I have seats quite similar to these that I got from JC Whitney, buy one get one deal.

Decent seats, they've faded like crazy buy held up well over the last five years. They sit VERY high and I had to build new risers in order to get them to sit right. But all in all they are good seats for the price.

I got the Garage Pro ones..... in BLACK.

Don't think they're offering the buy one get one deal anymore, it was a LONG time ago.

Those Ebay seats and harness Carlos found are scary cheap! Heck belts cost more than the price they have 2 seats and belts for. I may drive to their plant and have a look, they sure look nice

I mean they can't be too bad or they'd be facing lawsuits already I'm sure. It's worth a look!

I bought the Bestop replacement seats that don't adjust. On sale, with rebate, etc. they were a little over $110 each then.

After two years they look new still. Fit was perfect. Color is dead on. The black denim hasn't faded or stained. Nice. I should have bought them years ago...

You don't really need the adjustable back. You can almost buy two fixed back TrailMax seats for the price of one adjustable one.

When you say adjustable back? You mean to lean forward or back?

i have a set of PRP daily driver seats with camo cordura covers. they are comfy but with stock seat brackets they do mount fairly high. they survived a bad wreck where the roll bar bent forward into the passenger seat and bent the frame but didn't hurt the fabric at all. they are now mounted to a full roll cage.

That wreck must have made a HUGE impact on you, you are rather cocooned in there now!

it was a bad wreck. got rearended on the interstate at 65 mph or so and ended up on the passenger side sliding backwards into the ditch. and of course the guy had no insurance. i got ythe cage secnd hand but it is very well built. heres a couple pics of the jeep after the wreck.
and this is how it sits now.

it would have been but since he had no insurance i just rebuilt it out of my own pocket as i only had liability ins on it. otherwise it would have been totalled just due to the amount that needed to be replaced. i'm hoping i'll eventually get some money out of the guy but so far he hasn't appeared to court and has a warrant out for him.

My Baja SS seats are okay. The covers have wear in them and it doesn't see a whole lot of driving either. Their brackets blow. They are not made well enough at all and because of them, one of the nuts in my floor is super tweaked from installing them. Would I buy the seats again, hell no. Would I use them if I had to and I got them for free, yeah. Not worth the money IMO.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.
