So last week my drivers seat came completely detached from the floor when I stopped a bit short at a light... It had been kinda wobbly for a while but I had left it be, now it's pretty much undriveable (trying to manage gas and clutch while the seat is rocking back and forth really sucks). The 'feet' on the seat where it bolts to the floor were all rusted out and I'll need at least some bits off a new seat (or some fabrication). looking at new parts it looks like this truck also came with bench seats, which I greatly prefer. Can I just get a bench seat and install it, or are there mounting considerations?

Different cab configs use different seat brackets. Standard cab, extended cab etc. 83-92 as long as they look like what you have.
