Well no not really, I picked up T3 seats today. The passager seat went straight in but drivers seat is about 2 inches out, on the runners. but you can move the runner on the cab floor and adjust, I hope.

Yeah, I was just gonna post that; the drivers' side seat on the LT is a little bit narrower than a T3 because of the engine.
 
To be honest - I ran mine for 6 months with just the door-side runner in and the other side resting on the engine; and then finally modded the seat base by moving the runner.

Thumbs UpLOL that is exactly what I'm doing! It just looks like the runner has to be on the other side of the seat base. I'm going to cut off and put on other side asap. Thanks

I fitted captains seats (with armrests) to mine - so I left the outer (door side) runner in the same place and modded the inside (engine side) one to suit; I could have moved the outer one, but that would have lead to clearance issues between the armrest and the door!
