    sorry no pics now. but i have the factory buckets in my truck. i have been told the tracks need some big mods to fit the floors in the trucks. but if you want i can get pics for ya in the day light. to help you see the difference. and the blazer pass side is tilt and that will be fun to modify.

    The tracks themselves are much too tall to work in a truck as is.

    I've seen a few bucket seat Suburbans, believe those and trucks front seat floor pan is the same, so the tracks and seats should be a bolt in.

    Just look at the floor in both vehicles. The trucks/Suburbans "hump up" just under the front seats, where they mount,, while the K5 floorpan is flat in the same location.

    yes burban tracks are much closer and the frt half is a direct fit with the center supports on floor. but back half is some fab work. the factory brackets i have just needed to have the tabs put in the floor and drill 1 hole in back in the inner 2 bolt positions.
