    Will a rear split seat from a 2018 Ram, fit and is it swappable into a 2011 1500 which has a full bench seat?

    I understand the total width would be the same, and that there should be center holes for the middle seat brace..... but not sure if the depth is the same or deeper, or if the rear split version has the ability to recline at all.

    I appreciate you chiming in with any info on this.

    Should fit if the split Seat is coming out of the same type Cab. Only ones that recline I believe are the Mega cab seats and it will not work in a crew cab. Bolt holes should all be there under the carpet and tape!!

    Thanks for your response. That's what I've been thinking to this point. Wondering of anyone out there has actually done the swap with any issues etc

    I have never done it personally but have read a lot of threads where people upgrade their base interior seat to higher end leather seats which mean a rear split seat no problems.
