There are only 4 bolts that secure the sofa/bench seat into the van. Not sure I can bolt a captain's chair in without dropping the gas tank...
Sorry. I didn't realize you had a Dodge. The E-series seats won't make work any easier in your case unfortunately.
Dropping the tank isn't too hard if its almost empty, especially if you have access to a transmission jack. It actually might be a good excuse to replace the in-tank filter sock, if it hasn't been done yet. Also, at that age its a good idea to make sure the fuel tank strap isolators (the rubber pads) are still good, and the straps aren't rubbing the tank.
