    I have an '86 GMC Jimmy with worn out bucket seats. I'd like to replace the original with some low back buckets so the back of my hat doesnt hit the seat. Anyone have any options that would preferably be easy to install without a lot of fabwork (due to lack of tools more than ability)? Though I can probably buy or borrow some of the tools I don't have if I have to do some fab work.

    Hmmm, anyone have measurements on these? I was hoping to use my high backs in the front and back of my '72 but they are too high for the back, especially with the roll cage. The low backs sound like a possible solution.
