well there will be at least 2 inches from the top of the bench which sticks out the farthest to the tailgate.

Im not saying it cant be done, Im just saying I wouldnt do it. The seatbelts would basicly be pointless. Also would you mount the seats to the body or back down to the frame? Remember the fuel tank is back there as well..

Well, that would be extremely dangerous. I dont think the couple of inches of leg room would be worth it.
