Have Bucket Seats, Want a Bench!

Hello. I have a 1995 Tacoma with bucket seats. My seats have been covered since the day the truck was purchased and are in great condition. My family has grown and I really need a place for a third person.... I would like to swap out my seats for a bench. Anyone have a bench they would sell or trade???

My seats are gray in color. I can text you a picture if you give me your cell number.

Where are you located? (city/state?)

Re: Have Bucket Seats, Want a Bench!

Is yours a solid bench or a 60/40? I have read somewhere that the 60/40 will fit but the solid bench may need extra brackets?

okay sounds good , it should fi,t a bench uses 4 bolts, a bucket uses 4 bolts per seat, but i belive 95 to 2004 the seat mounting were the same, but i could be wrong though so ill read on it and ask members on this site for info

Re: Have Bucket Seats, Want a Bench!

The bolt hole layout was *mostly* identical for benches, 60/40's, and separate buckets. Benches used only the 4 outermost bolt holes. There are differences between driver side 60/40 and bucket installations in some years / models (when there's a difference, one uses an inboard rear bolt hole on the tranny hump; the other uses a floor hole in that location).

Melissa:

(1) Seats are 'big', and shipping could get expensive. Both you and 03tacoma2rz might find it less expensive to locate used seats closer to your locations (Texas and Massachusetts).

(2) You can transplant either a solid bench or a 60/40 set. A 60/40 is really just a standard passenger side bucket seat with an extended driver side bucket.

Re: Have Bucket Seats, Want a Bench!

Or... You could ship via Greyhound Bus Lines.. Less costly, not as quick but.. Less costly. As long as the pieces will fit in the "basement" of the bus, should be good to go.

I'm proud to have had the privilidge to meet some of the greatest CT'zens in the world. At mini-meets, meet n greets, car shows and TacOberFest. It all started right here..
