not really, front tabs i had to bend and adjust a little, also had to make the hole on one of the tabs bigger to lign up, then the back i had to make the tabs longer using flat steel, now just i just got to paint the brackets black.

Re: bucket seats

Are the inside holes front and rear already pre-tapped and pre-threaded?

Do you sit higher than a bench?

all the holes are there and threaded, only thing on the tacomas that are equiped with factory buckets the rear inside hole is on the tranny hump, my truck does not have that hole, so i used the seat belt hole on the floor and it was perfect, and i think im sitting about the same in height.

Re: bucket seats

Probably wouldn't support my fat azz. I'd need to weld in some blocks or something.

This is due to having a single cab with a factory bench I believe. If you had an XCab with 60/40 seats it would have the hole on the hump. I like your setup. My only suggestion is that you weld a support on the rear outboard bracket. Otherwise, it may eventually bend under your weight and cause the seat to lean outward.

Re: bucket seats

Near the door ...

Inboard = Near the centerline of the vehicle
Outboard = Toward the outside / periphery of the vehicle
