Bench to bucket conversion...

Can this be done? The truck is a '97 crew that has a Tag-a-long package, but came with a bench...BUMMER! I need to get rid of it ASAP. I have not pulled the carpet to check for mounting points yet.

I was also looking at aftermarket seats...found some that have message and AC in them...NICE!

Thanks

it can be done, if you go with aftermarket you will have to either fabricate or buy vehicle specific seat brackets that are usually available through the seat manufacturer, But I know for a fact factory obs buckets 40/20/40 will bolt in directly, check out my gallery for pics of my 93-95 lightning buckets mounted in a factory bench seat truck,
