Seat recommendations for Fridges?

I am very preliminarily in looking into seats for my project,

I am looking at seats like the ones in my 2005 F150. I like the idea of the built in seat belts on the late model (shoulder harness), but not tat excited about the "bump" on the top of the seat that holds the belt.

I am not against a seat with a 5 point harness and a single roll bar behind the seat, but 5 points get hot when u wanna cruise with windows down?

CAn you post some pics of your seats, even if stock , as I have one of those still too.

Thanks Ryan

Thanks, as far as fit...as long as it will fit width ways I am open to any seat I will customize the mount. but the thought of a chevy seat in my FORD I am not sure bout that lol

By the way I am filling in the step in the cab to widen the floor, if that changes anyones recommendations

Thanks Ryan

Mine's from an '83 f150. With very little modification I mounted the original rails to the bottom of the seat. Because of this, it mounts to the floor with the original fastenings. It is very comfortable and I mounted lap belts through the floor with reinforcements added. I got it at a wrecking yard for 25.00 and it's in perfect shape. One of the easiest upgrades I've done to my '59.

Ya,
88-99 GM C-K truck benches fit perrfect, both width & stock bracket(foot) height & can be picked up on the cheap.
Don't think of em as a Chev, Ford or even a Dodge seat, they are all outsourced, generally to Lear corporation, even the ones in my VW Eurovan camper that was built in germany have Lear build tags on the under side of em. So sayin' that, think of em' as jet seats (heh heh). Luv to make a crack about 70's lear jet car audio equipment here, but really can't cuz truck seats generally have only 2 tracks, not 8 tracks
(heh heh...again).
