Where can I get information about adding a jumpseat to my second row of captains chairs?

Asked by Feb 24, 2013 at 05:19 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Suburban LS 2500 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

Need to seat 8 instead of 7... 2001 Suburban 2500 with grey leather buckets, and I'd be interested to install a jumpseat or replace entirely with a bench. Every time I google, it leads me to these forums but I'm not sure where to start on my own search!

If a bench seat was an available option on your Suburban that might be the way to go. The seat mounting holes as well as the provisions for seatbelts might already be under the carpet. You might try ebay or your local junk yard for the seat. HTH. -Jim

I actually did this when we had our sixth child. I bought a middle row bench which matched the year, model, and interior according to my vin and yes, all the holes are for installing are already in the chassis under the carpet. My Chevy dealer would not install it but a custom car shop happily did.

We bought the front center jump seat just now on eBay! Looking for a tutorial/DIY on how to install now, if anyone can help. It's important to keep the captain's chairs in the second row due to how many carseats we have... Need easy access!

Maybe you can fasten them to the legs of the bucket seats and not bolt to the floor?

I know this is a year old, but did adding the front jump seat to the back captain's chairs work?

We put in the front where the old console was! Works FANTASTIC!
