    youve got to choices. you can either fabricate, and weld up new brackets that will match the existing holes in your floor pan. Or, you can set the seat in, drill holles in the floor pans where the holes are in the brackets on the seat. Get some grade a nuts bolts, and washers. then I would recommend welding a good sized steel plate on the underside of your floor pans where the holes are. then drill thru the steel plate. The plate will help distribute the force and load of the seat over a larger area of your floor pans. install the bolts, and wala.

    Ive mounted all types of seats in chevy trucks. Easiest way to do it is use factory mounting points on the floor. So depending what seats you have in your truck right now I would start with late model blazer seat mounts. They are mainly risers. See how the slider on the ram seats is attached. you might luck out and be able to bolt or weld them right to the risers.
