You'll probably need to find something out of a Ranger, S-10, or Durango. I don't think anything out of a full size truck will fit.

I tried using the seat out of a full size chevy pickup but as Dan said it's too long. You could cut it down or get the seat out of an S-10 which is what I did. It's not quite as wide as stock but does fit in nicely. Others have used the middle seat from vans as well I think.

I am using the bench seat out of a 1987-89 full size chev p.u.in my 48 chev p.u..Some of the guys on another Trucks forum are using them also. It fits door to door if your int. door panels follow the shape of the inside of the door. Not sure if it is possible to trim the foam a little on the front corners when they recover the seat and make adjustments to the new seat cover.My seat is not as close to the doors as this one is the foam could be broken down or seat is not centered.

You could also....

You could also go with a bucket seat like I did for my 66 chevy truck. I just located the seats yesterday with lots of room for a console to come through the middle of the two seats. Just an alternative to a bench seat. That way you have the comfort of a full size seat.

I used a bench seat out of a 1994 s10 worked out great.
