• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Front Bucket Seats


I know this topic has had some mileage on it, but was looking to see if there are any updated comments.

I have a 77 SII, 196, T-19, D20, D44 front and back, 2 " lift and 31's. Basically stock. I have a pair of 79 stock SII high back buckets in right now, but am looking for a more comfortable seat.

I read before where someone threw in some seats out of a late model GTO. Anyone have any newer suggestions on buckets? The high back's that I have in there right now are a bit "dated" as they have no side to side snug. Looking for seats that have the raised sides of the seat (if I am saying it correctly).

Any suggestions would help. Thanks,
Corbeau makes seats and makes transition brackets for the Scout bases.

Anything else will need custom fab to make the sliders work to the stock bases.

I used 06' cobalt SS seats (same as impala) and the sliders are about 3" wider than the stock bases. I cut the bases down 2" and made a 2" angle iron frame to bolt the sliders to after I cut all the stock gm mounts off the sliders.

You can make anything work go to the junk yard and find some seats you like.
