I just picked up a 47 truck seat that I want to weld the bottom tubes on and use it for my rear seat in my 50 burb.

1. Is there anybody out there that reproduces these seats that would sell me the
three bent tubes so I can weld them on myself.

2. If I have to make these tubes, what is the measurement of the space between floor and seat frame on an original seat.

Thanks fellas.

Joe at Dead Zone Truck Parts makes the rear seat frame for the AD Suburban.

The bottom of the seat actually tilts back. It's not parallel to the floor.

Thanks for the info guys. I tried putting it in and it seems it is too large at 56 inches. What width was the original back seat? I may have to chop this one up.

From where to where on the frame do you want a measurement?

The widest point on frame assembly seat-base and top-back?

Tim will take care of you.

PM me, or post again, if you need any measurements. I'll wait for the hard rain to stop.
