Default New Seatbelt Source for 96 Hardbody?

The drivers side seatbelt retracted and stayed that way on my 96 D21 4x4 this winter. Fiddled with it for a while, then temporarily swapped the passenger side belt over.... 6 months later... Anyone know where to find new aftermarket seatbelts for these? I talked to the dealer and it seems that Nissan doesn't make them anymore. Found some old threads about free replacements through the company, but these mostly seem like old news and dead ends as far as I can tell. Plenty of aftermarket seatbelts on eBay, but I haven't found any that look like they would fit without significant modification/body chopping. Has anyone found a type that will work? I know you'll say junkyards, but my options there are limited in rural Alaska, unfortunately. Thanks in advance!

I don't know where to get a new replacement seat belt for your truck.

When the drivers-side belt on mine locked up, I found a passenger-side seat belt from a 1994 Pathfinder in the salvage yard that worked really well. It was a direct bolt-in.

David29, a member here, might have a used set that might work for you.

A part out is your best bet. Not like the seatbelts are a hot ticket item.

I could keep out an eye for one in the next couple of months? You’d have to pay shipping from Vancouver. Distance is shorter, but could be cheaper from somewhere in the states? I’m assuming there isn’t that many left in Alaska? Especially if you’re from one of the non-dense areas.
