    You could always just go to the wreckers, or classifieds and get some out of another tacoma. Not sure about the tacomas, but in the older pickups you could use the 4runner seats as well.

    By sticking with toyota, you ensure that the seats match the interior style as well as colour.

    Look on ebay and/or in the local junkyards.

    I had a 96 access cab with a bench seat. I put buckets in it from a 95.5 tacoma regular cab . The seats bolt in. The center console also bolted in but didn't necessarily conform to the tranny tunnel (it would rock a bit - which wasn't a big deal). I had a manual tranny.

    The only OEM seats that will bolt up 'as is' are 1995.5 - 2004 Tacoma buckets.
