    Should i repair all of the damage that i can see and not worry about what i cant see or should i spend a little more and order the whole replacement parts?


    What i am replacing is the floor under and behind the driver seat.

    if you plan on having the truck for a while, then your just gonna end up fixing it all later. Its always good to do as much as you can when you do it. It will save you money in the long run. If you have the cash to do it, id say order a replacement extended floor panel. LMC has the piece i think you want. It not to expensive, and just requires some welding or riventing, whatever you prefer. Or do what i did (run a search on "Project Krumbling K5) You'll see i just built a new floor with 16 guage steel and some square tube.

    I have used the LMC floors. They don't fit well. The seat boss's are actually for the 85 and older floors. Where the 86 up floors are "raised" for the seat mounts, they are recessed like the older trucks. In my 89, I just slapped down sone heavy guage steel. ugly, but works. and 50.00 for a 6'x6' sheet.

    yes, they will fit, there isn't any mounting though. you have to make your own. No bolts in the floor. My seat sat crooked after I put it in. acouple of washers at it was ok agian.
