Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

Has anyone here put the Pep-Boys replacement buckets into their jeep?? Here in San Antonio, they have the vinyl covered ones for about 150.00 each. They recline, and have fairly good lumbar support. One of the things I like best is that they are not so narrow through the bolster as many
of the aftermarket saets do. And having the sliders attached as well as being set up for a racing harness is a
big plus in my book.
Also what are some good options for replacing the fixed rear seat in the CJ-7. I am wondering if there are any strip-yard options which can flip and fold or just fold.
I was especially wondering about the rears out of a Bronco
II or one of the Isuzu or Mitsus.
Thanks

Re: Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

There were some postings a while back about using a rear seat from an import. I can't remember who posted it or when.

I'm glad you brought this up, I was also looking at those seats. They are on my "to buy" list.

Re: Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

The only real downside to them is the fact that they are covered in vinyl. Could lead to a major case of "swamp-ass" in the summer. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

I swapped in a YJ fold and tumble rear seat. I bought the rear brackets that bolt to the fenderwells and made the front brackets from steel angle and 3/8" sholdered bolts.

Re: Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

Anyone know whether a TJ rear seat will fit into a CJ-7? I have one is storage and was thinking of using it in my '77 CJ. If it works I may have a spice/nutmeg fold and tumble CJ rear seat for sale. Thanks,

Re: Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

i believe that the tj rear seat is too wide for the cj's and yj's.

Re: Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

Well, I just checked these out in person, and I don't think they'll work if you're planning to bolt them into stock YJ brackets. The problem is that the bottom of the seat is too damn high, much like the Bestop seats I just bought and have to return.

Why is it so damn hard to find seats for a YJ?

Re: Pep-Boys replacement bucket seats

Bucket seats out of 86-94 Ford Mustangs pretty much bolt up into 76-95 CJs/YJs. You just gotta drill some new holes in the risers/sliders. Check out the link, it'll tell you what to do:
