08 - Switching Captains Chairs to Bench Seating?
My sister is now pregnant with her 5th child :gasp:and she and her husband own a 2008 Suburban XLT. The only problem is that they have the captain's chairs in the second row and it looks like they could use a little extra seating with all of these children. Has anyone swapped out the captain's chairs for a second row bench? I'm just looking to see how tough this job might be and what would be needed. I'm about to run through some old threads quick and see if I can find anything but any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Looking for Black Bucket Seat trade near Charlotte NC
Hi, thanks for posting! That sounds great but we're pretty far apart (I guess about 12 hours driving) as I'm just outside of Charlotte NC. I'd really prefer that we can get together and look the seats over in person, and guessing shipping would cost quite a bit. If we don't have any luck in the next month or so, I'll reach back out and see if your buckets are still available. My Suburban is a 2012 but it was actually manufactured in very late 2011 (December). I think the swap would still work just fine, but thought I'd mention that. Thanks!
