    My factory bench seat (along with its second cover) is finally completely and utterly shot. Anyone have some sweet seating they have pics of? Details such as where you can purchase said seats, the mounting (bolt in or did you make custom brackets, etc.) and overall satisfaction would be great. Oh, and I'm not going to put in a complete roll cage for some new seats, so seat belts should be a concern as well /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif.

    <font color="green"> Just get some bucket seats from the junkyard and make a simple rectangular frame out of square tubing that bolts to the factory holes, then bolt the new seats to said frame. Not too difficult and you end up with real nice seats. I have seats from an Acura Integra in my truck. </font>

    you best bet for cool seating is out of a junkyard. Gets some avalanche seating or yukon or something like that. Car seating works well if you don mind building new bases. Aftermarket seating can get expensive. Flexsteel makes some of the nicest seats around.

    I say if you can afford it go with a set of Beard or Mastercraft seats!

    Do the beards work right with factory seatbelts?

    I just ordered a set of PRP seats (like Beard, but faster better service) and Corbeau 4 points.
