Default Seat Upgrades for 83 D350 CCSB
So, I have been told Gen 2 interior will fit. I have half a football field it seems inside my cab. I want to put 40-20-40 or 2 buckets and a center console in the front. I can leave the rear bench for now, but i'd eventually like to put a 40-20-40 back there as well.

Thoughts?

If anyone has or knows someone selling a cloth or leather interior, I am interested.

My best bet would go to a salvage yard. Cloth is easy to fix I repaired mine with an old t shirt and weld wood and a patch from walmart. 2nd gens are everywhere they are more common with cloth I would start with and early 2nd gen first for some reason their interior cloth holds up better.

My build was posted at greatlakes4x4.com but they are a bunch of ass hats. So I have deleted my account.

I purchased 2 sets of interior. I am keeping one front set. I am not decided if I am going to keep the second set or not. Its going to take a lot of fab to make them work as back seats. The rear of the cab is about 6" higher than the front seat wells. I really thought it would be nice to have matching front and rear bucket and center seats.

I am going to put the bench back in the rear for now. Carpet is going in today.

Hindsight I wish I hand just stripped the old bench to the frame and used that to mount the front seats. But water under the bridge. That is what I'm going to do in the back, use the old frame from the front. Infact the bottom angle is even the same. It Must have been an old back seat someone put in the front BC it has a bracket mounted to the bottom to level it up when mount in the front.
