Apparently this was to save weight, thus producing better gas mileage......I just made that up.

they made them more comfortable for hte people who don;t 4x4. if you get old yj seats and put them next to a newer yj seat, the new seats are very wide. that is why the newer consoles are almost 2" thinner then the console that came stock in my 87. i noticed it when i tried to put the console from my wife's 93 into my 87 because the cup holder position was better. i had a ton of room between the console and hte seat. measuring everything up, the console was 6" wide and my 87 was 8" wide. so then i noticed the seats were alot wider and flatter on the newer yjs.

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

The PO on mine replace the driver's seat with something from a catalog, but he doesn't remember what or when, but it does recline and is a high-back seat. The passenger is still original and still has the Jeep written all over in the fabric. I hope I can find an original driver's seat.

So basically I should amend what I said to be specific to people who have stock seats in a 1995? The stock seats you guys are describing and showing me are just like my cheaop replacement!

I am a fan of the factory seats as well. The seats in my YJ and WJ feel like a glove. However, they aren't wore out either. Which brings to point it is rather unfair to say "These seats are so much better than my wore to hell, broke, bent frame factory seats". Brilliant deduction Watson!

IIRC, they are the Bestop TrailMax Pro's.

I got them as a birthday gift several years ago & I really like 'em.

I had to wait ~4 weeks for them to arrive in the US. They came from China on the slooooooowwwwwww boat.

I am trying to replace my seats but i am having problems with the torx bolts that hold them to the sliders. i have tried several different sizes from t-30 to t-40 but they just keep wont come out. should i drill them out and replace them with hex head bolts.

Do yourself a favor. Get some on blaster and soak the bolts holding the sliders to the jeep. There are two nuts underneath and two bolts up top. 9/16 socket I think. The first nut will be right next to your body mount and the next is diagonal from it. Then up top there are two bolts going downward. Once you get these out the whole seat will come out on the sliders. Then you can crank the torx out. Or in my case get three out to discover the fourth rusted into the seat. Replace all of these. Check for rust and cracks in the floor while you have the seat out.

VirginJeeper - Just recently bought a YJ. Was searching on places to install an amp and came across a picture of your amp under the seat.

How did you do it? Mind sharing? Heck, I'd be willing to buy you some beers just to meet somewhere to see it!

I'd like to get into the Corbeau seats, but were talking the better part of a grand with sliders and all the goodies, maybe more with five way belts. There are only a couple brands of five way restraints that are DOT legal at that, and a jerk LEO could ticket you for anything without the 'DOT' tag, and in some places it's illegal to change much of anything. Glad I live in NC. where it's still a free for all.
