Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

And one is in.

Greased up the tracks and my sliders actually slide again baby.

Wow. Comfortable. Thanks @paulhead for all the advice. Do not sit much higher than my old seats. I actually like the view. Love the retractable harnesses this far... just gotta dial them in.

What's better is I already have a buyer for my old seats and harnesses.

Now just gotta train the muscle and movement memory to NOT have to lift my arse up and over a side bolster

Edit: both in.

Holy cow those look awesome. Is the harness tied into the rear seatbelt mount? And did you need to replace the seat brackets for shorter ones or did you stick with stock brackets? Those are my favorite seats out there, maybe one day ill get a pair, or at least a driver's seat lol.

They are tied into the C-Pillar stock mounting holes for the bench seat seatbelts. This keeps then well within the proper/safe and suggested angling tolerances for the harness belts.

They are bolted to my stock bracketry. As I did not have stock seats previously and am utilizing 87-90 seat brackets, there was very little change in height from my previous aftermarket seats to these ones. But forewarned, as advertised you do sit higher than where you have become accustomed to with OEM seats. Hence I am okay with it (call it conditioning). It works out as without sitting at this height it would be safest and most prudent to also get a proper harness bar to keep safe angling on the belts.

But man is it nice to able to recline and slide my seats again. In the future, if the cage is re-done, obviously I would tie in a harness bar and then get the lower corbeau branded seat brackets. Didn't see a need for that cost right now though with everything else I have already tied my money up into.

The retractability of the harnesses are really good for the DD duties... I basically rode without my former harness ever done up on the road because they locked you in. Now I can reach the stereo, the ash tray/cig lighter etc etc with these harnesses done up.

You'll get more ideas and responses without cluttering the wrong thread by starting your own thread in the technical section of the YJ forum.

i knew the seat would raise you up so im sure i would need the lower seat brackets, I'm 6ft3. The harness tie in to the c-pillar is very nice to allow you to reach the radio.

It looks good and thank you for explaining how it all works and ties into everything, it makes it much easier to understand.

Did some Googling, nice stuff! I took out the harness in my Seven because I was always locked in. Time to go shopping

Each harness even come with a clearly branded Corbeau tote bag. Good advertising for them, because I'll use them to carry some pertinent summer jeep stuff and strap them to the dirty dog roll cage netting like I do my hammock, sleeping pads and camping pillows.

My pleasure.

Lest we forget makes reaching for the MT shifter and Xfer case shifter more comfortable. I couldn't reach the TC shifter without loosening up the old harnesses.
