my other '87 has the same version you have in red, mine are grey. they are more comfortable because of the adjustability.

I like the 4Runners first gens with vynil seats and door panels. Yours has a perfect interior, I love it!

I'm using these Tiburon seats currently. If I could afford it I would have some nice Recaro Experts.

i took the early 90'ish prelude seats from the Trekker and put them in the 4runner. no pics of the brackets I made for the rear inside and outside mounts but they are pretty much bend some flat stock to work
The prelude seats have been great due to the adjustments they have
I believe 2nd gen 4runner mounting locations are pretty dang close to 1st gen 4runner and 2nd gen trucks
added links to the two post quotes because it looks like the attachments from the quotes may or may not show up

Several years ago I installed a set of 96'ish Prelude seats in the Trekker. I had replaced those with a set of suspension seats. Attempted to sell the Prelude seats and even tried to give them away..No luck, they sat in the garage for a few years. They are still in great shape so I busted out the tape measure.
busted out the tape measure...front mounts were 16.75" on the 4Runner seat

hmmm...Prelude seat front mounts are 16.75"

i throw the seats in the 4Runner to test fit..the inside mount for the prelude mount of course hits the seat belt mount causing it to cock the seat at the wrong angle

Attachment 112072
At first i thought about picking up some camry or corolla latches that would mount to the seat rail similar to the prelude latch. I was gonna have to make a mount to the inside rear corner any way, so I cut that sucker off and mount the seatAttachment 112073
pretty cool that the stock front mounts work perfect
outside rear mount will get extended tomorrow with some flat stock. Inside rear should be a simple 'L' bracket.
Attachment 112074
it will end up being bolt in install..
Not a perfect match but i think it will work
Attachment 112075
Attachment 112076
I will be able to finish the install in the morning
