They did, EF or EL buckets will fit - IIRC the threaded holes will be there, probably under carpet or may have blanks fitted. I don't think the floorpan differed between floor and column shift.

all the holes and everything are there its jst you need xd/xe or xf rails but the ef/el seats fit in there perfectly.the rails on the ef/el are different where you there are screwed to the floor pan.

Unfortunately not correct though.

You don't use the early x series rails, you just use the complete set, eg take out the bench seat completely.

Then bolt in ef/el bucketseats and rails.

Well, what's mentioned above, and what we've advised you earlier in this thread.

ef / el buckets will NOT bolt straight in to a xh ute, I just tried it today, the runner on the side closest to the door will bolt straight up, but the runner on the trans tunnel side is totally different, not even close to fitting.

and yes, if you look under the carpet, the bolt holes are there on the trans tunnel side.
