Price: $800.00
Pros: Excellent build quality, very comfortable, and they retain all of the stock seat capabilities.
Cons: A royal pain to install the seats onto the additional brackets that adapt them to the stock slider/tilt mechanisms. At least for 97-02 TJ's.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 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.

Price: $480.00
Pros: Comfortable...bolsters....adjustable....reputation....
Cons: Adapter brackets raise seat about 1 inch....not a really big deal, used to it now.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 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.

Price: $1,300.00
Pros: Heated, Custom color, Extremely comfortable for all day or week long wheeling events
Cons: fairly pricey, but worth it
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 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.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: 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 !!

Price: $525.00
Pros: Tough as nails, repairable, holds you in place.
Cons: Not as comfortable as I'd like it to be for a $500+ seat. Also not wide enough for someone as big as me.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 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)....
