New Corbeau Baja XRS seat!

I won the Corbeau Best RS seat design contest a few months back. Here is the picture that Corbeau emailed me today... They changed my original design a little. Im not sure if i like it but you guys let me know what yall think. I will be getting a pair of these seats for free, along with the matching brackets to mount them in my jeep. Also i think i will be getting new 4 point harnesses and possibly show my jeep in a major magazine with the new seats installed...

I like it. I am going to be due for new seats soon. The 97 seats are getting pretty bad. I think if you are going to spring for new seats might as well get something nice like this seat.

good job!

Those seats are pretty damn nice. I like them way better than the Moabs.

To the OP, do you have a pic installed? I've got an 06 as well with a tuffy center console, based on the measurements, it looks like it will be a tight fit between the roll bar padding and the console lid.

Amazing that you won this contest! I really like those seats and the only thing keeping me from ordering is that I'm afraid they will be too wide. I have a tuffy console and stock roll bar padding too.

See my post here : http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/wi...s-fit-1286927/

The roll bar padding and the tuffy consol are not really the issue. The location of the recline lever is just a bit wide and will hit the lower seat belt retractor which limits seat travel on the bottom rails. The tilt function is not really impacted by this. I'm 5' 9" and the seat is perfect. If I were any taller than that, I'd recommend against these seats, at least if you have an 03-06.

Thanks, I did see your other post (I have a post there too). I'm 6'0" and long in the legs so I tend to be back pretty far - hence my concern. I have an 04.

I had sent a question to corbeau and got this response:

"The Baja XRS seats will fit in your Jeep, but as you will find with most aftermarket seats the factory roll bar will not allow the seats to recline past it. We have the measurements of our seats on our website for you to compare them with your stock seats. "

I wish these came in a narrower version...

I had the corbeau moabs before I got these and they will work no problem with your roll bar padding and tuffy. I found the moabs to be a bit stiff, especially compared to the xrs suspension seats.
I'd recommend the all vinyl version of the moabs because the cloth in the cloth/vinyl seats is a bit "loose" and I didnt like the way it stretched out when I sat in the seats.

Looks like a tight fit in that TJ...
And I have a CJ7 with stock rollbar and padding with a 10" wide tuffy... I dont think they'd ever fit which sucks because I really like these seats and I want something comfy with suspension.

CJ7 Fitment

XRC seats are about 3-4 inches taller than the stock ones. The recline function is practically useless because the rollbar is in the way. If you arn't skinny i wouldnt recommend this seat. The side part that keeps you in place is very narrow. I'm not fat, but i do have wide shoulders and the seat can get really uncomfortable

I have installed these seats in my 98 TJ with a few minor modifications, I have them so I can slide all the way back and have full recline. I think the fit and look great.
