Probably trade my bench seat for bucket seats or if I can find some in eBay, (light titanium leather). raulc63@yahoo.com

Default Bench seat needed

I have a 2006 Chevy Suburban LTZ with Medium Gray leather interior seats. I have bucket seats in the second row, but I am needing a bench seat to place as my second row. (a 60/40 would be fine as well)

Does anyone out there have one for sale or know where I can get one????

Please contact me via email @ richardmay1974@yahoo.com

Thanks in advance and don't forget to wear your Bowtie....

Welcome to the forum.

I think a 70/30 is the only option due to the way the seat tumbles and folds to allow entry to third row.

I'm working out a deal on 08 burb with second row buckets and I want the bench. I'm sure the year difference is no big deal. I'm in South Dakota.

Default Removal of Bench Seat

I have removed the 60 portion of my 2nd row bench seat in my 07 Suburban. Having 3 young ones, we keep 1 in the remaining 40 portion of the bench, and 2 in the 3rd row, leaving the floor open. Removal of the bench is easy, as long as you have help to get it out. There are 6-8 bolts and a plug for the 'fold and tumble' option. When you remove the false floor panel, and find the bolts and plugs, it will remove the seat, bracket, springs, motor, etc all as one piece. I would love to trade this for a bucket seat...Black leather, like new, SW Ohio. In the meantime (now 3 years) it's been in my basement, the open floor is excellent, the false floor piece covers the bolts and access through the side door is huge w/o that giant always folded up seat that blocks the driver seat from sliding back easily!!

Exclamation Replacing bench seat with bucket seats in 2008 Suburban

I'm looking to replace our second row bench seat with bucket seats. It's for an 08 Suburban, Titanium leather. I've done research on this, called a dealership and everything. Yes, you can replace them. Super easy. All you need are the bucket seats, you can order the leather covers from any Chevy or GMC dealership so it doesn't matter if you find cloth or the wrong color leather. You can also order the bolts/parts you need to install the new bucket seats since obviously the bolt locations are slightly different than the bench. You can order the carpet cover piece that matches the bucket seating as well. If anyone has bucket seats they would like to get rid of, we would gladly trade our bench seat for them. THANKS!

I have a black leather bench out of a 2007 Suburban, in perfect shape. Would love to trade for your black leather bucket seat. The swap is easy - mine is also power fold and tumble, so it will plug right in! Email me at drewmang@gmail.com and see if we can figure it out - I am in Cincinnati, but work in logistics, so maybe shipping is an option!
