    I am curious what kinds (what they are from) of seats you guy's have installed in your blazers... I need some options... It's 250 bucks to redo a seat where i live... OUCH...

    Um... yes officer I know it's too big...

    This summer I plan on upgrading mine like several other members have, with newer seats from a 95+ Tahoe/Yukon/Extended Cab truck. I have found them locally with the console for $400. It requires drilling new holes, but they look great.

    I have a set of CORBEAU Targa RS and I love the things they look awesome and they really hold you in place but they are kind of pricey they are 320 apice and the mounts are like 80.00 apice

    but you get what you pay for plus I got the seats for 300 for the set still in the bubbel wrap

    <font color=blue>I got some 90 something Cavalier or Corrsica seats (cant remember which one [​IMG] ) from a swap meet two years ago for $40 for the pair. They match my blue floors/dash and are comfortable. I was at the junkyard last week, some of the cars that had only been there a short time had some seats in them that would be perfect in a K5. I used some box tubing to mount them to my floor at the correct height (car seats will need to be spaced up about 4") but I'm going to mount them to the cage when I build it. </font color=blue>

    I installed a set of nice cloth captains buckets out of a 1994 Suburban... had to modify the base to get them to bolt up.. but man they look nice..

    I bought the middle bench seat out of a 99 suburban, it is gray cloth and it matched my interior real well. i got if for $100 and if was pretty easy to install, just a little bit of fabricating and drilling a couple holes and it was in. i put it in the front and the pasenger seat even slides forward and folds down, so that someone can get in the back. it was a pretty good fit. i would send some pics if i knew how, but i would recomend going that way to anybody. now all i need to do is get my back seat covered to match it. and the middle section of the seat folds up so that 3 people can sit in the front.

    I found a set of power buckets from a Ph**d Windstar van ($200 with seat belts). The front two mounting bolts lined up with the original holes (had to drill two holes for the back).

    Flofits from Seat Source in Riverside, CA........about $800 including the mounts, lumbar support, etc. Had them 2 years, best seats I have ever sat in for comfort, support and looks.
