Bump. I have a 96 that I have just bought a week ago a d its driver seat is full of cigarette burns. I have a line on some from a 97. Want to find out before I spend the money and then find out that they won't for whatever reason.

That would be the least of my worries, I am more concerned about the spacing of mount holes on the newer seats vs those in the older seat tracks.

IDK about the OP, if they got their seat issue resolved, but I have been in the boneyards abunch lately, and have seen some square bodys with what looked like factory buckets, some missing one or both thanks to other customers that beat me to these trucks ha ha one thing that was common was that those that had any part of a console in them, the consoles were busted up or at least had their lids missing.

I was gonna see about retro fitting seats out of something else into my 96, probably a 97-04 Dakota, until I found an NOS bottom seat cover that matches my truck on EPay, as the pass seat, back seats and for that matter, the seat back in mine look like they'd never been used.... and all that I had seen like mine in the junkyards were no better than what I have now, with many being alot worse actually....
and the foam and frame on mine are still actually in good shape.
I havent priced them in a junkyard yet, though I have bought seats for other vehicles from them in the not too distant past, but at least according to the 97-04 Dakota seat sets prices on Craigslist, it will wind up a cheaper fix in my case.

but being a mechanic for a living I now need to find an aftermarket slip on seat cover for it to protect them, hope to find something that fits these 60/40 ones

I've got to give this one a bump, because this is the whole reason I joined.

I have pretty limited tools and resources. If my old tracks can be bolted on to the new seats' frames, fine, but I don't have welding equipment or the budget to hire somebody to splice the hardware on.
