Seat Swaps : Retrofit Adapter Brackets - New Seats in Old Vehicles

Once a vehicle gets to a certain age finding original replacement seats for it can be a bit tricky. On rare occasion newer seats will be a direct bolt-in, as seen in the case of many Ram generations. What if there are no direct bolt in swaps? Grassroots movements solve this. Often times a specialty company will fulfill the requests of the market by creating an "adaptor bracket", "swap bracket", or other similarly named product. These products all answer the same question:

"How can we bolt new seats in an old vehicle without drilling through the floorboard?"

Below is a list of known adaptor brackets and their uses.

Planted Seat Brackets offers brackets for a wide array of vehicles. These aren't intended to swap a specific set of seats in, they are made to turn your typically uneven floorboard into a flat and easily accessible platform for mounting aftermarket seats. Using those brackets and an OEM Seat with nice flat sliders (similar to how aftermarket seats work) you can bolt-in a large selection of seats into just about anything.
