buckets into a bench seat configured 97 single cab?

Anyone have any success in doing this? What exactly has to be done? I would prefer to use stock Nissan hardbody seats and a center console from an extra cab.

thanks

Good luck with finding tan buckets.

I've seen plenty of gray, but never a tan bucket, I'm not even sure they made tan buckets.

my donor truck has nice looking maroon buckets (89 hb) but does anyone know how they sit. will the seat back be too far forward in a single cab?

i have put the bickets in a single cab..

with the seat all the way back the back is fairly straight but if you pull the seat forward a little it is not too bad..

Maybe you can check out different years too. I have 97 recliner seats in mine. I had to use my 720 brackets-the 97 brackets were taller in the front. The front seat bolts fit the brakets perfectly,but I had to drill the brackets for the rear seat bolts. That was all I had to do, so some other year D21 seats may fit yours fine.
Check out some of the U-Pick/Pull-It or similar lots if any are around you. I found mine for $17 each.

I should have been clearer on this.. The truck I have now is a bench seat 1997. I would get the seats from a later 96-97 hardbody

any bucket seat from 86.5-97 HB or 86.5-95 pathfinder will bolt right in. no drilling is needed. my seats are all the way back and sit very comfortably. I would look for the seats that leg support is adjustable. If I get a chance I will post pics. I also put a center console from a ford taurus 95ish yr which has a nice and good height for an arm rest with the option of a jump seat.
