    Default 1989 Four Door Interior and rear door

    Hello. I am new to this great site. After observing for quite some time, I finally joined, because I bought my first four door Bronco. I was able to drive it home, today, without breaking down! It is a 1989 one ton Metropolitan. It is not a rust bucket, runs great and will make a great beach vehicle. It does need a bunch of work.

    Because I am a rookie, I have a lot of questions.

    My first question is regarding the interior. My second row bench seats do not fold down. I would like to replace them with a split bench that folds down. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding what are the best replacement seats: fits the best and are easy to install. Removable would be great.

    My second question is regarding the rear doors. I may need to replace the right rear door. Are these rear doors just crew cab doors from a 350 pickup?

    Thanks in advance for the answers to the questions I will be posting.

    Pics or Traveler bans you for being non conforming.........................





    Yes, doors are crew cab rear.. as far as rear seats, I would suggest looking at SUV's that have the seats you want, and then seeing how to fit them.

    I am going to replace mine with 92-94 SUburban seats, but that doesn't mean they are a direct bolt in swapu

    Thanks Blackdog and thanks for the warning. I will post pics shortly. I just brought it home today and the wife broke the digital camera. You may still be able to see the truck on Ebay and North Jersey Craigslist.

    After looking at your ebay pics, you have a 60/40 bench so it should fold down. Maybe it's just broken.

    Hello Nestevec and thanks for the welcome. I have not yet had a chance to play with the seat. Hence, you may be right. The previous owner said it did not fold.

    The seat itself looks more like an 80/20 seat. The '20' is on the passenger side and it does move or fold. Unfortunately, the damage to the right rear door is pushed up against the seat, not allowing this seat to move.

    I hope to have the vehicle in the shop tomorrow. I want to start digging into the 'to do' list and I do hope you are right.

    Sorry guys, I still don't have photos. I dropped the truck off at my buddies shop and forgot to take pictures.

    I am looking to buy a replacment tailgate and a full soft top. I hear they are hard to find. If any one has a lead, please let me know.

    There is a soft top for sale on Craigslist, Corpus Christi. I don't know if is a full size or tonneau style. I am waiting for a reply. If anyone lives close to that area and does not want it, let me know. If I could get someone to check it out that would be great. I wouldn't be comfortable just sending a guy a check and hoping for the top in the mail.

    My email address is Lewis_Midlarsky@Progessive.com

    I went Canvas back on my mine.. and love every minute of it.. except for when i take it off, because I am loading the truck, and forget to bring it with me.. today was a rather chilly drive home....

    Fortunately it is only 3 blocks away, its the hour of unloading I am not looking forward to.. in the dark.. in the cold...

    I know I know, take a midol and get on it...

    Can you fit anyone in the third seat with your top?

    A Bronco-type t/g? I have a few.



    The other one is totally disassembled, and I don't have pics of it yet. It's in slighty better condition cosmetically.

    If they are vertically challenged or in a Car seat, yes.

    But since I have 2 in car seats.. and either the wife has serious bon bon problem, or she is creating the need for a third car seat, I will be okay for a while.

    If... I put a roll cage back there, with bows (sorta) to support it to its fullest, I think it would be okay with a normal size person.
