02 4Runner SR5 Front Seat Dimensions

Does anyone have the dimensions for the front seats of an 02 4Runner? I'm looking to swap some heated seats in, but Im many hours away from my 4Runner.

Looking mostly for height from base to top of headrest, and bracket dimensions.

I have a set of 02 seats in my 96 right now.

96-02 4Runner seats will all fit, some have heated seats (and switches)

All measurements approximate but darned close, sorry, I didn't have a metric tape measure.
Seat base to top of head rest at lowest position 3 feet
Overall seat height from floor to top of headrest 3 feet 3inches
dimensions middle of front seat mount bolt to middle of front seat mount bolt horizontal to the dash 1 foot 6 inches, middle of seat rail to middle of seat rail is about the same dimension
Dimensions middle of front outer seat mount bolt to middle of rear outer seat mount bolt 1 foot 5 1/2 inches
The widest section of the seat is 1 foot 10 inches. This is as important as height if you're trying to use something from not-a-4Runner

If you're trying to replace with a seat from another vehicle be aware of the inner rear seat mount- it's up on the side of the tunnel, not on the floor.
The front seat mounts are angled
When I used Mazda seats I used the old feet from the 4Runner's seat mount attached to a bracket that I then attached the footless new seat to.

From my build thread- mazda seats- note the rear foot mount on the tunnel
Original seat feets removed:

Everything got bolted together and installed in the truck and marked:

Then it was all taken back apart and the feets reassembled according to their marks, ready for to weld feet to bar:

Bar with feets welded on bolted onto new seat rails with grade 8 bolts, the bolts run through the rail, bar and feets:

And installed back in truck:
