At the risk of bumping an old thread, I wanted to give my experience.
Just did this the other day, Scion XB seats into an 01 Taco. The difference I found in the procedure was that grinding the rivets (which hold the seat mounting pins) was unnecessary. The Tacoma roller bearing cages do NOT come out undamaged without grinding these rivets, but the stock roller bearing cages didn't fit the new upper track/lower Tacoma track interface.
I just ripped out the old cages (destroying them) and the Scion roller bearing cages slid in over the stock rivet heads (the Scion roller cages are shorter than the Taco roller cages). It fits and slides perfectly.

So the only grinding/welding was to the bump-stop nipples. Very easy, took an hour per seat. End result? You sit about 3 inches higher. I'm 5'10" and it feels great, much better view, no issues with the steering wheel or reaching the shifter, and of course very comfy.

If you're taller than me though, I'd recommend doing the Celica seat swap.

Edit: New Scion XB seats for $50 on Craigslist...new record?

We appreciate the extra info.

I'd definitely say that's a new record.
I got my TC seats for $60. However, that included a set of rear seats for the same TC.
I bet I could sell those on Ebay and break even. I'm just lazy. :p
