Bucket seats info
« on: Nov 17, 2019, 08:57:06 AM »
Anyone got any recommendations for some bucket seats for a 1985 Toyota single cab pickup? Nothing that'll break the bank. Just some decent seats that will hold up. Wanting them because I want a center console instead of the bench seat.

If retaining leg room is necessary, the best fit will be bucket seats from SR5 stadard cab trucks, next will be any Toyota bucket seat from the 1st gen 4-runner, MR2s,and most other buckets from any Toyota from the '80's, as those will have the thinnest seat backs, from there bucket seats from X-cabs, and 4 Runners, up to 1st gen Tacoma's and 3rd gen 4 Runners.  Most import bucket seats from the '80's, '90's, and early '00's should work as well, as long as the outer seat rail bolt holes line up with the stock seat mounts, just be sure to measure the bottom seat height, as you can reduce headroom with thicker bucket seats.

I think Miata seats work to, theres a buncha old threads on this topic, you just need to dig back into the archives. Check out Pirate 4x4 to, I think theres a thread there
