Anyone try a set of k5 blazer buckets? It seems like a lot of the GM seats fit the jeeps with out much effort.

I put in a set of late 70's early 80's CJ lowbacks in my 90' beast and they look awesome.The only mod was to redrill/tap the front mounting bolts on the passenger side seat... pics to follow

Does anyone know about a 2000 ford ranger. It is still a 60/40 like the 94. I found one for 40 bucks and really like the idea of having a middle seat or fold down console. Thanks

After using these almost a year, I'll tell you that these seats are fantastic. Mine have been in the rain and the freezing cold. They are water resistant and are soft even in the cold. Plus, like yours, they look perfect.

we've got seats from a 98 I think in ours just put in this weekend. I had to redrill the mounting holes to make them mount up to the Jeep sliders. they are sitting to high in the front right now, but i'm looking into ways to drop them down some. seen where one poster had redrill the front supports on the passenger side back some for about 1 inch drop (sorry i can't remember who did this) and i'm still trying to see about the drivers side. they look and feel great, but at 6'2" are just to tall for me. my wife at 5'4" fits her perfect.

I hate to bump this, but had a quick question for those of you that have done any of these swaps. Do any of you run a center console with the new seats? I ask because I currently have the Smittybilt stereo console, and the stock seats are very tight against it. I'd like to know if I can squeeze any seats in before I go to the JY. Thanks.

Edit: I also meant to ask if anyone had successfully installed some Ford Probe seats.

When you get a chance could you measure the width of the can?
