If you guys have patience and and want what I think is the best seat to put in your Dakotas then the Gen 3 Viper seats are the answer. I have placed them in my truck, they do bolt in directly but they do not adjust on the slides very well. With very little fabrication they bolt in and slide properly. I hunted the internet and found a perfect set for $400.00 and $100.00 in shipping, you cannot even purchase a good pair of imitation seats and have them delivered for that price. Alot of the viper parts houses have plenty of them, however they want alot of money as well. As I said at first you have to be patient, you do not have to purchase both at the same time. Sometimes they are available one at a time. If you want to install the OEM console since you had the flipup seat you can find those on the internet as well. I found one in great shape for $75.00. The great thing about using the OEM is all of the mounting holes are already waiting in your truck to use. If you want I will try and post some picts in the next few days of my current interior mods. As of today I have the rear door panels removed for modification, the fronts will be done in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully this will be of some help to you, if you have any other questions, just let me know.

I have added pictures of my Gen 3 Viper seat installation with a modified OEM center console so that you can see what it looks like. It was origionally the bench seat arrangement with the fold up 3rd seat.

No actually needs 9 guages or the majority of the stuff that we do to our vehicles and post here, however it is nice to fully monitor all of the areas if you desire.

1. Oil Pressure
2. Water Temp
3. Voltage
4. Oil Temp
5. Transmission Temp
6. Rear Differential Temp
7. Front Differential Temp
8. Right Cylinder Head Temp
9. Left Cylinder Head Temp

You went all out! Kudos. Why not an egt gauge? Any pictures from the driver seat?

Oh, good job not getting a useless a/f gauge without a wideband! Glad there are some people who use the stuff they do to their truck and dont get it "for the looks" like 12k HIDs when they put off less lumens but are a "cool color"
