Seat swap list?

Can someone post the link to the list of seats that will be a direct swap for my 90 YJ seats? I've followed 3 different links and they all took me to the front page of the forum.

Not sure what information is in there since I did my seat swap, but be aware that 87-90 seat brackets are different. I got some Cavalier seats and the didnt bolt in without some flat stock and drilling new holes. If I had known I would have bought some 91-95 brackets ahead of time

Hmm. Ok. So you would've bought brackets from a 91-95 Wrangler?
I found some '03 Cavalier seats on Craigslist I'm thinking about getting.

The brackets on the older version, at least some of them, are a little shorter. The Cav seats can be made to fit pretty easy with a piece of 3x3x1/4 steel, a little minor drilling and a few short bolts. Two beer job

but remember that if you swap to the newer seat brackets, you lose the ability to tilt both seats forward.

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

Newer brackets only have that feature on the driver's side correct?

Another quick question- what is a good price for these seats? I'm hoping to get them both for less than $100.

I bought a pair of 2001 Pontiac Sunfire seats (same as Chevy Cav seats) for $100 and they bolted right into my '90 YJ, no mods needed. I sold my Jeep seats for $100, with rips in them. Free seat swap.

My wife's 93 YJ has the tilt brackets on both sides. Same as others stated with a small piece of steel to match up the holes. We used Camaro seats. I'm actually thinking about cutting and lowering the front of the risers to tilt the seat forward. The stock mounting on the car seats is flat so when you put them on the angled risers you end up raising the front of the seat a good bit. It's fine for me, but not great for my wife.

I agree. Its not bad now that I have an automatic but my girlfriend used to push the clutch in with her toes after my seat swap. I like how it is cocked back a bit, but it doesn't leave a lot of room under the steering wheel.
