Def dont miss my zj seat cause some fat #$%& had it before me so the seat had zero cushion left where he slid in and out, i had to lean right to keep from sliding into my door.

WK seats better than WJ? HUH? I have driven in both, and WJ seats blow the hard as a rock and uncomfortable WK seats into the weeds. Mind you this is comparing Overland to Overland trim levels.

My brother had a WK, his biggest grip was the garbage seats in the WK (besides the very plastic interior). WK are cheaply made compared to WJ's.

He wants my seats for his WK, it was that bad. The german idea of rock hard cheap leather did not work compared to the soft quality leather of the WJ's.

Now the new Grand Cherokee seats, they are far better than the WK, not as soft as the WJ, but better than the WK.

That was the original question but still unanswered , as i dont think its a popular mod but we have gathered WK seats are not has comfy has our wj's...... comfort it not of concern to me has I think our seats are horrible in comfort and quality at least compared to other vehicles I have owned and far less comfortable then my Infiniti SUV.

I loved my XJ seat, I've made peace with the WJ seat but it's probably one thing I miss the most.

Never sat in an WK, they must be better than the dub's?

I own a WK and I still think WJ seats are more comfortable, never heard if anyone swapping them though. I'd like to see this

X2. The couple times I drove in a wk I was extremely unimpressed with the interior quality, especially the seats. But, it was only a few times so I'm no expert. I'm 6'2" and love the way I fit in my wj.

I just test drove a 2007 WK with 60K and the V6. There must have been something wrong with the engine as it was a pig, turned on the air and had to rev to like 4K to get it to move like my 2002 does. Besides that, the SEATS WERE TERRIBLE, worst seat I have ever sat in, PERIOD.

I'd like to swap for a set of Overland seats, but would not waste a moment thinking of putting in that garbage from the WK.
