I have found that the front seats out of a late model lexus are perfect for Trifives. because they have the basic design of the front buckets from a 66 chevelle with a lot of extra padding, plus the headrest can be removed and they are then low backs , plus each seat has full funcion electric control on the lower side of each seat drivers and passengers,

I got a set for my 57 and they have every thing, and the best part is only 2 wires to hook them up a positive and negative.

bucket seats

How did you mount the seats. Did you use the original bosses or just drill new holes in the floor? Were the seats high enough.

Sorry to say I have not mounted them yet, But I am sure it will be no problem, I will just make an adapter if needed.

Do your seats have front vertical and rear vertical for height adjustment? If so, how did you get that to work? I can get front/back, recline and lumbar but can't get the height adjustment to work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

95 to 99 Tahoe, Silverado, Suburban seats without the headrests are perfect.
They have a chunky square look that matches the car really well, in my opinion.



There are two types of power tracks. You want the aluminum ones.
They are flat and all I did was use different thickness billet aluminum to make the mounts to match the step in the floor where they mount.
I even used two of the stock mounting holes for the outside bracket.

Those are the type of seats I'm thinking about putting in my 55 pickup. I see those are the version with the heated seats. Did you keep the heated seat function? If so, how difficult was it to hook up? I was wanting ones with heated seats, but I'm not sure if that option can be kept or not. bowtie-trifive
