what seats will fit CJ5

I might have missed it on the search, but if I did I am sure someone will tell me. If not can someone please help me find seats that will fit on my CJ5 risers? I have heard some pontiac seats will work, but not sure what years and type. Any help would be appreciated. I don't care what model as long as they are high backs, I am on an extreme budget. If I wasn't on a budget I would spend some cash on factory fit seats. Thanks

my cj5 has seats from an old dodge omni in it. I think you can use just about any seats from a compact car with some modifications

I am looking for the same thing you are. I am a 5'0 female and need seats that works on a slide bar where I can slide up and back as well as reclining where I can sit @ appropriate angle. This is my 1st order of business since, until I get replacement seats that allow me to reach the pedals, I will not be able to start working on the rest of the repairs. If you happen to find find some that work well for you please let me know and if I happen to find some that work well, I will do the same for you.

I went to the local junkyard and pulled seats from a 98 Grand Cherokee. I used some angle iron to make two bolt holes. Two of the bolt holes lined up exactly with the risers. Check my build in my sig to give you an idea of how I managed this. I also got the seatbelts from the same vehicle.

I picked up some seats from a 90's Cavalier.

I did the notch in the fender well
