Difficulty level of swapping rear buckets for rear bench?

I'm looking at buying a '09 f250 KR. Problem for me is, it has rear captains in it. I need the bench. How hard is it to swap and what to do about seat belts.

Should be a very easy direct swap over but not completely sure. If you would like I also just purchased a King Ranch, a 2008 with 22,000 miles that has the rear bench that I would be willing to trade you straight accross assuming yours is in good shape.

Also: Where are you located? I am in North Dakota but the truck is in San Diego, CA so i will be driving back and if it works out maybe we could do the swap along the way to avoid shipping

You may have a little problem. The back wall of your cab is missing a bracket needed to mount the center shoulder belt. I bought my truck with a salvage title (missing the interior, was the same setup as yours). I too needed a bench seat, so I found the bracket at a salvage yard and had them cut it out of the cab. The down side to installing this bracket is that it needs to be welded in. Also but no big deal, a few more seat mounts holes need to be drilled out. Nuts are welded to the floor pan just no through hole.
