    I'm not aware of anything that will bolt directly in. The seats I'm using now came out of a Mitsubishi Eclipse, i think.

    I modified the existing brackets to accept the new seats. The drivers side was real easy, but the passenger side took me a while to figure out since I wanted to keep the tumble forward feature.

    I would find some seats that you like and then figure out how to make 'em work.

    I'm running seats out of an iroc right now, they didn't bolt up, but a little screwing around with the brackets and i got em to fit. Gonna switch to 94 suburban seats pretty soon though so I can get some armrests

    I have early 90s Explorer seats in mine. Took some welding and some fabbing but they are in there. I retained the tumble forward feature on mine too. A word of warning. If your seat has a spring loaded seat back becareful, it cracked my windshield.
