    Thought I'd share this for those looking for an option for modern bucket seats. These are TMI Interiors universal bucket seats. They make tracks that allow them to bolt directly to the factory bucket seat holes. Actually they make brackets for almost any Mopar. Lucky for me, they did the interior on a Duster for SEMA a few years ago so they had the pattern to make the cover for the back seat. I didn't realize it until I got them installed, but they actually match the factory door panel pattern really well. The seats are really comfortable and you can see the added bolstering which keeps you from sliding out like original buckets do.

      Nice to see someone installed them. What are your thoughts for comfort? I'd like something more supportive than stock, but I'm 6'2 and 300 lbs and my car is a manual so it can be subjective for me. Any dimensions of the seats?

      I think they are very comfortable. Lots of positions for the back and the slides have much more adjustment than stock. I'm 6', 200lb so they may be a little tight for you - no disrespect. My car is also manual and no problems there. I can actually put the seat so far back I can't reach the pedals. They have dimensions on their website.

        Can I ask how much that ran you, price wise?

        I just bought a pair of front tmi from summit racing and they were 800.99! That's without the floor brackets. Not sure how much the back seat cover would add but the a body specific mounting brackets are 122.00 a piece.

        I was all in for around $1700. That’s seats, sliders, brackets, and rear covers. You can get fronts cheaper from summit, but they were concerned the vinyl wouldn’t match front to back. These were all made with same vinyl so it was a guaranteed match. Took about 8 weeks to get them. Considering the cost to redo a factory buckets with new foam, covers, back plastic, and still having no bolsters, this was a no brained for me.

        Thanks for the response and no offense taken. I could easily afford to loose 1/3 of me and am trying to do so.

          I've been eyeing tmi seats for awhile now. Glad to see someone with some install pictures. Not many mopars on the internet with these installed. They look great and dont look out of place. They have a high back set I'm thinking on purchasing.

            My biggest concern was I didn’t want them looking out of place. Take some careful measurements because I think the high backs, may be too high. Of course, it’s your car and preference.

              Hey I bought the seats but I didn't feel like spending the extra 300 on the brackets that I thought I could make myself, any chance you took a picture of them out of the car?

                I'm going to see about ordering a set in either black with red stitching or just all red to do my 64 valiant convertible. I have an account with TMI, I asked about the black, said 10 week wait. I'm going to see if they can do matching rear if I send them the old covers

                  Now I have to wait 10+ weeks to get them! They are backed up in their production.

                    Aren’t they comfy? I love mine. These seats combined with all my suspension upgrades, it doesn’t feel like a 50 year old car anymore.

                    Thread is a few months old...but those using these TMI interiors, what were your options for seat belts, front and back?

                        I bought seat belts from Mopar Seat Belts: Replacement Seat Belts. I clearly don't care about OE correctness and these seemed to be pretty good so I bought them. They work fine and I don't have any complaints except maybe the back ones are really long.

                          thinking about pulling the trigger in these for my 67 barracuda.

                          is the duster rear seat different than 67 barracuda notchback? Look very similar, probabaly close enough that an upholstery place could make it work?

                          I'm not a good resource to answer that question. I had a 67 notch years ago, but never compared rear seats side by side with the Duster. Worse case, you can get matching material from them and bring it to a local upholstery shop like @Cudabnu did above.
