I bought new bestop trailmax seats.

I bought new bestop trailmax seats in black denim. They look freakin awesome. I haven't installed them yet, but I sat in it and I love it. They were only $125 each. I know alot of people go to the junk yard to get seats, but when brand new ones are that cheap, I don't know how you could pass them up.

P.S. On a side note, I've gone to junkyards looking for seats and other jeep parts and I've noticed a few things;
1. They never have any jeep parts
2. The people that work at the junk yards are always such *******s(at least all the ones I've been to). I don't understand why that is.

Good deal! I put in new Trailmax Sport seats about 4 months ago and feel the same way about them. One thing though... with the new seats, especially if your old ones were as thrashed and broken down as mine were, plan on sitting higher and closer to the wheel than before - about an inch to an inch and a half each way! Not a bad thing unless you're a big guy and the fit was close already. Just FYI...

I am a pretty big guy actually, but the main reason I got the new seats is that the old one was totally destroyed(broken frame, broken mounts) and the wife couldn't reach the pedals. So, she'll probably like the fact that it is 2 inches higher and I'll be able to deal. I'm just happy becuase my back has been killing me and I sure its becuase of the broken seat. Unfortunately, I can't install them until I get the sliders in and the place I ordered them from is out of stock. Oh, well.

Yeah, I just put in the Trailmax pro's and wow, I've never been happier. They have great back support and are extremely durable as well as nice to look at. You can never go wrong with Bestop products.

Battlestar, try this place.

They're local to Sacramento, but I believe they ship and they have damn near anything you'd need. The guys are very knowledgable (they're actual Jeepers), and I've never had a problem with attitude.
