Bucket seats --> Bench Seat (no dial)

I hate the bucket seats that were in my Ram when I bought it. Mostly because they are not stock and they were installed poorly. So, I went to the junkyard and got a bench seat from a 80s or 90s F-series 4-door.

I had to modify the brackets to fit the Ram and I didn't take pictures of them because the welds are embarrassing. Here are the rear brackets. I also had a small fire with the padding in the seat while I was cutting the old brackets. Now I keep a fire extinguisher in the garage at all times. All of this was done with an oxy-acetylene setup for welding, cutting, and a little brazing. It has been about 2 1/2 years since I have welded or cutt anything so go easy on me.

And eventually I will get a mexican style blanket to cover the seat instead of this bed spread.
