Cuz he wants to and he can. I would just take a measurement of your passenger seat (40%) and the new racing seat... If they are the same width or pretty close.. You could probly just fit an expo or lvl 2 console

What do you mean by real trucks? That racing seat is gonna hold up well when that roof caves in. I wasn't trying to be an *** with my question. I was more wondering what you actually do with your truck to think your gonna roll it over or just think your cool with a racing seat.

A racing seat isn't a bad idea for a SAS. It will do well when you cage it in. I've seen some in guys road queen Rangers. I'm like, what's the point.
