aftermarket seats for comfort.

Anyone out there know the best seats for a worn-out TJ. The are dozens on EBAY but they are too generic for my style. Hunsacker look like the best quality but what do you guys think?

i dont know about aftermarket...but i've seen a lot of salvage yard seats fit into jeeps.

i've seen fiero seats, mustang seats, and cavalier seats all made to work.

i'm sure they were cheaper.....and cushier than some of the aftermarket ones i've seen

the fiero seats were neat cuz they had speakers built into the head rest.....you might be able to hear the stereo that way!

just an idea

I am kind of in the same boat. I have a YJ, that still has the stock 15 year old seats in it. I would love to put a set of aftermarket seats in mine, but I can't find a pair that I like. What I really like about my YJ seats is that they are vinal, and when it rains I can just brush the water off. That is nice because my jeep never sees a top. I wish I could find a nice pair of aftermarket seats that are all vinal. Some are Vinal, but they have cloath in them ?

I like the stock, low-back seats with no side bolsters on the seat of backrest. Off road it's an advantage to be able to move around - different needs than a racing seat.

I ordered the Jeep with vinyl seats, but the covering of the back was wrapped under the back bar in the back of the seat. Water got trapped there and in a few years the frame rusted out. Then I got a pair of replacement seats that were made the same way. I took them to an upholstery shop and had them hog-ring the front and back of backrest covering together at the bottom. Now there's an inch gap between the backrest and cushion, and water runs right off.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

I have the Best Top supper seats....comfortable...(much better for me than the stock low backs), but....they don't seem to last. I have worn out the cushion on both seats on the left side.

An SOA lift means that you are climbing 'up' into the jeep....and being the lazy dude I am...I just slide my butt across the edge of the seat....after about 2 years the padding is gone and the spring is tearing a hole in the seat.

Those racing seats look good.....and have my interest.....

I ran a couple of sets like these, but they where Steel horse brand. Don't expect them to last much over 7 years if you leave them exposed to weather a lot.

I'm pretty sure i'm going to go with corbeau bajas in vinyl for my bronco. Here they are for $159 each shipped Off Road Seats from Corbeau

I think i'm going to pick up a pair and then try and add some heated seat parts. We have lots of mud and water around here and I have a tendency to get wet, climbing back into a warm seat would be awsome.
