    Thanks for the comments.
    The seats are the same ol seats that i have had in there since i bought the truck... I've gotten tired of sitting in that hole in the drivers seat where all the padding is missing. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif So i got em re-upholstered black with those custom maroon bowties to match my paint.

    If i remeber the previous owner said something about firebird seats, but other people have told me they look like they're out of a thunderbird. *ahem* /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    I like how they are electric...
    They move straight up/down, foreward/back, tilt foreward, and they have air pockets that puff up for the lumbar in the lower back and the side thingie's fill up and grab you tighter.
    They bolt up pretty nicely, just the underside is a B$#^%H to get a wrench onto because you have to stuff your arm up inside the rocker box to get to the nut.

    I had to grind the head off one of the bolts and punch it through to get the seat out... I replaced all the hardware with grade 8 bolts.

    Chris...
    Thanks for the tip... I'll have to go look on the underside of the seat a little better.
