That’s what I want to do to my truck but up here in NY it’s very rare to find anything that’s reusable
That's a very interesting idea! There's times it'd be good to be able to fold up the seats and put stuff in the floor (like yard trips!). I wonder how much bracketry he had to fabricate for this swap.

Finished bolting down the Tahoe rear seats this afternoon. It’s not too hard of a retrofit. The large seat on the driver side had one bolt hole that lined up, then I had to drill the rest. The smaller seat on the passenger side didn’t line up with any of the stock holes, so it took some measuring and drilling. I used grade 8 bolts with large fender washers to kinda spread the load out on the floor pan. I did have to use 2 short pieces of “1 square tubing as spacers for the two inner rear mounts. But now it’s pretty solid.

One of the “spacers” made from 1” tubing.

Here you go, I had to add the 1" square tubing on both inner rear seat mounts, the rest were just drilling holes where I needed bolts. I used pretty good size grade 8 nuts and bolts, and used the biggest fender washers I could find underneath the cab. These seats are nice, the fold down option is pretty useful.

There are plenty of times I bring a hand carry tool box, a plasma cutter or other tool in a case or boxes of stuff you don’t want to put in the bed

I got the brakes bled this morning with my vacuum bleeder, so now I have brakes again.

Since I have almost everything that I need for the conversion finally, I started cleaning the dually wheels. I will most likely still paint them, but they are cleaning up pretty nice surprisingly.
