Has anyone ever swapped front buckets into the rear of a CC RAM? I am considering doing this but want to see if anyone has done it first so I can gain some insight.

Yep. Fwiw it’s cool. But it is a pain in the rear! They sit a little too high for anybody tall. I’m 6’4 and it’s comfy fit. Head room is a little snug. But I can still move rear seats forward or back and they also adjust the seat back still. Short people really seem to like it back there. I’ll be putting prp suspension seats in at some point. My truck is a toy and off-road rig also. So this made my decision easier too. I’m not afraid to cut and work on my truck.

Thats awesome! How hard was it getting them mounted in the rear?

Hard and a pain. Had to make new brackets. The rear seat brackets I made mount to the oem holes provided. I had to mount the front seat mounts to the front raised lip of under seat storage area. It’s reinforced now. Capet covers it nice. The back seat under seat cubbies are pretty much rendered useless. I had the driver side already covered when I chipped my truck in half I had to lose that space to fit the oem fuel tank back under the truck. Few pics. It don’t show the reinforcement I added inside the cubby. I guess I didn’t snap a out and it’s all covered now.

It looks really nice! I think I'm going to start looking for a set of seats and once the kids are out of car seats (which won't be for awhile) swap them in and do a front center console swap.

Yep. That’s what I did. Added my front console all at the same time.
