I have Corbeau Baja SS seats, have had them almost two years. They are not reclining and are a pita to get into, but once in they are very comfortable. If you use the bracket they make you sit higher and a tilt wheel is almost a must to get in ( I'm 6' too). I have no complaints, they show no wear after almost two years. I'd buy them again.
Well, they're pricey, but I put a set of refurb'd Recaro's in mine - they came out of an early '80's BMW 320i. Ever'body above the age of five years old KNOWS about these seats now though, so they're pretty hard to get a "deal" on; keep your eyes peeled on Craigslist and you MIGHT get lucky, as *I* did after six months of diligence...
That's not a bad price. I'd be interested to hear how well you fit in them once you get them. I'm 6' 225 and have been looking at some new seats as well. I've been running cheap JC Whitney seats for about 5 yrs and they've ran their course, overall a decent seat but a little more narrow than I'd like.

Supposedly there comparable to mastercraft rubicons but they are made in chi com land . They were 20 bucks cheaper then a set of race trims
Too bad I didn't know about them when I got my Racetrims. Yeah they are their import version. The girl I talked to at Mastercraft said they use a cheaper non-milspec fabric, but it has to be a hell of a lot better than the burlap EMPI uses.
^^^^ Ive driven 2.5hrs then wheeled allday and slept in my corbeau baja ultras. Then wheeled another full day to drive 2.5hrs home. To me the fixed sispension seats are more comfortable than the cheapo oem seats in my dd accord.
I drove about 4 blocks after I installed mine last weekend. Gonna have to go for a drive on my lunch break.
Rubicons? .. I looked at it this way , mastercraft has a hell of a reputation I don't think they would kill it with the nomad seats if they weren't Any good IMO .. I will make a write up in this thread when I get them stay tuned lol
