Aftermarket seats
« on: Jan 12, 2006, 08:47:06 PM »
My stock SR5 seats are dead. The bar at the bottom of the reclining back is killing me.
I'm considering aftermarkets. Is anybody running the Sporstsman seat from Mastercraft? Will it fit in a 1985 'Yota with the center console? Do they offer mounting brackets?

I think that's www.prpseats.com
They are cheaper, but not a suspension seat.

Not aftermarket, but I just put a set of '95 Honda civic buckets in my Toy. They leave plenty of room for a center console and they are set-up like racing buckets.
I just had to enlarge three of the mounting holes and drill one new hole to mount them. They are real comfortable, they raise your seat height and they are cheap or in my case free.

Corbeau has brackets for Toys. A small center console would probably fit

There is a picture of mine mounted in this thread. http://board.marlincrawler.com/index.php?topic=12880.0

fit would be tight in a STD cab. what you could do is have your seats custom done by bending the headrest 2" forward so you can mount them farther back.

I'm thinking of picking up the racing style seats that they have at Kragen right now on sale. $119 a seat after the mail in rebate! I had them in my 72 Firebird but I never went on any long drives so I dont know how comfortable they are. I think I will pick up just one and ride it around. If its comfy then I'll get another. If not then it will get sold to some ricer to put in his lowered primered honda civic :yupyup: I'll see if I can find a pick of what I am talking about

If they are the APC's, they are junk.  My friend has them in his Toy, they wear out fast.

 :screwy: Yessssss. I got the mounting brackets but they are universal brackets so they dont match up to the uneven floor on the yota. even tried taking the mount brackets off the stock seats and bolting them to the new ones :nope: Oh well, I'll take it back and just try and find some Toy buckets

In my stockpile fo parts for "that buildup commin sometime in the future", I have a pair of leather buckets out of an Eclipse GSX, the turbo AWD model. They have deep insets and wings on the sides and lower part, like a racing seat. They are manual, and they tilt. Check out the local junkyard for a pair, Integra seats work out well also. Look for GSR seats out of GSR Integras. They are almost always leather and they have big wings on the sides too. I have a few ricer friends, and one of them decided he like the APC seats better, and sold me his old seats for $25. Can't complain, they are comfortable as can be, and yes, they fit the fat guys too.
