OBS/Superduty Seat Swap

Does anyone have information or is there a thread that goes through the process of replacing an OBS seat with a Superduty (1999) seat in a regular cab truck? I realize I have to drill new holes, but i'm looking for drill bit sizes, bolt sizes, shimming the seats, exact places to mount the seats (measurements) etc. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!

you have to just put the seat in and drill holes you dont have to shim them at all. you ahve to go to the hardware and buy the thickest nut that will fit the hole in the SD seat along with a bolt and washers and just drill the holes once you get the seat where you want it.
