipe clamps. I have a set of factory ones :D
