    Sorry not trying to add to many posts. I've got a million questions and its Saturday night and I'm bored at work. Anyways My front seats are pretty much shot. The back seat looks in good shape. My question is are there easy seats that interchange fairly easy and the passenger side flips up can this be retained. I've seen some nice aftermarket seats that I'd like but they are high dollar (I'm sure they are worth it once you ride in them) but some factory car seats are nice and comfortable was wondering if anyone has tried crossbreeding seats.......

    I was thinking of replacing the flip up pass. seat w/ a sliding one. Will this work? Has anybody done this?

    I would stick with a 4 point harness, that 5th strap can do bad things to the pitch of your voice if the harness isn't setup just right. We use 4 point harnesses in our off road race cars at school and they work great. One of our cars rolled at 50 mph off a jump and the driver never felt a thing. We got the car back on it's wheels and he took off like nothing ever happened. That pretty much convinced me that a 4 point is just as good as a 5 when it's setup correctly.

    I hate to admit this but I have a ford part on my truck!! I took a bench seat outta 91 ford pickup and all I had to do to get them in was make 4 brackes outta 1/4 inch angle iron and welded it the floor and bolted in the seat.. It is MUCH more comfy then the buckets. It also has a fold down arm rest which is integral in teh back of the seat..

    I'm going to go with the cobeau seats myself. They make brackets that bolt to factory locations, so no welding involved. On the passenger side it also converts the "flip" forward seat to a sliding one.

    Went with Flofit seats, have had them in over a year, and NO REGRETS. Paid around $800 for the pair with the custom mounts, everything fit great, seats are very comfortable, have lumbar pumps, headrests adjust up, down, and in and out, and have leg extensions. See picture.....to answer your question, yes, they slide as opposed to the tilt feature, but there is plenty of room to fit through the opening. Guys, check out Seat Source in Riverside, CA before you buy the Corbeau's or anyone elses, shop the prices......Tim at SEat Source is a good guy, no tax, and shipped on time - phone 909-343-9430.
