Replace bench seat on 97 Tacoma

I have a 1997 regular cab 4x2 Tacoma. How difficult would it be to replace the standard bench seat with two bucket seats from an extended cab? Would the console mount right in or would it require drilling?

And finally...where can I get these parts? I can't find the console anywhere!

Yes - you can bolt bucket seats from a same-era Tacoma into your bench-furnished truck. The bench seat assembly doesn't use all 8 of the bolt holes used for the pair of buckets. The extra holes (depending on year) are either (a) pre-molded in the floor pan (just drill 'em out) or (b) pre-drilled and plugged (just remove the plugs).

If I recall correctly, the bench seat's seat belt anchor / receptacles don't transplant onto the buckets, so make a point to get the inboard bucket seat belt anchors along with the seats.

How about the center console? Where can I buy that and will it bolt in?

Here's one.

EDIT: Mine looks a little different, though.
I don't have that odd formation of indented areas in the front-ish pocket.
