Just got new seats! Whats everyone else using?

Went to the salvage yard down the road today and scored two nice bucket seats from a 1997 Saturn. Only paid $20 for each of them and they are adjustable and have lumbar support. Now I all have to do is rig up some mounting brackets.
What kind of seats are the rest of you using?

I have a 79 CJ that came with low back buckets . I scored a pair of 86 CJ7 Laredo seats in really nice condition with the mounting brackets . Are your seats vinyl or cloth ?

I'm runnning RCI ball busters, but they are cheap and I don't have to worry about it raining when the top isn't on. plus designed for a 5 point-harness.

Mine are out of like a early '90s sunbird I believe. I traded some RCI type buckets for them. A buddy of mine had them in his Zuk but the were to wide. They are mighty comfy.

rci buckets. The jeep isn't driveable yet so i can ask this question: do i need to buy the padded covers or can i get by with just the plastic?

Tim, you're really gonna want the padded covers and some extra 1-2" foam rubber to stick in there. I have slept in my jeep several times with the extra padding but that's another story.[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
