Yes: 4 / No: 0
Company Website:

I purchased this seat because it was cheap and looked like the Corbeau Baja RS. I could not find any reviews online, so I hope this review will help someone not make the mistake that I did.
It is a complete piece of junk. I purchased the adapter bracket along with it for my TJ. After installation, the seat sits up ~3" higher than the stock one. I'm 6'3" tall and my head touched the rollbar.
The seat is like a rock. I would compare it to the stiffness of a metal folding chair. I have never sat in a automotive seat this hard before.
The seat bottom is shaped like a W and the center section sits so high that it will probably ruin your prostate (if you're a dude).
Overall, it's a POS. Do not buy one.

I returned it and bought a Corbeau Baja RS and it's 20x better.

Price: $462.00
Pros: Good price Bolt on installation
Cons: Fabric bulge prevents slide from being fully tightened down and operating. Dear God they are high.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They look good and the simple recline mechanism while taking a while to adjust shouldn't rust and break like the OEM seat did. It will probably break in new and exciting ways that I can't think of. Biggest complaint is the fabric bulge underneath by the slide rails. In order to allow the seat to adjust the torque had to be lowered significantly, which has me nervouse for trail riding since my wife likes to run the jeep hard. I guess I'll just have to see.

Update: finally got the drive train sorted out and climbed in to take the jeep for a test drive. Tilt steering wheel may be my next upgrade. The added height of the seat makes getting in and out of the jeep interesting to say the least. My legs barely fit below the steering wheel. Although, driving with my knees is much simpler now. The seat also, makes shifting into second interesting if you,re 5'9" or shorter since it position puts the gear shift into the seat. The passenger seat is great.

Price: $244.99
Pros: Adjustable lumbar support, thick side bolsters
Cons: No factory match colors
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These seats are a long awaited upgrade. Anyone will tell you stock jeeps seats are junk when you get off road. The seats look great, I got the black w/ grey fabric insert. Lumbar support is a great upgrade. And the side bolsters are great. They keep you in the seat, but getting in and out is a breeze. I would deffinetly recommend these seats as a great upgrade with out the high price.
