A little stiff and the mounts were a tad tall but otherwise this is one fine seat! I bought it because I'm 265lbs and break cheap seats constantly. Mastercraft has made a seat I don't see breaking! And it's pretty comfortable too!.

Update: After two years of use the seat did finally break. It was my fault though, as I'm 270lbs and pushed against it a little too hard! However, my neighbor was able to weld it back together and the local upholstery shop stapled the straps under the seat back on. Fixing it wasn't difficult and I've tried hard not to push so hard against it (when trying to get my wallet out after sitting down -- something I just avoid now by taking it out first -- you'd have to be there I guess)....

Comfortable but tight (for me). It is hard to get in and out as the sides are high and hard. They tend to crush your testicles when getting out if you are not careful or if you rush !!

These are teh most comfortable seats I have owned. Heated, Reclining, lumbar support, 5-point harness capable. With the heaters on, I don't worry too much abut having a top - even in winter.

Went to a 4point harness and wanted new seats. The factory seats were getting a bit worn. The adaptor brackets lifted the seat about an inch but quickly got used to the additional height. Also ordered with the lumbar support to change the seating position during longer trips.

The MasterCraft were a bit more expensive than comparable seats, but I have never read/heard a bad review and didn't want to gamble on a less expensive seat. Also added the matching rear seat cover (to retain the fold and tumble).

Again, very comfortable and would recommend.

NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES!

The Mastercraft R/S seats are GREAT. We us them 12 hrs a day when trail riding and rock crawling. They are totally adjustable and have SUPERIOR SUPPORT for the back and hips.

Very happy overall, just wish they were a bit wider.

The seats look great, are available in a number of color combo's if desired, although I chose all black. They are quite comfortable, and a definite upgrade over the factory seats. They recline, tilt, and basically do everything the factory seats can do.

The only real difficult part of the install, is getting the seats mounted to the factory sliders via the optional brackets. Everything else went smooth, once I figured out the rather vague instructions. The first seat took about 4 hours, with part of that having to do some manual drilling since my drill took a dump, but the second seat was about 2 hours, with a new drill. You only need to drill one hole per seat, to adapt a handle to function as the tilt mechanism to replace the factory pull handle on the factory seat.

It seems 03-06 TJ's are quite a bit easier, but it was still worth the effort. Suspension seats, even over speed bumps and whatnot make their benefits known. Yes, the seats are not cheap, but so far seem worth the cost and effort.
