Hank826 Now this this thread is once again revived anyone have any clue about how to replace parts in the seat track my passenger side seat is loose and sloppy. Iím guessing it had something to do with the roller on the bottom of the seat. Feel free to yell at me for hijacking this forum

It's a very tight fit, with the pass seat I had to flip one of the mounts and drill my own holed, with the driver I flipped both brackets and drilled to move it away from center by an inch.
both seats are 2" shorter in the seat?

So I would gain 2" more head room?

222Doc seems that the outer edge of seats tend to get rough . I think its do to being lifted and when you get in you tend to smash the edge. For me any way legs are not good and getting in is more like doing a pull up. Comfort though suspension is better, then ridding the hard foam of today's seats. My old f250 stock seats you can sit in all day. more like a couch. best seats of old had springs, lol........all vehicles had suspension seat once long ago.

They're still great, only the piping wore badly where I slide over it getting in & out so I recommend it not be in your order. PRP came to the same conclusion, they no longer recommend piping though they'll use it if you want. Everything else is fine including the fabric which is holding up very well.

muddr1 Nice write up Jerry Thanks,
I have been looking at master craft but after reading your review, I have more thinking to do. Good thing I am not ready to pull the trigger yet. I like the fact you can order a slightly wider seat for the passenger. That might make the decision a little easier.

giles45shop Here's an easier way to position the Poly Harness bar without the use of duct tape

The bar is missing in this photo, but you should get the idea. one 2x4 across the bed rails and then some 2x6 or 2x8 pieces stacked up and shimmed to the proper heights. You can see the mounting area circled on the B-pillar, so i knew where to grind off the paint for welding.

These are Corbeau Baja SS seats and the back is signficantly lower than the PRP's. The crown of my head still hits the seatback (I'm 5'10"), but my shoulders are too high for the slot in the seat back, not to mention I'm using an H-style 5 point Crowe harness. So my belts will ride over the tops of the seat instead of through the slots. Not ideal, but I'm using a sternum strap and mounting belts close together on the harness bar, all of which should keep them from wanting to slip out of position on my shoulders.

tjazzkikr Thanks!! Pics would be great!

Jerry Bransford At first I drilled the floor and used the eye bolt and backing plate that came with the 3" lap belts to secure them to the floor. That worked fine but I just got through moving the eye-bolt up to the rear of the seat frame where it bolts to the seat base. The benefit being that the lap belt stays adjusted if I move the seat up or back a tad. I'll try to post up some pics later.

tjazzkikr Since this thread was brought back from the dead…

Jerry, can you posted some pics of how you mounted your lap belts? Did you go thru the tub or mount to seat?

Thanks!
