Yeah, I've got buckets and just want to replace the center console with a console/fold up seat. Sveral companies out there make them, I think around the $200 range, and can match the color of your interior. I would then also get a center seat belt and bolt it to where the drivers/passenger are now.

I want to start this off by saying juice, your bronco is awesome! i love your soft top, ok, with that out of the way, do you know a good place to find a bench seat for my bronco, or should i just go look around on the internet for one? i've found one in jc whittney, but it's like 700 bucks, and i'm kinda hopin for a little cheaper, ya know?

Goto Salesco.com they got tons of bench and bucket seats and they are some of the lowest prices I've found. Im looking at swapping my buckets and console for a bench too. I love the Texas sport bench they have.

Yes, Bronco floorpans have provision for bench seats exactly like F-series, whose floorpans have provision for buckets. My '83 and '82 Bronco bodies had the mounting nuts, but I'll check the '96 next week to be sure.

As a general rule, you can expect EVERYTHING forward of the rear edge of the door to be identical between Broncos & pickups.

Yep - I looked at the '96 floor today, and it has the hard points for a bench seat, too. They aren't threaded because the bolts cut their own threads. The captain's chairs (orange) use the 2 studs in the rear and the 2 holes in front. The bench (green) uses the 2 unthreaded holes near the doorway, but inboard of the cpt.chr. points.
