Price: $200.00
Pros: Nice fit with OEM frame. Good support, bolstering, and quality.
Cons: Color fades in the sun easily.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Replaced original low back seats with Bestop Trailmax II full back seats. Very comfortable. Fabric is strong, but has faded in the sun. Great bolstering support to help you stay in place. Reclining as well. Adjustable headrest works well. Overall I am very pleased with these seats. I have had them for almost 8 years now.

Price: $400.00
Pros: clean look
Cons: Pricey.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: easy to install, seats are comfortable. Although I haven't ridden very far yet or on any trails to give a solid review. Replaced O'Reilly's racing seats, which felt like sitting on a board. These are softer and cushier, but a little too expensive for what they are.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Sturdy and durable material Easy to clean if don't wait too long
Cons: Didn't take long for them to start tearing Not waterproof Hard to clean if dirt or mud stays on too long
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a very comfortable and overall good seat for the price that you pay for them. Just do not let them sit with mud or dirt on them too long, because it will be a hassle to clean off. Although mine tore easily, it all depends on the type of abuse you put the seats through. Still a very good seat for the price and will do the job.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Took a little bit of hammering to get the rear hook to bolt in.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The seat is great if you want headrests for you kids. Other than that it doesn't seem too much better than stock. Its a little lighter and has a wider rear section. The install was simple.

It does fit in an LJ.

Price: $840.00
Pros: Great looking seats and easy to install.
Cons: Have to purchase $85.00 seat adapter bracket for each seat.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The rotary recline feature is a little (very little) hassle along with having to buy an $85.00 front seat bracket separately. Thank goodness I looked up the installation instructions before purchasing only the seats. However, these are excellent replacement seats of high quality, comfort and durability. Almost a perfect color match for the interior. Front seats are approximately $265 each and the rear fold and tumble seat is approximately $310 (all purchased at

Price: $170.00
Pros: Sturdy, cleans well, adjustable back.
Cons: Sits higher and takes some getting used to. Requires bestop seat mounting brackets.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Required me to purchase Bestop seat sliders and mounting brackets, which I did not know until i tried to install them on existing brackets/sliders.
Sits higher and lifts knees higher, making it necessary to move seat closer to reach clutch - if you got a belly, this could be a problem as steering wheel could get i way.
Cleans nicely, but gets hot in the sun. Real hot. Head rests are adjustable, as is seat back. Wider width can interfere with seat belt operation which causes belt to get caught in door.
Requires some extra strength the flip seat forwards for rear entry as well.

Pros: well made comfortable I like the look.
Cons: reclining knob instead of a leaver.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These seats look and feel great. they are well made. They do sit higher than stock but in my CJ5 I think that this contributes to better leg room.
The only thing I would change would be an adjustment lever instead of the twist knob to adjust the recline.

Pros: very solid seat. Great ride height on stock hardware. Firm but not too hard.
Cons: Does not recline, but reclining model available for more $$. Still very comfortable.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My 20 year old OEM seats were sagging and soft. These new Bestop seats have turned my driving experience into an entirely different thing. It's like a brand new Jeep. Wish I had changed to these last summer.
