I'll get you a shot of mine tonight... You definately want a F & T.
Like the post above mentions, it gives you space when you need it.
Note: During my install (easy) it was necessary to drill two holes in the wheel wells for the mounting bracket on the rear lock. I hate drilling perfectly good metal!!
The bracket leaves the wheel well with an unsightly chunk of hardware above the rear tires in plain view... being a Quality Engineer, I hate this.
I used some clear RTV sealant (silicon) on the bottom of the bracket mount and then neatly removed the excess... this prevents water from getting between the two metals.... Then I painted over it all with a color that matched my wells ( white)
You'll definately want to do this...due to the fact that there is drilled metal PLUS the contact of dissimilar metals and the ability of water to get between them especailly in an area like the wheel well where the tires are constantly "bathing" that mount.
Piss-poor design on the mounting by Bestops part if you ask me...But its a sweet seat!
I got the "Aqua" F & T (neoprene)... I'm sending it back this week for a Black Denim.
I have had it installed for exactly 2 weeks and its already fading!!! and its fading Fast!
whats up with that? they know its a Jeep seat and they make it out of material that fades in two weeks?
If anyone has different seats or coverings Id be interested in knowing how well the different materials hold up.
