Hey i'm looking for capitns chairs. i have a 60/40 split... if you are interested i'll buy your capints chirs and center console... or something like that

When you say 'bench seat from a 96...', do you mean a single bench seat (a la Regular Cabs) or a 60/40 split bench (actually a pair of buckets). All are interchangeable within the same era (97 and 96 are 'same era'). The single bench, however, uses fewer floorpan bolt holes than the buckets / 60-40's. If it's a single bench you're swapping, there'll be some hole plugging to do. If it's a 60-40 you're swapping, it's a straightforward 1-to-1 match...
