    Does anyone have a stock rear seat they want to get rid of? I have a 74 Jimmy and when I got it there was not one in it.

    IIRC the 73-75 rear seat is different than the 76-newer ones... make sure you get the right one

    I *stink* it's 73-77 is the one style and 78+ is the other ... at the least, the floor pan changed.

    Anyway, what you need, Jake, is the kind what bolts down on four corners, not the flip-n-fold stuff your newer trucks have. I've got one, but shipping it would kill the usefulness of the deal.

    Thank's guys, I will keep looking. Dremu I would like to see pictures of your Blazer as I have a 4" lift and 35's on the way, they should be here tomorrow.
    I'd like to see how much "trimming" you had to do.

    LOL, I had to do trimming to get rid of rust, more than to fit my tires!

    :haha:

    I just cut them back to the inner wheel well, except along the rear tops, where I left a little... but again, that was to remove Bondo and swiss cheese that was once metal, not so much for clearance.

    I have a '74 as well. I use a newer flip and fold seat from a '87/'88 in the rear. It sits approx 1/2" lower than stock. It was an easy modification to make. Basically, the front hinges bolt right into the stock front location. You'll need the rear mounts that go into the floor from a newer K5 or 3rd row suburban seat. It took me all of 20 minutes to install it, and I like it MUCH better than the stock bolt in one. I can flip it up out of the way when I need to open up the rear, instead of having to unbolt it.

    I made custom mounts for mine. You can check some of the pics out on my webshots. (see my link in my sig).

    Anyway, just something to consider.
