Yo Hunterausbronco,
Welcome to our Big Bronco Family!
Mount Info; "...The Broncos come equipped with both mounting capabilities, Bench and buckets. I just did this very swap from buckets to bench out of a 93 F150 XLT at the junk yard, it came with power dual lumbar, fold down arm rest, and dual cup holders for $45.00 in new condition. The mounting points for the bench are there under the carpet and they are plugged with rubber grommets. You do not have to tapped the holes either, the bolts that hold the buckets in place are self tapping, and they go in rather easy. The mounting points are made up of metal sleeves that are not threaded if never used and the self tapping bolts are easy to install. Just swap over the rubber plugs from the bench locations to the bucket locations and you are set.

You also use the same seat belt locations and you are going to have to use the seat belts from the bench. The belt plastic sleeves are molded differently, and will not point in the right direction. Everything is plug and play, down to the lumbar..."

I believe some 82 or 83 Broncos have 50/50 split bench seat and seatbelts for 3.
