    I have a PRP seat that I am ready to mount into the Beast (84 Pickup), but they do not offer any direct bolt on kits for the seat to the floor. The way the floor is designed looks to make it quite difficult. Is there anyone who sells kits for this or do I have to make something custom. I wish I still had the flat floor like in the K5:doah:

    Just run a couple 1in bars across and mount those to the floor, then weld your tabs to that.

    The seats I bought have sliders so I hit up a local junkyard and pulled the brackets off a big Dodge van. The seat bolted right up but I had to drill more holes in th e floorpan.

    Thats' cool, the problem with the trucks are the floor ban has a big hump in it to clear the fuel tank. It originally had a bench seat so I think finding something from the junk yard might be hard.

    Sub's are yet again different, but what I did was to build a 1.25" rect. tube frame that bolted vis tabs/brackets to the stock seat mount holes in the floor. I then bolted the sliders to the frame. Can take a pic if you think it would help any.
    You can get "Universal" sliders from most of the seat mfg's if adjustment is desired.

    It has a slider already mounted to it along with brackets to directly bolt into a K5 drivers seat.

    A pic would be helpful:)

    Angle iron onto the stock sliders and tabs onto the angle iron. I had to weld (if you call it that) some risers on the rear to bring the seat somewhat level. The risers are a little too high. I am going to cut them down a little and reweld the tabs.

    Here are a couple of pics:
