Thanks Now I have to sell my Grey leather seats to recomp some of the cost and there isn't anything wrong with the seats not rip or tears. The passenger side seat bracket is broken. So I convinced the wife I needed new ones.

Seats will be here Wednesday!! and a nice looking weekend ahead!!!!!!!

So I got the passenger seat in with no problems. Then I started with the drivers side. I was easily able to take the three bolts out but the torx 50 bolt would budge. I hit it from above and below with penetrating oil multiple times. Please please any advice would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Able to use a handheld torch to heat up the bolt? Using air or hand tools?

Most hardware stores have cheap torches. Small propane tank with a torch nozzle on the top that should hear any stuck bolt up enough to break it loose. If the breaker bar won't fit than just use your regular socket ratchet and put a piece of PVC pipe or a jack handle on the end for more leverage. And if that doesn't work try to hit the ratchet with a hammer to shock it loose.

Well took Rubi to my buddies shop(jeep owner) and they had the torx bolt out in 5 minutes and didn't charge me. I did give the mechanic a 20 and said beer was on me.

Well finally got the seats installed. Had to go to my buddies shop to have the torx bolt removed. The install was ok till I hit the drivers side. Once the seat was bolted down it wouldn't slide back because it hit the seat belt collector. So I put in some large washers to raise it up. Then when I got the seat where I would like it it squeak against the roll bar bad so I cut that out and then ziptied the black outside together. Done

The seats have taken a little while to get used to. I like them and they are very comfy. Here are the cons..

1) I wish the seat backs were a little higher... oh well
2) The stock seatbelt clips that mount to the seat are a little too short and its a pain.
3) The drivers seat bracket is too tight against the seat belt spool and it now doesn't want to retract to well at all. I already put some spacers in and really don't want to put anymore. The passenger side doesn't have that problem at all. weird

You can get seat belt expander a that will fit for about 20 bucks on amazon. Might be a temporary solution.
