obs seat swap

hey just had a few questions trying to swap in some 1997- 2003 f150 lariat seats into my OBS F350 just wondering if anyone has done this and has any pointers I'm going with the f150's cause I assumed the super duty's were too wide

Re: obs seat swap

I have a set from an 02 F150 extended cab that i thought I could make work in my 93, once I sat them in the cab it was clear that it would take major surgery to get them to sit low enough to work. They are now sitting and waiting for the right project to come along.

Re: obs seat swap

If you pull out the seat tray you can modify them to work but it will require drilling new mounting holes in the floor.

Re: obs seat swap

I bought 2000 SD Lariat seats for my F350 CC and yanked the old seats and carpet out and had just put the seats in to see what needed to be drilled, shimmed, fitted, etc. My sister called and needed to borrow my car so I only had a few hours to get my truck back together in order to have transportation. So I went the quickest route which was to take the mounts off the SD seats and fit them to the OBS 40/20/40 mount bracket. I drilled and mounted them to the seat tracks on the OBS bracket and put 'em in. Fit great. Rear seats just needed new mounting holes in the floor and also fit great.
