    im assuming the OP is talking about a seat swap in a regular cab. there are two rails, but if you can find bucket seats with rails they swap in, the only thing is there aren't holes in the carpet, but they are there in the floor. also the wiring for the airbag sensor are different between the buckets and the bench.

    It depends on the year of the truck. I just installed 07 leather buckets in my 05. Post on another Taco site indicated that the driver's side bucket is PNP, which it was. Seat belts are another issue since buckles are smaller for the buckets. We kept old belts for now (per the other post) and will replace them later. Turned off the pass airbag since pass bucket isn't PNP, will have to find wiring harness for it. Console is a different animal. I purchased an interior (buckets and console), but console won't fit since bench auto shifter appears to sit closer to the dash. I could be wrong or there's actually a different trim piece for the regular cab's shifter. Console is actually 3 main parts. All in all the kludge on the seatbelts aside, not a bad deal, but the console is a sticking point right now.
