i think you would have to use the brackets from here car, bolt them to your floor and then you can put the seats on....seems like a lot of work, plus it may not be as safe becasue the bolts arent going to end up in the spot desined for them

i say go for it. you could probably use your brackets with a bit of drilling or her brackets with some drilling. get to work and see what happens. im sure it can be done with as little as some hardware from home depot or something. just remember to keep it safe.

anything is possible and you should be able to keep your stock seat belt points. id reccomend your truck brackets as they may set up higher unless you like setting low.
