got these RRC seats on ebay for ~$300 shipped new.
quality and comfort are pretty decent, been through an 18hr trail run and they held up just fine. inflatable lumbar support helps a lot

Did they just bolt up to the stock seat risers?

Yes Sir

EDIT

Let me add , these are not what you would call "big boy seats" im only 5'5" and about 125lb's and i fit Snug in them so keep that in mind if your not the size of a teen but in your late 30's

But i do love the fact that i don't move around in them whilst bouncing around

Yes. They still slide on the slider, just that the seat back is in a single fixed position.

Like someone said before, they do sit a little higher than your worn down stock ones. But after a little , they are fine.

I'm 6'2", 250. So any change in seat height would be a problem... But the change from the OEM to the Bestop was not an issue for me.

They were stiff/hard for the first few rides. They are nice now.

Yea that's what worrys me the most is the height since I'm 6'1 and about 230. Since I don't have til steering sometimes it's difficult to get in under the steering wheels if I don't slide in just right.

My quick eBay search showed me that they're going from anywhere between $200 and a 300 per seat.

His ebay name is: cseoffroad

Just checked my purchase history. I bought the seats on sale for $400. Received only one seat, called and complained, got $60 refunded back to keep me happy while the second seat showed up. $340 out the door not bad

Are you asking me? Mine are the baja rs (they recline) they bolt straight to yjs & cj7 with no extra brackets or sliders needed. They cost 299 a seat!
