Default Best place to get harness?

Since Tonya was riding with Flamerfear me when he did a head stand with his jeep, Tonya has demanded that I get a 4 or 5 point restraint belts. I got a line on a set of seats, but I need the belts. I have found several costing around 74 a piece. Any body know where they offer a better price?

I am fond of mine... but I need a set for the passenger yet.

I have been told my new seat needs a little work, but I find it ideal for webwheeling in the garage.

$74 to save your life sounds like a pretty good deal to me- how much cheaper do you want them?

Post a wanted add on the local dragracing website. The belts are dated and expire. They are plenty good for Jeeping but not legal for racing. I've pulled belts out of my dragcar with 1 days racing on them and replaced them with new ones because of the date.

Yes NHRA requires that belts be replaced every 2 years they have tags right in the belt and when bought they are marked... they sell out dated ones all the time! swap meets average 20 bucks...

Now if you don't have a cage they will kill you as you will not be able to move to the side when the roof colapes... we have it a rule that you can't use the uppers if you don't have a cage!

or floor mount and you just make a mount at the floor board and clip or bolt it in at the floor! my self I use bolt on bar mount cam locks 3" belts thought 3" laps and 2" chest are more comfortable but 3" chest feels better when ya crash:miff:
