mastercraft nomad seats

mastercraft has come out with a import version ( china) of their rubicon seat called the nomad. at 199.00 a seat the price is great but how is the quality?
anyone try them yet? if they live up to the mastercraft name they would be a great deal.

Yea its basically a Chinese seat made to Mastercraft specs.

That being said I have a pair sitting on my living room floor. Finishing up my cage build soon and these will be getting installed.

I figured I'd be one of the first to try them out. They've been out for a little while but I haven't been able to find any reviews.

I also dont see Mastercraft putting their name on a seat that doesn't hold up. I could be wrong though. Only time will tell.

I like them so far. I dont DD my jeep so I dont use them that often. pretty comfy and hold you in well on the trail. Still need a few more runs on them for them to break in more.

"Made in China"?

Hell with that. I've been saving for a pair of Mastercraft seats. This is OUR country, I'll be dammed if I'll compromise my principles to save a few (in the long run) hard-earned dollars.

Buy American, or save for a while longer if the price is higher. For EVERYTHING you buy. Some things are worth it, and some things are not the EASY choice.

My opinion, and worth every cent you paid for it.

Those look good, I bet they hold up. I bought a seat the other day from a salvage yard for 35$. to mount in the back. Ill have just one seat in the back and a storage box.
Thats a sweet roll cage too.

Wanna guess what OEM parts on your Jeep came from China? 1 hint, it's not none.

I went with caribou. believe they are made in Utah. but the mounting brackets about cost that much..... but they are suspension and reclining, bolstered well and have lumbar. been running around on them for a few months much more comfy and holds you in much better. though if you have stock seat belts and airbag systems none of these options work as well with those systems and any changes you do to a SRS system is on you. If you have to mod a air bag system to fit. Its better to not have them at all. you set that up wrong and it goes off at full power when you only needed half it will be a bad day........if latter in a crash if anything is suspect it will be any changes you made.

Wanna enlighten me on the said content of Chinese parts on my 1995 YJ?
Oh, that's right, they made the blinker fluid. Seriously, I'd like to know. I'll hazard a guess and say it's a LOT less than the content of vehicles produced by "Detroit" today.

And seriously, the only way we are going to save our nation is to STOP buying stuff made in China. 2014 could be an ugly year for the US if we do not change our ways, in many ways. Congress, are you listening? The clock is ticking...

vegas I PM'ed you about these a few weeks ago. Can you answer my questions on here so others can get some more info too?

Here are my questions as a reminder:
How are they and would they fit a big guy ok? I am 6'4", 235 lbs and wear a size 36 pant.

Also, would the design warrant itself to running harnesses for offroad but leaving the factory belts in for street use?

Thanks in advance for your reply

sorry it took so long for me to respond. Ive been out of town for work.

The seats are NOT good for big people. I am 5'11" and 160lbs. I have around a 32" waist. You could fit a little bit bigger waist in it but the height is the main concern. I have to run my harnesses over the top of the shoulders on the seat to maintain proper geometry. If i ran them through the holes in the seat it would be pulling down and compressing my spine.

Im not sure how normal seatbelts would work with it. Because of the side bolsters i believe it wouldnt keep you tight in your seat.
