Default My YJ's new cheap seats...

Driver's seat disintegrated, rummaged around in the garage a bit and found a couple old Chevy van seats, width was spot on and just had to drill new holes about an inch in front of the old forward most holes...rear hole were perfect...



I like the low back look better, they sit lower so I'm looking thru the center of the windshield, and I can reach everything better. Best part is I don't end up in the back seat when I take off from a light now!

nice.....however if you want full backs...go to a junk yard and get the seats out of a tracker or something along those likes, seats will probably be the same as u have not with those seats and are prolly a bit more confortable........

good job though

Eventually I plan to get some APC nylon racing seats so I can use a 5 point harness, but for now these were handy and worked out better than I thought they would....should look cool with the top down, don't care for the hiback seats stickin up with the top down.

I like the lowback look but it worries me for whiplash. I know, I'm a sissy.

Don't waste your money.. They're junk cause more harm than they save... save your money up a lil more and get some good Corbreau's or Sparco's ..
