CJ7 Jeep Seats

Looking to upgrade the military style seats in my '79 CJ7. Perfer a full, highback reclineable seats. Without wanting to spend $500 on a pair of Besttop Trailmax, (or similar) are there are seats other then YJ ones that will Bolt into Factory CJ Risers? Or seats that need little modification to fit to the risers. Thanks for the future help and keeping the good Jeep info comming.

I have owned several of these seats over the years. Great seats for the money.

I just installed a set from a '94 sunbird in my 79cj7. Drilled a few holes in the seat bases and then bolted right up. I get only a little bit of recline before I hit the rollbar but plenty of adjstment to get comfortable, just not full recline. Great upgrade for the $40 it cost me.

For $400 for the pair, I really like these. They a comfortable and hold up well to the elements.

I had a set of older Chevy S10 Blazer seats in my 79. They were cheap from the junkyard and they bolted right on the risers.

I know these are more $$ but they are the most comfortable Jeep seats I have ever sat in. Wish I could put them in the F150! The only caution is that I'm not sure a real big guy/gal would fit width wise. I got a much better deal from my local 4x4 shop than I could find anywhere online.

Mustang seats are supposed to be relatively easy to install. Also heard the Jeep Liberty seats install with little modification.

One CJ I have TrailMax in, the other has a set out of an Izuzu SUV

Anyone really like one material over the other? Neoprene vs fabric vs vinyl?? I need seats and have no way to compare the material on them...

You're right that a bigger person wouldn't fit...not even a decently-sized person would fit. Basically, if you're 6' tall and 200 or better, don't buy these seats.

Anyone have an opinion on the material used on the seats? Vinyl vs. Fabric vs. Neoprene? Just trying to find out long term usage/wear/comfort before I buy..

I would recommend vinyl. cloth allows too much to soak in, especially in an open top, exposed vehicle, and neoprene just plain sucks for a seat (yep, that's what I said)

Why does the neoprene material suck? I need to get some soon and I like the idea of neoprene but why would it not be a good idea??
