haha, I own a corvette and I know that they aren't any more comfortable than a jeep seat... But sure convince yourself but you aren't convincing me.... The only reason why it felt comfortable in a vette is the way you sit in it. you put that bucket seat in a jeep and you'll realize.... Have you driven a vette for 4 hours at a time?? haha. I'm 24 and I felt like rigor mortis was setting in....

i wasnt planning on convincing you

i just think it would be unique

they're only temporary


anyway the seats i have suck because they're knock off "off road seats"

and theres a pole on each side that makes it impossible to get in and out of without hurting yourself


so anyhting will do for now till i get something real
besides they're free...im not gonna complain

Very good write ups on seat conversions. One thing I don't see mentioned in the 14 pages is the clearance between the seat and the steering wheel. I had just bought a 79 CJ7 and the previous owner did a good job installing a set of TJ seats in it. The problem is that the steering wheel now sits in your lap. I don't have a tilt steering column, so this is a bit of a problem, plus it increases the distance from the floor petals.

My question is do the direct bolt in seats or the slightly modified seats give you enough clearance between the seats and steering wheel for those of us that don't have tilt steering?

Thanks

to answer your question mudviper...from my experience

my "new" seats were off road suspension seats and they sit higher than the originals and i am experiencing that problem

best advice is to find somethign close enough to the same size of the original i wouldnt get one that has a cusion more than 2 1/2" higher than the original becuase i made the mistake of getting a thick seat....very comfy once your sitting a PITA to get in and out of though, and your knees are kissing the steering wheel

thats just my POV...hence why i am opting to try corvette seats for a change

CJ's are naturally tighter fitting than a YJ dominic... Mudviper I would redrill the seat mounts and move it back.

I am not sure if moving the seat back would help. That would be moving the seat further away from the pedals, which could be a problem since I am not all that tall..lol.

Does anyone know if YJ seat risers will fit in a CJ and if they are shorter are same height as the CJ's?

Thanks

The CJ-7 and YJ share the same seat brackets. That being said, the one writeup I have seen about TJ seats going into a YJ showed the YJ bracket being modified to lower it down alot.

Thanks Rusty. The YJ brackets look a little easier to modify to me then the CJ brackets. Might pick up a set of those and modify those
