Smitty Bilt XRC Seats

Not bad , but do not leave much room for a center console between the seats . They do sit higher than the original style seats .

I think I would tell someone to spend the extra money. Mostly because of the fading. I wanted black seats, they were grey like old jeans within two months
I feel I paid too much to have seats that don't look sharp.
They rub on the tuffy center console which causes serious damage on the sides. This is NOT Smittybilt's fault as I am sure they were built with stock consoles in mind, but I wanted to put it out there.

These seats were a really easy install. I like that they still allow the seats to recline and the seats also pull forward to allow people into the back seat.

I like these seats for the price. I have had a couple of grommets fall out that are there for no apparent reason. My friends complain that they are to narrow but I just tell them to work on their child bearing hips.

These seats look nice and are very inexpensive for a budget jeeper. bolt directly to the stock CJ frame. I had to add body shims to the seats to make them fit. No problem there. Being 5'7", the seat sit too high up and I couldn't reach the pedals. So I added a lower back support, everything is good. The rachet mechanism is a little cheap. If a ton of pressure is put on the seat back, it could come out of position. I have had no problem while wheeling and find the seat comfortable even with the short falls. If your on a budget, they are a decent alternative as they are an identical seat to the mastercrafts.

They are so high I can barely get my legs past the wheel getting in/out. I'm 6'5" tall so reaching the pedals is no prob, but height is too much, they're going back.
Anyone suggest a comparable seat in vinyl that is the oem height??

I would only recomend these to someone if they got them cheap. If I had to pay full price I would be in $700.00 range for these seats. There not worth that. Lucky for me i'm into them for a third of that. Other that that great seat.

Over all satisfied with the seats but the adapter brackets came with different bolts and directions were wrong/different than what I had to work with.

Beware, these XRC seats do not fit a 97-02 TJ, every website states that it does, but it does not, I call smittybilt, they say oh no those dont fit your jeep, I tell them right on their website that it does, guy tells me ya we need to work on that.... Really because now im looking at a 300 paper weight.

Just trying to get the info out there, so you dont end up like me

99 TJ : 4 banger
