Default seat upgrades

hey guys,
so i was on ebay today looking at other 2002-2005 Rams and I was looking at the interior of a red srt/10 crew cab model and I was noticing the seats that they have in those things look pretty dang comfortable. Does anyone know if I can find those seats from a junked out one if i can take the old ones out and bolt those in their place? They look nice with the side bolsters and what not. I thought about modifying mine but knowing me something would go wrong and I would get pissed off and I would break something... Ideas? Oh and btw I have the bench seat up front.

You'd want to get the seat tracks as well. But they should fit as long as you don't have an extra wide center console between your seats.

Modifying your seats would prove very difficult. You would be much better off finding seats and bolting them in.

They will bolt right in, and I want some front seats out of one, but I'm not dropping 1200-1600 on a set.

Don't think he was looking for the covering so much as the extra side bolstering and padding (for performance handling) those seats offer.

I would be interested as well in knowing if we can take a newer seat and bolting them into our older trucks. I have a 2005 Laramie Quad Cab that I would love to upgrade to the Long Horn seats, if possible. Cost is a seperate topic, I'm just curious if the possibility would work.

Checking the cost first might have a bearing on the "possibility!"
