mount them separate. that way you can get them nice and low.
build separate frames for each. dont skimp on the mounts beacuse that is the only thing holding the seats to the floor incase of an accident.

dont attach them to emt its not tubing and it sure as hell not strong enough to hold them seats in in case of an accident, not only that but they sit stupidly high like that, getting in and out of the truck will be a pain just mount them to the floor like jesus intended

The emt was just to show i wasnt going to use is im confused on how to mount them direct to the floor ...cuz its not flat theres every curve u can think of .... any suggestions

I would use the factory seat mounting brackets in the factory location, and fab up some kind of adapter plate/bracket that allows you to put your new seats on the factory mounts.
