    I am installing 2004 Yukon front and rear leather seats in my 86 Jimmy. If anybody has some great install pics for the front buckets or the rear third seat please send tyem my way. I have been searching all the threads and it seems like alot of us are moving toward having a comfortable place to sit on trips.

    Hi, I installed 03 Yukon front and rear leather seats in my 91 burb. In the front I used a 1.5" square tube on the center/or inside of each bucket with a L-bracket welded on the front of it. I leveled tube and sparked it. -----I guess I'll just get so pics for you.

    I installed seats from a 1995 Yukon in my K5. Two mount holes worked from the seats, two didn't. I also had to fab up some short adapters as the floor was shaped differently and made the seats sit oddly.

    Its nice have a 6-way power seat. But, I will be changing to something more off-road oriented. The Yukon seats are comfortable, but being fabric they hold dust and are hard to clean. Next up are vinyl suspension seats.

    I just used 1 inch square tubing in the front to lift the front edge of the seat a little. Then I bolted the stock Yukon seat frame to the floor in the back.
