AHHAHAHAHA I've done that!!

last year I went for a quick jont in a buddy's backyard with a different ~400lb buddy riding shotgun. about 200 ft into the 1/3rd mile loop he goes into full recline-mode.
me: "TOO SLOW?" (while fishtailing around a bend)
him: "NAH MAN! I THINK I JUST BROKE YOUR SEAT!"
me: "BUH?" (finishes trail)

for future reference: Moab Corbeau recliners aren't built for 400lb people & fast wheeling...

He stripped all the teeth off the recliner mechanism. it was an easy fix, but took about a week for the new ($40) mechanism to show up - I used the ratchet strap for that week so I could still go driving around with the missus

I've read that several times about their reclining seats in the reviews I've seen

I ended up just welding my reclining mechanism so it's a fixed back, then put 2 half inch bolts though it and welded those too. It's a temp fix till I figure out how to mount my wrx seats.

cool, are wrx seats vinyl?

I'm otherwise happy with my corbeaus - that was the only issue I had with them (so far) and it was an easy fix. personally I love them - they're comfortable, but not too cushy, waterproof-ish and, black; There was always something weird about having a jeep with a black interior and grey seats plus they were ripped to shreds and the corbeaus were on sale - been in for a couple years now, holding up pretty good (*knocks on wood*)

... maybe someday I'll find a black back seat to match lol

Noooo they are not. I scotch guarded them pretty good though. The black and blue isn't something I'm feeling color wise though.

I got them for free, just had to re stitch the one seem from when the air bag blew. I had grand Cherokee leathers before.... It burned me a lot in the summer with no top.

YKYDAYJW you pull up to the parts store with your rusted windshield frame, primered tube fenders, and various other primed and gouged holes, and the kid asks,
"Is that your Jeep"?
"Yeah, but want to get some body work done on it this year".
"It's just..... bad a$$".
