    Looks good. the rear buckets out of a tahoe/burban should pretty much bolt in (well new holes drilled that is) since the floor pan is virtually identical in them. and in reality you could put in the buckets out of the front of a Silvy. those would have the arm rest so nobody accidentally puts thier arm thru those subs... i have done a few custom upholstery jobs. Looks good to me!

    I agree with what most of the others are saying. It looks great and definitely came out much better than I thought it would. Nice job!

    The tahoe second row seats actually do bolt right up, but I couldn't find any in the charcoal fabric that I had. Once I graduate from high school in a month or so I'm going to be able to work full time and get all of my seats redone in black viynl and do a custom fiberglass console from the dash all the way back.

    It looks a lot better then I thought it would. I have buckets in my crew cab. I've had them for almost two years. I will be switching to the Tahoe Buckets when I body drop my crew cab though. They recline and they have arm rests. I just used two 40 sections and modified the bracket for the other bucket. The Buckets that will bolt up are tahoes, Escalades, (denali's & Yukon's I think). Theres a guy on another forum who tried installing suburban seats in his 1500 crew cab and they didn't work, but there was a guy who installed Suburban Buckets in his 2500 Silverado and everything went smoothly. So the floor pans are different in them. I also considered using front seats out of another truck, but I saw it in person and the seats are too tall for the back since the floor raises up to stay level with the front seats. They would work and look good if you could make new brackets. You'll have to modify the brackets anyway to get them to even bolt up. When I get done doing my suspension work i'm going to build a console from the dash to the back wall with 2 AQ HDC312's in it at the back.

    On a side note. I want your black steel wheels so bad. I can't find any around here.

    Thanks! I have yet to see another crew cab besides this black and red candy one on here that is going to be dropped. I knew that buckets from a Tahoe or Yukon would fit, but I looked all over eBay and craigslist, but could only find leather. I like the idea of your console. I really wish I went with a 15" Fi BTL on an AQ 2200D. These two CVX 12's take up too much room and the box I have them in is a little more than half of the specs for ported. Also, on my wheels, I took sandpaper to the stock chrome 17" wheels and painted them black and put on a satin clear coat. Took less than $10.

    I like the look of the buckets in the back of the crew cab. Those subs do take up a bunch of room though. I was thinking it would look like a hack job after I read the first post. Turned out nice.
