    I want to get a rear seat for my truck but iIm told that only a 73-76 will bolt right in. So i need some measurements of the distance between the mounding bolts on a 77-91 rear seat so i can see how much different the bolt pattern is. Any other info in the differences will be appreciated. I know that the later seats can fold down.

    There is one bolt per bracket, and the measurement from bolt to bolt is almost exactly 3 feet......

    The fold and tumble style are quite different as far as the floor goes. The later style has a pair of inset slots things in the floor itself for the rear of the seat to hook into. There is also a shouldered bolt on the side of the pasenger wheel well for the telescoping support arm.
    The front mounts are pretty basic and double as the hinge for the seat to pivot on.

    I have a 74 Blazer and a really decent interior from a '90. I plan on using the 90 interior and the rear seat from the 90, I'm going to raise the whole thing up about 4" off the floor. This will give me some storage under the rear seat and instead of having to cut into the rear floor for the anchor part I can bolt down some supports and anchor points.

    This is sort of on the same subject; Has anyone thought of putting in bucket seats in the back? I was wondering if you could fit two bucket seats side by side between the rear wheel wells?!?

    I think it would be cool to have buckets in the back.
