I'd thought about doing this too but couldn't bring myself to punch holes in my roof. I also noticed when I placed the "feet" for the rack on the roof, no matter where I put them they wouldn't set flush. That's what turned me off to the whole thing. So what size plow is that for your truck and how does it do with it?

I'm going to fill the gaps with black caulking once i take the rack back off to paint it. It should fill those gaps and look a little better.

The plow is 6'9" and honestly, it's a beast. Daily driving with the plow sucks as I get way to much front end sag, but the truck has more then enough power

Seats look good, So why did they give you a hard time getting installed?

So how did you swap... Bolt the new seats to the old brackets, or drill a new hole for the torx bolt?

The truck I got them from, I had to cut the brackets for the torx bolts because they were so tight, they stripped. A breaker bar didn't help and I didn't have an impact with me.

The brackets, I didn't think I could swap and they bolt holes didn't line up, but I managed to (somehow) get all 3 passenger ones on... but the driver side I could only get the front two. It was a huge hassle and sometimes took a hammer lmao. \_(ツ)_/

I picked up a set of these for $50, I'm thinking about picking up adapters for them?



I also took some nice photos of my truck.

I've had a leaky roof for a while, so hopefully I fixed it...






Also been doing some budget bodywork...








More to come soon.
