Dumb seat bracket question

I just bought a 85 CJ7 and the PO installed some cheap seats with some homemade bracket. I want to install some good seats like Mastercrafts. What kind of brackets do I need to buy? I was going to get some OEM off of ebad. Do I also need to get sliders or will the new seats come with them.

Get sliders for both sides, you'll like it better and so will your passenger. No they don't come with the seat or the bracket. You really only have three choices: Make your own brackets, buy OEM brackets on Ebay (or places like 4 Wheel Parts and JC Whitney) or buy aftermarket (I forgot the name of the company - but will edit this when I remember).

If you buy the Mastercrafts, go on quadratic.com, and look them up. You will also find the seat risers and sliders made by the same company. I think the Bestop risers and sliders will fit the Mastercrafts, but Corbeau seats require their own equipment.

Also, I really like the Bestop Trailmax II seats. They are really comfortable, last a long time, and the vinyl dries quickly if it gets wet. I swipe the water out of my seats with my hand, wait a few seconds, then they're dry. The side bolsters hold me in place well, but they don't get in the way of entering or exiting the jeep. A friend had some other seats with really high bolsters. They held you in place, but you had to climb up out of the seat before you could get out. PITA with a non-tilt steering wheel.

The other alternative to evilBay is to place a thread in JF's Wanted Forum. Plenty of resident CJ owners subscribe to that Forum.

Try 4 Wheel Parts. They had the brackets and sliders for the same price as ebay when you add shipping. I replace my old bent and rusty ones this spring and am glad I did - the drivers seat no longer leans toward the door
