    Can you put bucket seats in an early 90's GMC topkick box truck? Most come with a bench seat and I think that the bucket seats that have armrests are more comfortable... they provide better comfort than the bench seat...

    I don’t see why you couldn’t. If it has air brakes a big truck seat could even work.

    It might need some custom mounting though.

    You need low base seats like this. It is all the way up in the picture.

    I used to drive a 1985 topkick that had
    Factory bucket seats. It was a tractor, but I think the cabs are the same.

    1985 was a different body style than the OP’s thinking of.

    Hardcoriest of the most hardcore drivers I know drove a '93 Topkick with a UPS package car jump seat as the driver's seat. Truck had a 427 gas with a 5x4 tranny.

    Topkick is same cab as the Chevy and GMC 1500-3500 pickups. Find buckets in a junk pickup reupholster if needed and swap ‘em in.

    Just like the Ford F600-750 are the same cabs as F150-350 of that vintage too.
