If you're looking for completely accurate replacements, Dennis Carpenter has them, the JBG and LMC ones have snap in speaker grilles while the DC ones are dead on with the originals

I've heard jbgy is really good but I've never used them yet

I found a pair already detached at the junkyard that are in better shape than mine and black. I may buy those and clean em up instead. I bet I can get em for 30 bucks

Thumbs up Junkyard dawg

I think in going to buy 05 Ford 500 seats I found at the yard. The hole you see is cause I pulled the edge up to see if it's really leather. The edges were, the ass part is not. I don't like the back bench not matching the front seats but there 150 bucks


This is some Googled pics that show what the whole seat looks like




Be nice to be able to adjust em too. I like lumbar support



I also saw a expidition or maybe explorer over head console I think could fit pretty easily




Then I drove around the old train track and the Colorado River since the junk yard is close

Got the Ford 500 junk yard seats. Black leather. Exactly the shit I said I would not do but they looked too nice to pass up. So how does one wire power seats? Time to teach myself to do this I guess

Do any of your guys have a corded retractable light under the hood? I found a hood with one attached to it for 30 bucks. I would think it would be plug and play but I've never seen one before. I think it's stock because it is stamped ford

I pulled one from an F-series at a JY a few years ago but have not installed it yet. Should be a simple install.

I know what you mean, I'm doin' things to mine I didn't plan on too! I think the seats will look nice in there. Let us know how they mount up and how the wiring goes. I would think you just need a fused power wire to hook it up, but I've never done it either.

Both my truck and my dad's have them, I would assume they put the one wire plug in all the stock wiring harnesses just in case

I just think it's a neat option. I've seen those lights on older Chevys before.

I hurt my back so this slow refurb will be even slower now. When I do the seats I'll take a buncha pics. Im thinking of getting the same seat cover srwillis got for the back so it matches.

I like the looks of the back bumper on these years but there is nowhere to stand up on it besides the hitch. I think I may have found my "steps"...
