I just pulled the stock seats, moved the jeep sliders to the grand am seats, and bolted them back into the jeep.
I don't remember the bolt measurements at the moment, but I can check tonight.
here are some pics,



Those are the exact same seats I got from the '98 Cavalier. You have the same center console too. It's kinda tight, but it works.

so i got my seats in they are comfortable my adaptors worked great just some flat steel 16x3 in size (not sure on thickness) with holes drilled to adapt the seats to the sliders

the dimensions of my drivers side slider is (from center hole to center hole)
14 3/8" wide
12 1/2" long

my pass side are
14 3/8" wide
12 1/2" long

the seat dimensions were (from center hole to center hole)
14" long on both sides
the distance between the front two holes were 13 1/2" (i could have measured wrong buti dont think so
on the rear of the seat it was 13 3/8" between the center of the two holes

i didnt get the measurements for the pass. seat but i assume they are hte same or really close to it

here are pics



crappy pic of the bracket


EDIT sorry for the size of the pics if someone wants to resize them just do so and post them in a new post or PM them to me and i will switch them

I just replaced my 90 YJ fixed seats w/ some YJ reclining the sliders dont match up. Anyone have some? PM Me.

I also was wondering how safe are these swaps?

It was just an idea b/c right now my YJ reclines are held on w/ 2 bolts.

Seats from a 1997 Sunfire RS.

If anyone is interested, I have a great set of original seats I would let go for $50. Shipping would probably be quite expensive though.

I have the bestop heated seats (really nice in the winter, even better to turn on without passenger knowing in the summer), I'm fairly tall (6'6") and the seats sat so high that i had a hard time getting in an out, and couldn't lift my leg high enough to hit the clutch with the doors on, so i took of the slider brackets and drilled a new set of holes about 1"-2" back, and it gave some much needed leg room, and it lowered the seat some

I put in some seats from a 95 eagle talon. I had to fab up brackets made from flat steel I used 3 inch wide plate and had to drill holes to line everything up. I also had to cut the front of my brackets to level out the seat. The seats I used were power seats so I had to make room for the motors they stuck down quite abit. So that also raised my seats 2 inches higher then stock. My stock steering wheel was too big so I bought a grant wheel that alows me to slide under it into the seat. I ran a wire into my radio slot on my fuse box and another wire under the dash for a ground and got the power hooked up. They were light grey so I went to Trio a local auto parts store and bought some charcoal spray on fabric dye. They feel so much better then my stock seats. I am happy with the Mod.

Just wanted to contribute. I had a Landrover Disco I sitting around so I decided to try a seat swap to my Yj. Well it is a poor fit, fabrication needed and the seats end up being to high/close to the steering wheel and no room for center console and hits against roll bar on the side. They were comfy though.

Bestop TrailMax Pro

I put these in my Jeep. Direct bolt up even was able to use the original factory sliders. The rear tumbler seat was still in good shape, so I used the bestop seat cover that matched the new seats. The seat cover was ~100 bux. Matched the fabric perfecetly.

They worked out to 325 Canadian each.

I am working on a theory that there are two different YJ risers out there.

hey rusty...
i did a recent seat bracket swap and saw what youre theorizing.. i have trailmax II's and the stationary seat risers in my 92 were NOT the same mounting dimensions as the new (to me) flip forward seat risers from the 87-90 era that i put in.. the flips bolt pattern and actual mounting area was about 1/4 - 3/8 thinner in width but the stationaries bolt pattern was spaced apart more length wise, so i had to drill 2 new rear holes in the flips for the sliders and pull them out a tad to mount the sliders..

notice the 2 guys with the grand-am seats? one fit and one didnt, the issue is,
drum roll pleeeeeeeeeeease...

one has flips and the other stationary bracketry.. hence your theory is becoming evident

anyone else experiance this?

have any input?

I went to the JY today and they had a tonnnnn of stuff. Quite possibly one of every type of possible swap that was listed. I noticed a set of 03 Neon seats and came here to check them out and sure enough theyre on the list but since I dont have access to a welder I decided they would be a no-go.

Anyways I saw Camaro seats are one of the ones on there. It says 82+ but is there a year where that stops and they might no longer fit? Just figured I'd ask before I need to pull and measure myself.
