    Default Going from Captains chairs to 60/40 split bench


    I recently upgraded and bought a 2005 GMC Yukon XL. The vehicle had low miles so I bought even though I prefer the bench over the captains chairs. I found a 60/40 split bench on craigslist and the seat leather was in good condition.

    Problem was, I didn't install the seat after a couple of weeks, and when I finally did install, I noticed that the buckles were missing. I went to the dealer and tried to purchase a set, but it seems the model years must have changed a little.

    I think the 60/40 second row is from a 2003, maybe 2004. If anyone who has this model year Burb, if you could send me a pic of the seat tracks, and the buckles, I'd appreciate it. On top of acquiring the buckles, I need to figure out what trim pieces match up to my rigs interior color.

    My center seat appears to be lap belt only. And perhaps 2003 and newer have shoulder restraint in the middle seat? Can anyone confirm?

    My 03 had a lap belt on the center. Good luck finding belts. I had a bad mechanism on one of mine and no one would sell me one. Luckily, my brother works for the company that made them and got me a set for free.
