    has anybody had any expirence with these salesco.com three piont belts. my 74 only came with lap belts so i pulled some belts from my old toyota pick up, and after several years the passenger side belt seems kinda if'e (locks somtimes and somtimes it doesn't). the wife is insisting i buy NEW belts and i can't argue with that. anyways i guess my piont is are these good belts, or do you have any other reccomendations.

    I tried to use the SalesCo belt but it did not work properly. This is not to say they were bad, just the one I purchased did not work properly. They accepted them back and promptly refunded my money. I have heard of other members having good results. I think the truth be known, there may be only one or two manufacturers of AM seatbelts because SalesCo and JCWhitney look identical.

    I run Salesco belts front and rear, put them in when I did my interior resto 2+ years ago. The rear are purely lap belts, not retractable - which was fine for me. The front are factory replacements - don't have any part numbers - and I am very happy with them. One problem - it took three separate attempts to get the right 'female' part - the part that mounts to the floor inside a stiff plastic sheath to accept the belt and shoulder male part. The floor mounted part I ended up using for my truck was the 12" sheathed version. This may differ for your trucks - mine was fine because the Flofit seats drop down in that area. So if you do order, be veryyyyyyyy clear on what you want, then check them again.
