    I am looking for the best place (physical, not virtual) to find parts that would *fit* (be it Dodge, Ford, GM, etc...) my K5.

    Thinks I am looking for:
    1993+ Blazer Steering Wheel
    Seats that would fit (even if it needed to be worked on a bit) that recline, slide, etc, etc, etc (the more things it does the better) and maybe even have a 3rd seat (front). Such as in the new trucks with the consoul/seat option.

    I'm looking for junk yards, salvage yards, whatever. Oh, and it needs to be in the Denver Metro Area in Colorado.

    TIA!!!

    I used to drive a Aerostar at my old job and I really like the seats in there. It had 4 bucket seats and a third row bench seat. The back seats seem to have a higher back support and arm rests on both sides. The fronts had a lower back support and arm rest and only on one side. I would put the 2nd row bucket seats in the front and the front row bucket seats in the back of my Blazer. As far as I know the seats can recline, have lumbar support and can slide. Or, just estimating the width of the Aerostar, I think the 3rd row bench seat could fit between the wheel wells in a Blazer. But, I'm not sure if the bench seat slides or folds down.

    Sorry about the book. It may be cheaper to find a wrecked Aerostar or one that doesn't run and buy it as is. Most junkyards charge an arm and a leg for good bucket seats. (That last time I checked.)

    Here is a place that has excellent prices on seats. You can use the third seat out of a suburban for your rear seat. You just have to use your brackets, they bolt right on. This company manufactures the seats themselves. Takes about 7 days to process an order, then shipping. Shipping seems very reasonable too.

    their seatbelts seem nicer too.

    If you are looking for a factory seat try on eof the conversion places for a factory take out.... Try places like Geneva, Choo-Choo Customs, Trans aire, Mark III, etc...
