    I bought my 70 blazer a couple months ago and have been at work on it but i can't seem to find any place for a back seat. no one offers aftermarket rear seats to my knowledge and i can't find any salvage yards that have one any help would be appreciated. also, my four wheel drive nob is popping out of place when i put it in 4 wheel drive and i was wondering if this was a common problem or not and if there is any way to fix it.

    Try looking in the for sale section...rear seats show up in there every once and a while. You can also look into a custom seat like a Beard racing seat. They make a bench to match the buckets they sell.

    As for the shifter slipping out of gear...you might want to see if the body is hitting the shifter.

    hey thanks a bunch for your reply, i looked into the beard seats and i posted a want message in the wanted forums, but do you know of any other companies besides beard that make back seat applications for blazers?

    I don't know of anyone that makes back seats specifically for Blazers, but you may want to hit the junkyards. I've seen some minivans that have a 3/4 length middle bench seat that look to be about the same width as our blazer back seats. Just an idea.

    Silver put a location in your bio. Don't think you'd want to pay shipping very far for a seat. Might get more responses.

    Measure the front bench seat from a 80's S10 pickup. It doesn't have the side arms a stock seat does but the width is about right.

    Will buckets from an S-10 Blazer fit in a 1st Gen? Mine has factory buckets now, THRASHED! I have a line on dual buckets, drivers is power.

    You can make anything fit with enough money or a big enough hammer. But I was talking about the back seat on a Blazer and the size of a S10 bech seat to replace it. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    You should have at least 48"s tween the fender wells as a sheet of plywood fits between them. I think the S10 bench is 46 or 47"s wide and it folds forward. If you adapt the stock S10 mounts the whole seat will slide forward and back like a front seat does that might give a little extra room behind it too.
