    <font color=black>We see tons of pic's of the exteriors, but what about the inside? Do you have an interior you like, have customized, redone,or is so disgusting that it deserves to be seen? Do you have pictures or links: let's see 'em.

    I ask half out of curiosity, and half to steal ideas.

    Sweet truck. IMHO, though, you should split your web page into 5 or 6 different pages. Takes forever to load the way it is.

    I have a hard time convincing myself to dump money into interior cosmetics... it just gets all dusty and crap when I offroad anyhow... a nice clean stock interior is all I need to make me happy.

    BlazzinOR, how comfortable are those seats on long trips? Do they have good lower back support for you? How 'bout for someone girl-sized?

    Thank Blackdog.. I'll rework my site..
    I agree.. I have too many pictures on it..
    But are you using a modem or cable modem or Dsl?
    Reason I'm asking.. With my cable modem.. it load's pretty darn fast..

    Skigirl..............they are the best seats I have ever taken a long trip in.........have lower back lumbar pumps...........thigh extensions (for us long legged 'male-sized' folks [​IMG]) that retract if you don't want them out............the headrest adjusts up and down and in and out..............side bolsters are incredibly supportive (would be great for a street car that corners) and the material is scotchgarded and looks as it did when new almost 2.5 years ago. There, now that I have promoted a commercial for Flofits [​IMG], you can get them at Seat Source in Riverside (not far from ya) at 909-343-9430.

    And my wife, who is girl-sized [​IMG] at 5'2" loves them too........

    Rocko---How easy did the seats from the 94 burban go in? Were they the right hight and bolt pattern?

    I ask because my 73 came with a factory bench and that was replaced with a pair of blue buckets. That are torn up.

    "If it aint broke don't fix it" is like a 4 letter word.

    There is a link in my preofile that shows it, but its all dirtyright now....cleaned it up a few days ago, and that same night a bunch of girls with no respect for other people's things trashed it out nicely...have rustoleum under the carpet to keep it from rusting, and newer tahoe front seats with the console, and custom made panels for 5.25" speakers in the doors. The carpet is kinda faded, but its usually in really good shape.

    They weren't easy to put in.. I used the Suburban seat bases.. so I modified some steel plate's to put down under the seat's..
    First.. I marked the original bolt hole's for the seat's, drilled those hole's out and bolted the plates down in the original seat bolt hole locations..
    Then, I put the new seat's down on the metal plates, marked the hole locations for the seat's on the plates..
    Drilled completely through the plate and floor board.. used grade 8 hardware about 2.5 inch bolt's with large washer's to bolt everything down..
    The seat's don't budge.. and they are in there pretty good.. I'm not worried in the event of a wreck.. god hope that never happen's.. The plates's will keep the seat's properly secured to the floorboards..
    I have some pics if anyone is interested.
