    i was given a set of nbs bucket/jumpseat setup. Wondering how hard the swap will be. Does the bottom framework transfer over ?

    The bottom framework does not transfer. There is going to be some modding involved with this swap.

    They look like the GMT900 seats to me, could be wrong though.

    I thought all NBS and newer truck seats had the seat belts built into the seat. I was also under the impression that most GM seat bases would interchange.

    I think it was just the GMT800s that had the seat belt in the seat. They must have did away with that stuff? I don't know, I have never set foot in a GMT900 or newer.

    just 800s had the seatbelt made in. im in the process now of getting the seats from a 2010 . its gona be a pretty easy swap. i already pre fabbed a bracket 2" longer in rear for center seat so i can use factory holes. once i get the seats out its looking like i can use the same holes there too with little modification .

    the pic i posted was just the style i was after; im getting the light gray seats. LKQ worked with me pretty good honestly.
