So i just happened to come across a 2nd bench seat that is coming off a '04 ESV. I have a '03 ESV would it be as simple as a
swap to do this?? or is there modifications that need to be done...Im very curious now..

Also I am not the original owner but what comes standard for the 2nd row seating? are captain buckets seats more than
bench or vise versa?

The captains chairs can be swapped with the bench without issue, however the seat frames are different from the shorter wheel-based truck and the EXT/ESV models. The longer wheel-based versions have a flat frame while the short version has a step up in the frame to accommodate for the rear wheel well.

Usually depends on the condition, but somewhere between $200-$500. I just recently found a bench for mine off Craigslist for $200 in almost new condition.
