Seat Question

I am goin to embark on the 60/40 to bucket cut on my seats and I have a question. Now when I pull the seat out can I take the passenger seat and put it where the drivers seat is until I get the cuts and stuff done? I am looking to take my time and make it all look right while still being able to drive it. So if anyone knows if it will work for a little while that would be appreciated.

no........your seat belt will be an issue.....



What you can do......is pull your driver seat, do your foam cutting,...ah crap. lost my train of thought.

What i'm tryin' to say, is no matter what, it's only 4 bolts away from being put back in the truck and driving down the road...no biggie even if in the middle of doing the mod.

seatbelt is an issue, but if you don't use yours (like me). then you do have another problem, all four bolts won't line when you try to bolt the pass seat on the driver side. you will be able to only get 2 or 3 bolts in....not safe

Brides? I used zip ties to hold all my material back, works great and you can't even tell with the console in there.
