    Help converting 2nd Row Captains to 2nd Row Bench in '03 Escalade.

    We are needing/wanting to convert our '03 Escalades 2nd row from Captains to a bench. I have some questions....
    #1 Is this possible and if so are the brackets the same for captains to bench?
    #2 What years of seat would work in my model?
    #3 Would a seat from a Yukon or Tahoe be compatible?

    Any tips or pointers would be appreciated!

    #1 Yes it is possible and the brackets are the same, not all of the plastic covers for the mounting bolts are the same though.
    #2 Any year of the same body style will work
    #3 Yes Tahoe or Yukon seats work however they don't have the heat option.
    It is also worth noting that the headrest are different in the earlier models. They have a short headrest about the same height as the third row seat and you won't be able to put the newer larger headrests on these seats.
    IMPORTANT : You MUST get a seat from a vehicle with the same wheelbase. Due to the location of the rear wheel well, the longer vehicles (ESV, suburban, Yukon XL) have a different frame on the second row seat and will not fit in the shorter vehicles.

    Only the escalade has the perforated leather inserts, so if you get a seat from a yukon or tahoe it will not have the exact same appearance. Previous poster also mentioned the heat option being hard to find on tahoes and yukons. I am actually looking to go the other way, I have a escalade bench (grey, heated, perforated) looking to swap for escalade grey captains. IM me if interested.
