My Review of the Corbeau Baja XRS seats.
I have read a lot of negative reviews about how poorly the Baja XRS seats fit in the 97-2006 Jeep TJ's, JP magazine even did an article. regardless I sat in these seats at my local shop and had to have them. I got them for a fair price and brought them home.
Now being that I take my TJ off road and things break from time to time an off road enthusiast needs to be able to fix things and sometimes modify them.
This being said I have mounted my Courbeau Baja XRS seats in my 1997 Jeep TJ and the slide back an inch further than the stock seats did and the fully recline. How is this possible?
With the seats mounted slide them all the way back till the recline lever hits the roll bar, mark the range where it hits. Now for all you squeamish or non adventurous types turn back now.
Get a Big Hammer and relieve the roll bar in a about a 1/2 inch between your marks.
Viola! your seats will now slide all the way back.
If you are worried about modifying your roll bar look at the many other points where the factory either changes its shape or dills holes in it.
The roll and tumble still works, I do have to reach under and hit the lever manually at this point but I will make it easier access in the future.
I do like how the adapter sit you up a bit higher in the Jeep, I feel this gives me better view of the terrain.
I love the way the Baja XRS seats work, feel, and fit into my TJ.
