Default 4 Bucket Seat with Harnesses

Trying to put some thought into the interior of my truck. I'v finally decided it needs a cage. Figuring I might ditch some weight at the same time. Has anyone ever set their crew cab up with 4 race buckets and harnesses? Or am I better off keeping the stock rear seat and pulling it at the track?

I don't need some crazy suspension seats or anything. Just curious what people are doing for seats. I want something fairly comfortable. No prerunners in this area to compare with haha.

haha I know the buckets should be lower profile than the bench. Are guys offsetting the rear seats towards the middle? I guess I just haven;t seen it and wondered about layouts etc.

Ive seen the offset towards the middle, converting to just a single middle seat and 2 seats behind the seats like normal and a custom full length center console. Never seen it with say, aluminum kirkey but alot of off road guys have gone away from suspension seats and now run solid based seats much like the kirkey. Beards and PRP's are popular for that. They usually have more foam than the drag race version Kirkey obviously for more give.

I would recommend just doing kirkey's in the front and then pull the rear seats before you hit the track. My truck is a single cab so i will just do both kirkey seats.

What degree of layback are most people going with? Does it matter if your a taller guy versus a shorter guy?
