Sexy new Twisted Stitch seat, Corbeau harness, Rock Hard Harness bar :)

Yep. Finished installing my sweet new Twisted Stitch Vortex XLR reclining suspension seat, Corbeau 5-point harness, and Rock Hard Harness bar.
Also, figured out how to avoid issues with the airbag and seatbelt lights- run a search in electrical on how to DIY that.
Anyway, pics!: (Don't ask me why one is yellow- that was the wifey! )
Harness bar installed:

Pre-install:



Want to give a big thank you to Kenny at River Raider, and the guys at Twisted Stitch for hooking me up! Doesn't it look lonely, though- gotta buy the passenger seat, now- DAMN! Mark W.

P.S. Took a brief trail ride up the road- bounced it HARD over some rocks and such- my passenger was all over the place, while I barely moved- sweet

Is a harness bar required when running harnesses or no?

Oh, and I love those seats.

Duke,

I sent you a PM.

XLR's look awsome. But too snazzy for my daily driver.

I like safety upgrades; I hope you never need to try them out.

^ ME TOO! And yes, without a harness bar, you run the risk of compressing your spine in an accident- a harness bar or roll cage bar is key Mark W.

Why would you get the reclining seats if you put a harness bar in? Are you able to use the reclinging function?

Yes. Not fully, but a fair ways. The main reason I got reclining is I like being able to adjust the seat, as I run a fairly upright seat, while my wife likes a bit more lean back. It works well, but the thigh bolsters are a bit too stiff for her liking.

After 4 months with these, still love them. Getting in and out requires a bit of work, but nothing awful. It should be noted- I'm a 32-33" waist, 180 lbs., and I'd say MAYBE another two inches of waist, and these are maxed. They do offer a slightly larger frame.

Also, the window crank on the stock full doors DOES rub on the thigh bolster when cranking, but not terribly- Mark W.

In your photo it looks like you ran the should straps through the bar and I assume you bolted them to the floor from what I have been researching that could be a fatal mistake causes your spine to compress and death may result?

Thanks for showing concern but I already inquired about that and he is aware of that as you can see by the above posts I quoted. I would assume that they are bolted to the bottom of the bar.

I think he could have just wrapped them around bar or bolted them into the rear seat witch is shown in the instructions for the belt a bar is not always requried.

Yea, it was a couple years ago, but it was to inconvenient, so I put one on each side of the front seats !!

They're in the little slot at the side and are pretty secure, neither one has moved and I've hit some pretty good angles/bumps--

That position makes it a 3 second delay to grab one !!

Now, I've got a little tote bag suspended in the same place and I keep keys/airpressure gages/AEVPM/gloves !!

dont mean to bump and old thread, but not too many people talking about harness's. my brother has it in his head to get me a set for xmas, and I cant complain I think they look sweet. however, for a stock interior (read the normal seats, no harness bar) is anything an option? was looking at the corbeau 3 and 4 point harness's, was wondering if anyone had any experience with em

The 2-point is what we get stock, a 3-point has that and a crotch strap, a 4-point, has the shoulder and lap straps--HARNESS BAR REQUIRED--NO OPTIONS !

The 5-point has the shoulder straps/lap belt and crotch--HARNESS BAR REQUIRED--NO OPTIONS

good to know. it looks like the 3 and 4 point can get by with stock seats, 5 point needs custom, is that right? I certainly like the look of that harness bar, looks like a nice addition even if I don't mount a harness!

For occasional use, the stock seats are OK !
