After market seats

The drivers seat on my 96XJ needs to be replaced, after 400000 miles it shows some wear.
Looking at these -Corbeau #70019 seats at 4wd .
Any other suggestions and personal experience accepted.

Thanks

After market seats

No experience here, i need a new seat though, hoping some folks have some good options.

Carid.com has a tone of seats that say they fit

You might PM David Bricker. He has some nice aftermarket seats in Gomer.

Re: After market seats

I'm finding that $550 for seats and $250 for mounts (pair). May be a little more that I want to spend.

Re: After market seats

Just put a set of Baja RS's in mine last weekend. I like them, much more supportive than the stockers.

I managed to snag a pair of their XJ brackets used, which helped a bit with the overall cost

After market seats

FYI, it's. It too hard to adapt the stock XJ sliders for corbeau seats. I just used some 2x1/4" flat stock, and drilled the holes for the stock bracket and lined up holes for the corbeau. Worked fine, and you could add a couple welds of you wanted it more secure.

I also have a driver's corbeau seat bracket siting on a shelf if you're interested.

Re: After market seats

I just installed corbeau Moab seats in my 2000. I used the corbeau brackets I highly recommend them its way easier when doing install and they work great. The seats sit about an inch higher than stock so if your tall it could put your head in the roof. They are a little wider than stock so ther rub the center consul a little. They feel a lot firmer than stock. I am 5 foot 11 and I still have room for my head and I have a full roll cage but if I was any taller it could be a problem.
