It depends on the style seats that you want.
Obviously stock bucket seats will bolt on to the bases.
Only other seat that I have heard that will bolt up directly is PT Cruiser seats 2000-2005 that I know of. I have 2004 seats in mine.
Other aftermarket seats like Smittybuilt, Trailgear, Besttop, etc... will all require modification of the base if not removal and custom base made.
