Suspension Seats

I have been loking around at seats lately and these seems to be the best deal going



at 250 a set they seem like a steal

What I wanna know is if anyone as experience with these jcw seats, are they comfortable? What all was required to get them to go in? Are there adapters available?

corbeau has a lot of nice ones for around that price. They also have the correct adapters right on their site. the adapters run about 100$ each i think.

Corbeau is going to be twice that amount.That price is for 2 seats.If you really want suspension seats I would check into how and what those seats are made up of?I also like that fact of having my Corbeau's recline also.

i never recline so a fixed bask is a- ok for me as long as the passenger seat will tumble

Greg didn't have any more of the black Empi seats. I put some in and really like them. Mine is trail rig but I was in them for 5 hours a day and felt really good. The JCW looks very similar. The base is just like the Empi. I like those grey and black one!

Can someone who has fixed back seats like these tell me how the access to the back seat is?

Do you have to first slide the seat forward, then use that handle extension to tilt it? If that's correct, is it enough room to get back there?

The driver's seat in my '99 has seen better days so I was considering ordering some covers. For $200 for a pair of seats, it's hard to justify ordering covers. (I have tan interior)

I'm only hesitant because my kids are in the back seat of the Jeep several times a week, and I don't want it to turn into a problem getting them in and out.

I get that, but clearly it's not as simple as pulling one strap on the seat, causing it to tilt forward, slide forward on it's track, and tumble forward all in one shot.

I don't expect that same kind of simplicity. I just want to make sure I know what to expect before I buy some new seats and hate them.

if you look under your seat there is a lever, if you push it down it causes the tumble action to occur


this is what you would have to hit every time you need to get back there

Again, I understand that part. I'm looking for someone who runs a fixed back seat, and actually uses the back seat as well, to see how it is to live with them.

Lots of people say it's no problem, then I find out they still have factory seats.

It won't be easy to get in or out with these seats. It is doable for kids since that still can contort in ungodly positions. Even with my PSC cage they have fun getting in an out. They think it's a jungle gym!

Another nice option having the recliner...being able to tumble the pass seat easily!
