Question Will 05 RME seats fit in a 97?

Hello everyone,
I just found a guy who is parting out his 2005 RME. The seats in my 97 are pretty bad off so I was thinking of buying the seats. He gave me a price and from what I can find on here, the price is really good. My question is, can I mount these seats in my 97 without a lot of hassle or will I have to mod some brackets and whatnot? From what I've read, the Rocky Mountain Edition seats sit a little lower, but that really is not a problem for me.
Thanks

well from 97 to 06 they used the exact same body and exact same mounts so i would say they would fit and be a bolt on no mod type of thing but im not 100% sure so i would wait on someone else to chime in.

That was what I was thinking too but I looked at quadratecs site just to see what you needed to mount a bestop seat and there are two different brackets, one for 1997-2002 and 2003-2006. Hopefully someone else will chime in before they get gone.
