On a slightly different topic the Toyota Sienna seat conversion---I'm curious if that's something my cargo only work van would benefit from doing?
haha! da Vinci is a bit of a stretch but I'll take it!!! Thanks for the kind words!
The Sienna seats up front are, in my opinion, a pretty big improvement from the stock seats. Not a cheap mod to make by any means but since we do a lot of long drives in our van, it was worth it to us. However, you do have to take into consideration that these seats aren't really designed to be front seats so the recliners are pretty much useless unless you have a swivel. I'm not trying to talk you out of using a Sienna seat in the front but for a cargo/work van, there may be cheaper alternatives that will yield the same result. Having the stock seats recovered and the foam reshaped a little might be one way to do it.
In our case, we had 4 of the seats in the back of the van so it made sense to put matching seats up front.
