Any of you throw a set of seats from a newer ram? or even from another truck? im looking for something straight forward. A nice bench/bucket seat would be nice.

Check bolt patterns and distances, it sounds like a doable swap!

idk what type of seats you have in there now, but i know like in my 85 d150 it was a full bench seat with four(4) bolts total. idk if any of the newer seats will swap over to something like mine; Im having to build custom brakets to use the existing wholes and ill have to drill four(4) more wholes cause im swapping over some bucket seats and installing a center console.

looks like they had the same cab style in 1981–1993
i don't know how much the seats changed after that

Im still looking for seats. I really like the style of seat in the Ford Lightning. Those are a bit too pricey for me though.
Right now i have a bench that has ripped to shreds vinyl. lol. Super thin foam and not very comfortable on long drives.
