seat removal

I have a 1978 f150 2wd with a damaged drivers side bench seat. I have thought about doing a re-upholstery but it will be cheaper to switch out seats from a junk yard. I know that up to a 96 will fit in my truck but I looked under the seat and saw the bolts that bolt down to the cab, My question is, is that all you have to take out to remove the seats or am i just making it harder to do in my head?

That is all you need to do. It is easier to remove if you take the seat back off first. That is just two pins. It is also easier to remove if you have someone on the other end of the seat. It's not heavy, just awkward.

Welcome Union Bubba,,, I had a rear seat out of a 96 CC in my 66 F250,,, the seat rails are the same width,, the difference is the studs, I heated them up on the 96 and popped em out and then used a piece of 1 1/2"x 1 1/2" square stock as a spacer between the seat and the rail, because my seat adjustet would hit it,, not sure on the 78's but it also gained me a better seat position anyways. I really thought that was awesome on mine,,, 30 years later, and still the same rail width,, cool.

Dont forget to pull the seatbelts out from between the back and the seat bottom before you start lifting the seat out or you'll be cussing.............And, might not hurt to soak the threads on the bolts with some good penetrating oil a day or so before you start pulling it out..................Its that easy!!!!!!!
