Talking High back bench seat

Howdy, does anyone hare know of any types of vehicles that had a high back bench the same width as the J trucks? I would like to put in a little newer seat with head rests for neck protection.

Any info on what to look fer at the boneyard would help. Thanks

I spent some time looking through a bone-yard with a tape measure. It's been a while, but what I found was that most newer full size trucks (F-150, Silverado) were too wide and compact trucks were too narrow (Ranger, S-10). Some of the older full size trucks were pretty close, but I didn't find any with seats that weren't trashed.
I think Dodge Dakotas were pretty close too.

My advice is just to measure your truck and head out to the yard and start measuring.
