Yeah it is just as easy now to reach the back seat. Passengers in back say they even have more room now. And yeah I would have preferred those 40-20-40 seats our trucks have but no luck finding any. I haven't had any issues with things falling threw the seat cracks yet but I'm more than sure I will pretty soon haha

The install looks great. Colors, shmullers...

What kind of seat bolts did you use? I'm currently installing '97-'02 Expedition seats into my '96 and want those seat tracks in there solid (worse case scenario).

Thanks 96f150 EB I really like them! Um we just used a longer bolt with washers in and outside the truck with locking nuts! And theyve started in the same place for the part 2 weeks with no problems!

I presume you went stainless steel- all bolts and fasteners?

My drivers side bag is blown out too, passenger works fine but I'm thinking about recovering it and just eliminating the bags when I do.

theres too much sag in the seat back for me... I need lower back support so I'll probably try my best to fix them. found an older post about the air bag problem. I will probably fix the main supports b/c I know i felt one of them give way... add some extra padding and slip the cover back over it. My seat is in good enough shape that I don't need to recover at all...

Might try a generic lumbar bag like this...

I bet there is a way to modify it so that the hose attaches to the pump and not the hand operated bulb...
