Why not put it in the seat thread, if you know it goes there? That way we don't have misc seat threads when people are searching... Just saying....

Yea... Waiting had nothing to do with it. If you had time to post it here then you had time to post it in the seats area....

No harm done though. Nice find. I am on the hunt for some seats as well.

I was so dang tired of my clunky old wore out seat in my 95 YJ and after reading the awesome write ups about folks swapping out seats with other kinds I went to the Junk Yard and found me a nice set of seats out of a 2001 Grand Am and OMG after dealing with trying to get the old seats off the old risers and slider and that sucked... But after that the seat bolted right up and God they feel awesome and ride perfect.. I will post pics as I know everyone has seen them before.
See it did happen... Lol

You can still get new foam and leather for them too through Eckler's if you want to re-do them like new.
I was wondering about the Vette seats. I am thinking of some 5 point racing seats for my '85 and using the leftovers in the YJ. Mine aren't the sport seats shown but standard ones that don't have the big bolsters and would make it easier to climb in and out. You prolly couldn't get them for $30 at a U pull it tho. After owning this car for 5 years I can assure you Jeep parts are NOT expensive, lol.

My Dakota seats. From what I've read they came in the Dakota's with the power seat option '01 and up? http://www.customdakotas.com/forums/...her-seats.html
PO said he had to enlarge one hole and the rest was bolt in.
The D/S was power and he removed the control, that's where it started ripping, that combined with my jeep is kinda tall so the stress on the side of the seat is increased.

installed a set of 03 Chevy Cavalier seats into my 90 YJ, not an exact match took some redrilling and spacers. But got her done, feels and looks much better than the stock gray vinyl seats.
