    I don't have a rear seat and I was looking for a replacement. I was wondering what you guys are running for a rear seat. If it is not OEM, what did you use for brackets. I think I'm going to try and get a GEN 2 rear seat,but I wanted to check with you guys first.

    What is different between the seat and the floor brackets? What year is the seat? I could measure the holes in the bed of my '69 but I don't have the rear seat so I can't check it out.

    I saw a magazine article once where they put a Beard bench seat in the back of a second gen k-5. It looked really nice. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.redart.com/benchrs.asp>http://www.redart.com/benchrs.asp</a>

    I scored a 3rd row seat from a 2000 Suburban (flip and fold with integrated 3 point belts) for $200 on EBay and had some brackets fab'ed for $50.

    It fits between the wheel wells great and unlatches and pulls out like in the newer trucks. Only drawback is that I didnt sink the brackets into pockets in the floorboards, so they stick up when the seat is removed. Maybe I'll build a sub-floor someday.

    Maybe more than you'd want to spend, but probably cheaper and more functional that the beard bench seat, which doesnt fold or pull out, if I recall.
