If you replace them with anything not fitted to the AU model, an insurance company may refuse to pay up after an accident. Depends on the insurance assessor. Later model seats do not fit into the ute without modifications to the seat rails. I was going to go this path but opted for repairing and recovering the factory seats.

I gave up looking as you need AU ute seats so they tip forward. I ended up ordering a set of leather seat trim and replaced the cloth seats.

Seems as though you went the right way cause seats and doors look really good-love black and blue :wink:
