Bucket seats in a bench 94 Super cab?

I am on the home stretch of getting a 97 PSD OBS on the road, I just hit a speedbump and looking for some answers. The truck was originally a 97 OBS supercab, cab got wrecked, I found a 94 supercab that appears to have had a bench in it. I realised the problem I had when the seats from the wrecked 97 cab dont line up at all with the 94 floor pan. My question is, Is there a stock solution to get my 97 buckets in the 94 cab? Or is the only option to fab up brackets and modify accordingly?

By bench, do you mean split back bench?

To be honest, I have no idea what was in it before i got it.. but there's only 3 holes on the drivers side and 3 holes on the pass side for mounting a seat. after reading quite a few other seat posts, and getting no definite answer as to if there's a stock solution to this issue I figured I'd ask over in this forum, you guys seem to have it together.


Thanks for any help in advance.

No. I mean the bench seat. the bottom should be one piece and the back will be 2 pieces and they will fold towards the center to allow acesss to the rear. There would be 4 bolts holding it to the floor.

The buckets would have 4 bolts PER seat holding them down. 2 bolts towards the door and 2 towards the console

In order to put the bench in place of the buckets, you use the 4 outer bolts

OK, after reading my own post, I realize where the confusion is coming from. I forgot to mention that the 97 OBS SC had buckets in it. So i only have buckets to work with. I actually prefer buckets, but this cab doesn't want to hear it. you would figure the three holes that are there on each side would "kind of" line up with a bucket seat frame, but the seat frame is not nearly long enough to reach the back bolts.

I got ya. the 3 bolts per side were (2) for the seat and (1) for the seat belt.

The rear bolt on buckets is further forward, so you are not tripping over the frame when accessing the rear(as best as I can tell)

Yeah, front holes should be fine, you will just need to drill the back holes about 4" back form the existing one. There should even be a "support" in the cab floor there
