Yeah you lose the center console and have to relocate your parking brake but It's definitely worth the price to try especially since the wife and I are considering having a 4th so an extra seat keeps my away from a third row off road longer

Ah bench seat. What are the plans for the parking brake? Going to put it in the dash like the Autos?

Looking forward to it. I remember a thread a while back where a few people seemed to agree it would be possible, but then nobody got around to actually trying it out.

So it's confirmed a bench seat from a hardbody bolts in no problem*

* I live in florida which is very flat and this is strictly a fun truck for me so for no parking brake is disabled, but I will be either sliding it forward and extending the brake line or moving to the trucks stock position which is to the right of the steering wheel

How are the bench seats for comfort? Any mods needed to make it fit? How does the forward back adjustment work?

I like that. My parking brake doesn't work anyways. Too bad there isn't a leather bench to match the rear seats! (on mine at least)

The bracket was a direct fit no mods needed also the inside rear bucket seat mounts are the exact spots for the additional seat belt. I will be driving it the next few days to test comfort. the best thing so far is the rear leg room(the seat is significantly thinner because the back is unfinished ) I adjusted my seat with a similar lever to the buckets which is on the drivers side fairly easy to use goes just as close and far as the buckets, but all the way back is uncomfortable I fell as though I'm reaching for the peddles and I'm 6'1". All in all was worth the $50 so far we'll see how much it cost to relocate the parking brake

Got coils put in and t bars cranked will post pics tomorrow in the light of day to show it. you can see the difference clearly in the coils themselves. Also measurements before and after confirm exactly 1.5" of lift so I'm really happy so far.

So it's dirty and partly sanded but it's lifted. Also bench seat update it's nice and comfy and less claustrophobic than the buckets

so pulled everything apart some scratches on the bottom of the rotor and and a little bit of bent thin metal around the rotor some carved  out lug studs was the damage. so $12 from oreillys and new lug studs put on, put the parking brake back on crank down the lugs on the tire and everything runs great again
