Get us some install pics, and I would also appreciate the difference in clearance between your head and the roof. How much do you gain/lose compared to the stock seats?
Come out to PSR in March / April and you can see for yourself!

Re: PRP seats

Got around to installing them. Had to make new brackets. Super happy with them. Not as plush as the factory seats but way better support. They are very comfortable, warm in the cold weather, about the same size (rear passengers wont be smashed) and the factory seat belt seems to work well. They are about 1" shorter which is nice. So far they are a bit difficult to get in and out of, I am 165lbs at 5' 11". I am sure I will get used to it. The upper part is wider so not much room between the seats. Build quality is extremely nice compared to the price (I think they could charge more).

When you want to be someone you drive a lifted JK, when you already know who you are you drive an old XJ.

Re: PRP seats

When you say they are about 1" shorter do you mean 1" more space between your own noggin and the roof or that the back measures 1" less in height?

IOW, is it your own rear end that sits lower, or the headrest that sits lower?

PRP seats

I also got around to installing mine. IMO they sat an inch higher than stock seats. And using PRP brackets on stock mounts, the seats sat leaned back too far for me. So i chopped the front of the brackets and lowered them about an inch and a half. They are much more comfortable than stock. But are a pain in the ass to get in and out of. I figured thats just because I'm not a little guy.. 6'0" 280lbs

The seat height is about the same (headrest height vs stock headrest height). The whole seat is 1" lower. I built the brackets that way on purpose though as I wanted to be a bit lower, that's the one thing I hate about the XJ, the seating geometry is was to high. So yes, I gained 1" additional space between my head and the roof.

Re: PRP seats

Thank you.

That suggests I can pull this off one way or another. If not with PRP's brackets then with brackets of my own fabrication.

The brackets were super easy to make. Use my pick as a guide. They were 1/8" by 1" angle iron.
