G'day guys,
I use to use ExplorOz about 10 years ago, and its great to be back. So thanks for having me, and certainly am here to learn and enjoy.

I recently bought an 86 troopy (HJ75) w/o rear side seats and wanted to install some factory seats from a 79 series troopy. Will these fit?

That's the million dollar question :)

Thanks fellas,
Oldog

Yep course they will, but get the ones from a 78 series cause the ones from a 79 series could be a problem.

79 is a Cab Chassis.

78 is a Troopy.

Toyota changed the floorpan with the 78 series forward of the seats but not sure if the changes included the seat area so it might be best to try before you buy so to speak as the later seats may not bolt in to the same positions.
If you are talking about the rear side seats then if your vehicle wasn't an 11 seater originally then there will be no captive nuts or plated reinforcements in the body for either the seats or the seat belts. Yes you could fit them but as to whether an engineer would approve the change you might be best to discuss with them first.
