I know this belongs in the Seat thread but I could not wait to share...
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.
Seats from a 1991 Chevy Corvette. All you have to do to make these fit is remove the bottom cushion and notch the holes to fit the factory Jeep seat track, use some bigger washers and bolt it down. Pretty simple, took me maybe a half hour with an air pencil to notch it and align the seats. They fit great and look great. 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.
