for 2002 Tacoma, what other years would be a direct bolt-in replacement?
I have the 60/40 split with the armrest and I hate it. I want a standard
bucket so I can then add a decent center console that will hold CDs and a
decent amount of crap.
Any single bucket out of an '01 - '04 Taco will *definitely* be a direct bolt-in. Single buckets from other Tacos ('95.5+) will *probably* be a direct bolt-in. I'm not 100% certain the bolting scheme was identical for 95.5-00 and 01-04.
Swapping in an OEM driver's bucket from another Toyota of the same vintage (4Runner, Celica, Camry, Corolla) will be a '3 out of 4' bolt-in (in the best case; 2 out of 4 otherwise).
NOTE: There's another approach that's been done. Your driver's-side '60' is in fact a fat / extended single bucket. You could get an upholstery shop to chop it down into a narrow bucket, then just go looking for a console.
