Replace bench seats in 1st generation?

Been doing some research on this but not really much on the 1st generation ones... So from what I've read the seats from a first generation Tacoma with bucket seats will(assuming you can find them in a
Junk yard) fit fairly easily into my Tacoma? I don't believe the bench seats have passenger sensors so I wouldn't have to worry about the wiring...

I did this conversion on my 97, bolted right in. You might have to change out the seatbelt recievers depending on what year seat you find. I put 2004 seats in my 1997 and the recievers were different, but the belts themselves were fine.

Where would you find the seatbelt receivers, would I have to order them online? Or I read that you could shave down the actual buckle and that would work... What did you do?

I did the same thing in my 96 (extended cab manual)

I found a set in a junkyard from a Reg cab (same era).....seats & console.

Seats bolted right in.

The only problem was the center console didn't fit flush to the floor (tranny hump). It rocked slightly even after it was bolted in. Didn't bother me any.....

If you find seats in a junkyard, then you should be able to find the seatbelt receivers from the junkyard also.

All I ended up doing was changing the seat belt recievers from my bench seat to the new bucket seats, only problem I had was I didn't get a warning light on the dash when the belts weren't plugged in. Not a problem to me, I always wear them anyway.

I know in the 2nd gen, you can just grind off a tiny bit, and the bench buckle clips right into the bucket receptacle. might work on the 1st gen too.
