Nothing good is easy.

Rip out the old seat, go to pick and pull, find a nice seat you like out of a high end car, pay the few $$ for it, go home, drill some holes, and install it.

And forget any of that RV crap. It's nothing but over priced crap.

Obviously you didn't read the OP, even my second option entails some welding and floor drilling. Car and PU seats aren't tall enough. The only real option without redrilling would be an air seat out of a semi. Not everyone can do the fabrication that you do.

For the most part I agree, the particular item I pointed to is well made. I don't recommend crap.

Nice find, the swivel base is cool. Will look around my local wrecking yards for something similar.
back in the early 80's I worked for a Gelcoat company in Fort Smith AR.... our primary plant was in Elkhart, apparently they were putting a lot of fiberglass on something!

Supplied a lot of Gelcoat for Ranger Boats in Flippin AR
and a lot went to Lasco, (showers & tubs) but I don't recall where they were located.
PolyStyrene and Acetone fumes made me forget a lot

Tango...I went that route, I searched high & low for a used BENNINGTON PONTOON seat as there was one at the dock where we kept our boat and I fell madly in love with any seat off that boat.

Brand new them suckers go for big $$$$$$ and used were non-existant.

Nat, I like your concept and if we lived or were anywhere close by you we would gladly stop by and have you place whatever seat we choose into the drivers area.

Hubby can weld, but he doesn't own one and is real skittish about borrowing. Seems he's had to replace something he borrowed after it **** the bed when he was using and is a little leary about going that rout again with out the owner present....and no, he has already had to buy quite a few new tools to replace the dinosaurs that went extinct when putting them to the challenge of a bus.

Thanks EastCoast for reiterating my original question.

Having been a trucker with almost 2 million miles experience I've learned it's worth the extra money to have a good back and shoulders after the trip is done. Just my opinion after all those years of driving.
