Whatever seats you choose, you will have to build a frame to set them on.



I used buckets out of a Hyundia Steller.

Tape measure is your friend. Measure your truck cab and then go to a junk yard and look at seats. Find one that looks good. Then measure.

seating

You might consider looking at seats from a conversion Van, like an E-150 or such, as they are plush and generally have the right heights and track to fit your truck. If you run into a dimensional problem, look at seats from a mini van like an Aerostar.

Bench seat out of 80s chevy pu works good, just the right width. I used 87 Olds Cutless buckets in my 55 f100.
