Seat Ripoffs....

I'm wanting to replace my seats in my CJ, but I'm not crazy about some of the aftermarket seats I've found (Quality or price).

I was wondering what type "Doner Vehicles" You guys were swiping seats out of? I don't mind doing a little mod work to make them bolt in.

I looking for people that have already done this, and what type of seats/vehicles they chose. I'm probably going to swipe some tan seats from somewhere.

Fiero seats... easy to install, cheap, and has speakers in the headrests... I love 'em. They're very comfortable.

Re: Seat Ripoffs....

Any pics of those in your ride? Would like to see some.

Are they Vinyl, or cloth?

Re: Seat Ripoffs....

This question has been asked about a hundred times here. If the search function is working, look it up. BTW, I've had 1985 Mazda RX-7 seats in my CJ-7 for about 8 years.

I just did this, 1997 Saturn seats. Made one bracket for the front mounts and they bolted right in. Very comfortable, but they are cloth.

I do have two CJ highback seats for sale. $75 takes both of them.

Ford Bronco seats from the early 90's are extremely comfortable, not sure if they would be too wide though. If I see any at the yard I will measure and let you know.

Re: Seat Ripoffs....

I tried to get feiro seats a long time ago, and gave up. The good ones are taken quick, and the idoits here in california will rather rip apart a new seat to get the speakers out - go figure.

Re: Seat Ripoffs....

FYI, all the Mitsubishi cars (maybe trucks also?) come with flat mounting seats. This means NO BRACKETS other than spacers for the correct height. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
I saw a buds commando this past weekend with Eclipse seats (adj. lumbar) that looked pretty nice. The cheesy nylon seat covers from WallyWorld would make the cloth fairly durable and water resistant.
