my 06 seat fix
I searched all over on what year seats fit in what truck and found nothing so I took a leap of faith. I bought some seats from a guy that were in a 2004.5. The material and foam is much better and lasts longer on the 05 and older trucks in my opinion. Here is what I had to do to make it work.
first, the drivers seat, I had to use the original 06 floor mounting bracket and hardware....four bolts take the seat off the floor bracket. if you do this all the original plugs line up including the plug for the seat plug for all the switches from the 04.5 seat as well as the seat belt sensor.
second, the center console, all the bolts line up but, you have to swap out the very bottom plastic storage liners. the liner from the 04.5 was too deep. so I took the liner out of the 06 and it lined right up and worked great.
third, the passengers seat, I changed nothing from the 04.5 frame or seat. I just had to take the airbag sensor off the 06 seat frame and put it on the 04.5 frame.
the rear seat needed absolutely nothing just unbolt and re-bolt.
hope this helps anyone else looking to do the same....they are so much more comfortable!
