A number of upgrades that we do to our classic trucks are undoubtedly safety related. Sure, upgrading to big brakes can be seen as a performance upgrade, but it’s equally as important as a safety upgrade. Being able to safely stop in a short amount of space and time can be the difference between saving your truck and its precious cargo or the unmentionable. But there are a few modifications that can be made inside the cab that are just as imperative when it comes to safety.

One such improvement is that of three-point shoulder harness seatbelts. On some trucks, installing such a system can be a bit tedious unless you’re using a late-model seat that came equipped with these from the factory. But when it comes to ’67-72 C10s, it couldn’t be easier. That’s thanks to the fact that GM-equipped trucks of that era come with a reinforced attachment point on both B-pillars to add the upper, option-only shoulder harness. It’s just a matter of removing a few bolts and attaching the shoulder belt setup and you’re off to the races.

In addition to being an important safety upgrade, I’ve actually found that the finished installation is cleaner than having a pair of lap belts flinging around inside the cab. With the retractors pulling the belt in nice and tight, I’m not slamming the seatbelts in the doorjamb any longer and I don’t have to lean in and tuck the center belts in when I want to clean up the seat area.
