    I think you might be able to get brackets with the seats but i think it would be best to play the waiting game for someone to wreck their truck.

    Thanks.

    Be aware of airbag issues.

    Make sure you get buckets from a year that does not have airbags in the seats.
    The harness for the bench vs bucket is different.

    You MAY need to transplant your airbag controller and remove the passenger seat pressure sensor and install it into the buckets... I'm not sure exactly.
    There is a writeup on putting older non-airbag buckets into a newer truck, but there's no writeup that I've found on a same-year transplant.

    Since yours will be the first, good pictures and a write-up are mandatory.
    Would be a hoot to have a <100 post new member get a sticky!

    I'm willing to go aftermarket, I need to get rid of the bench seat it's so uncomfortable and I'm short so when driving I have it pretty far forward, and my passenger ends up being cramped. The bench seat is really my biggest complaint about my truck and I've only had it for a month. Are there any suggestions for aftermarket seats that are relatively affordable?
