super duty seats in OBS?

All i want to know is will they fit and look alright? i have a buddy who is parting out his super duty and i'm already getting the intercooler, but since the interior is the dark blue as is the seat i want the seat also if it will fit in my truck. Thanks guys

They'll fit, I've got some in mine. They're a few inches taller so you'll sit closer to the roof. None of the mounts are in the same place so you have to drill all new holes

All new holes in the floor, 12 of them. I used 1/2" grade 8 bolts with 3" square plates below the floorboard so the bolts wouldn't tear thru the sheetmetal.

12 holes? wow, my seat only has 4 bolts in it.. that's sounds like sorta a PITA, but i will do it if i like how the seat looks in the truck.

Mine only had 4 bolts too, it was a bench and I put in a 40/20/40 and each piece had to be bolted separate.

I think Ron wants to do this to match his console. But he wants 08 stuff.

He was asking me to help him find an 08 stearingwheel till he saw my SRS stearing wheel.

If I already have an OEM 40/20/40 will a newer one (read SD) fit, or will I still need to drill new holes? Assuming I can find new seats. I've been having a heck of a time. Apparently they go fast at the salvage yards.

By the sounds of it you will have to still drill the holes, our 40/20/40 seats attatch to a common piece of metal and then that is bolted down. Sounds to me like the Super Duty seats are bolted down indavidually. So maybe 2 holes will line up on the 40's ??? But i dont know

Actually, I didn't see much good of anything.
