HELP: 2000 Ext Cab Seats in OBS

I'm trying to swap 40 20 40 seats from a 2000 extended cab SD f250. I read everywhere that these were practically bolt on, but this is definitely not the case

I originally had the bench seat XL. If anyone has any suggestions, please send them my way. The floor does not match the brackets at all. Do I need to get OBS 40 20 40 seat brackets? Is there a bunch of modification that I need to do?

You have to bend the sd seats "feet" to conform, and drill almost all new holes, I used crew cab seats in my crew cab though

I thought the bending idea was a bad idea and I did not want to drill any holes into the floorboards. So, I welded up some brackets based on the original bolt hole and stud arrangement. It comes down to 4 feet brackets with the rear feet reinforced to accommodate any force loads if you were to get into a wreck. I used the SD brackets, about cut in half, and welded to flat bars that span the width of the cab, which are then welded to the feet. Maybe more work than typical, but I could not find obs brackets anywhere at all..

Yeah I bent mine and used big bolts washers and nuts, bending repetitively weakens steal, but mine hold up just fine as is
