How much were they? Very curious to see how comfortable those end up being. I really want some suspension seats or something to take the place of my old, nasty, worn-out stockers.

I picked up the pair for 50. 1 needs a new cover which is about 65. I brought one home and sat in it for like an hour. They are circle track seats so the side supports are kind of uncomfortable and the seat is a tight fit. Not sure if I'm going to run them or hold onto them for another project.

I sat in a customers Jeep today that had a nice set of Beard seats.... Which are amazing, but pricey.

I may end up with a pair of bestop well see

What are your thoughts on a mini spool?


I love the locked feel and for the price of disks and an Aussie I can get a 8.8 and a mini spool

Id worry about the carrier eventually cracking if you're hard on it. a mini spool puts a lot of stress on it.

Wouldn't an Aussie do the same though?

It will, but a mini spool is always "on" so it has a little more impact

True,

I love that on feel, I don't like the 8.25 because with out welding it you can't get that feel. And my dad hates the welded axle so I had to pull it.

Spool and welded is going to act the same

And welded is stronger than a mini spool...
