Front seatbelts

Postby mouguluc » Thu May 25, 2017 9:10 am

So I bought a set of front seatbelts from LMC a couple years ago, and I finally went to install them, but they (the end that bolts to the floor) are a wee bit too long. Are crew front seatbelts specific to a dentside crew? If so, does anyone know where to take them to get shortened? Maybe an upholstery shop? Or is there something special about belts that you could never alter them?

I figured the rear stuff was special, but It never occurred to me that the front would be...
I am Mouguluc. Why? Because I can't figure out how to change it.

I have never had any reason to replace the seat belts in my trucks, so I can't say. I wouldn't think the are much different year to year, but I could be wrong. I have learned that just because a catalog says something will fit a specific vehicle, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is true.
I would think that an upholstery shop could alter them, but they may be one of those things that they don't want to touch because of liability.

That's been my experience with LMC. Things always seem to need modification. Nothing replaces genuine FoMoCo parts.
