So it begins!

Today is the day me and 3.0 backfire finally are going to tackle his seats and do the bucket mod. If some of you don't know he has a regular cab with the bench seat that goes all the way up in the middle. So it should be interested. And i will take pics.

I love that mod maybe someday I can tackle it. I would love leather seats or heated ones.

Pics are a must and good luck with it.

I bet if he tightened/sewed the slack up on the covers he used it might look alright.

They look like bean bag seats
I would have redone the foam, then you could shape the seat anyway you want.

the seat covers aren't exact fit and personally i think it turned out awesome because right now there is no center which is exactly what we where going for. The only thing that needs to be done is the seat covers need to be tightened. Do you see any of the original fabric hanging out. No. so in my eyes it turned out good and Lance thought it looked good.

I think if you get a center console and then get better seat covers it will look good. But right now its incomplete.

I agree with Trent. Right now it looks like poo. Once the covers are tightened up it'll look better though.
