4 point harness

I am interested in putting 4 point harnesses in my 91 YJ. I have the stock seats and do not want to mount the belts to the roll bar. I want them to be mounted on the floor. I don't know if this is possible with the stock YJ seats. Has anyone done this to a YJ, or seen it done, how did it work, and where did they get the harness from. Thanks for any help.

Re: 4 point harness

I've heard that shoulder harnesses should not be mounted below your shoulders.

Re: 4 point harness

How about 5 pt?
Legal?



Do you think insurance will cover the carb if it some how "teleports" behind the tires of a 350 with dualies?

Yes they are street legal. You can get them at any speed shop, or search online to find the right one for your jeep. Here is a rig with 4 point harnesses pictured, hope it helps a little. http://www.truckworld.com/4x4-OffRoa...-cj7jeep2.html

Re: 4 point harness

Hmm yes, but stock seats don't have an adjustable headrest.

It's solid, I think we would have to cut some holes?
Maybe you could either stich the holes really nice like, or put plastic thing-I-ma-jigs in them.

Re: 4 point harness

I didn't even think about the stock seats, you are right. If the holes were cut through the seat without disrupting any support members, it may work. But I am not sure exaxtly what frame system the seat itself uses. I would worry about maintaining the integrity of that head rest after cutting holes through it. But then again, it may work without ever interfering with any of the seat framing members. I might be inclined to just buy new seats if I were going to put a harness in. But It's not my money so its easy to say that.

Re: 4 point harness

It's easy enough to find out about stock seat frames.

Just find the local low-rider, and make him have an "accidental" engine fire. no doubt he has no means of putting it out, when it's all done, the seats won't have any fabric on them,

Re: 4 point harness

Will is right, the shoulder straps should have a maximum angle downward angle of 25 degrees from your shoulders to their mounting points. They must mount to a roll cage.
