Purchased a pair of Bestop TrailMax™ II Pro seats from Quadratec. Good,Comfortable seat for short people. There is a flaw in them that will not allow the seat to slide back in the full rear position. The new style back support release lever cover hits the roll bar. Talked to Chrystal at Bestop and she stated that because the seats are a little wider and the seat is a universal seat adapted for the TJ, this caused the issue. Bestop has no answer for this issue at this time. I suggested taking off the plastic cover, and then install there seat covers over the new seats and she stated that there seat covers don't fit there seats only factory Jeep seats do to there seats are wider than factory. So if you are looking at new seats beware that the reclining control hits the roll bar when the protective cover is installed on the seats, so if your not to long legged there a good seat option.
ran into a similar problem when I installed the bestop seats in my wifes old YJ. The seats are slightly wider and also they are taller. For me being 6'7" it made driving her YJ a real pain. On both our current TJ's instead of replacing the seats we opted for the iggee seat covers. They fit nice and tight and look like a replacement seat. Also couldn't beat the price. Got two complete sets for front and rear seats shipped for around $240.00.
