The nnbs interiors are wider than the nbs so you will have to "trim". A local shop put a nnbs duramax interior, driveline and frame on to a 72 chevy, but the had to cut and extend the body in a few different ways.IIRC the had to stretch the cab lenght ways 6' and widen the whole truck 5". Here are some pics.

^^ wow, thats impressive...I figured since the mounting holes were the same the seat width would be the same?

Don't do it unless you have a plan in motion and have it ready to do with fabricating materials and equipment....First thing comes to mind:
1. Seat belt tickets galore
2. Unsafe vehicle ticket
3. Truck towed because of #2

Have your old seats cleaned up then refined with katskinz covers. Or go to a junkyard and yank some seats that look in good shape...Or ebay some 99-02 seats.

Yeah its a really neat truck. If you closed your eyes while riding in it, you would swear that it was a rclb nnbs. Their was an ass of work put into this truck. That perticular shop has turned out some trick rides.

I think katskinz may be out of the question- I just looked them up and they seem pretty pricey...I am going to go tomorrow and pick them up, atleast to re-sell them..180 for the entire front seat section seems pretty good.

Someone might as well take those seats for free at that price. :think:

'03-06 seats are even comfier. :imo

I'd find a set of those if I were you. That's what I plan on doing, cause my current seats are kinda worn down from getting in and out of the truck over the past ten years.

What's the difference between them? I noticed no comfort difference going between my 01 or my 03 (which actually had seats from an 07 Classic in it). I still have my original power 03 seats in the shop attic, but they have a tear in the drivers seat, I thought about using them if/when I get Katzkins, but only for the power feature, never noticed anything different other than that.

i think the 03+ seats have more padding and a slightly different contour if im not mistaken...thats why they dont say seat covers from 99-07, they are always split 99-02 and 03+

I knew the covers were different, and the center section was stitched differently, but as far as comfort they both sat the same to me.

I may do this- However, I would love to keep the seats but i need to find a seat belt solution
I think this is kind of an old post but has anybody found a solution to the seatbelt I got a Suburban two tone leather tan Center black or gray on the outside but I have integrated seat belts and it doesn't if anybody found a solution please let me know also can I just remove that leather and put that leather on my seats that I have now that are cloths they're in good shape I would just have to make the seat belt area look good which I think it's doable cuz it's leather and you can cut and sew it anybody done that leather swap with a olds seat before it's a 06 suburban and a 05 crew cab Silverado. And if so is it possible to swap the seat power adjustments my 05 Silverado has the lower seat that moves but the Suburban has full power I just wish I could move the seat belt cut a slit in the pillar plastic and put the seat belt back there help please I need leather seats
