    Hey guys, newbie to the site, had been searching around trying to find some info on how to replace the bucket seats in my Taco. It's a '99, and the drivers seat is worn out after 178k on it. Has anyone else faced this dilemma? Did you just get the reupholstered or try to find some nicer new replacement seats?

    Appreciate the help.

    Try your local junkyards, Ebay, Craigslist...

    Call your local Toyota dealer. With all these 1st gen trucks getting failed for frame damage - maybe they'll let you buy one of the seats out of one before they crush them. Worth a shot.....

    Years & years ago I swapped my 60/40 split bench for buckets. I found a set in a junkyard.

    Getting a Taco in a junkyard is like playing the lotto. Call often and make sure they know your name, cause when one does come in it is usually taken by the end of the week. If you can find a 2001-2004 seat, I think they are a little better.
