Having installed a few sets of seats, I know some are very simple to make or reuse your own brackets for. If some scrap metal I have in my junk pile can be used with a bit of simple welding, I'd rather do that than pay $80 for a pair of adapters.

Good point, and I often do some of these things myself too. I'd probably just go with their total bracket set, as I usually don't have time to put into fabrication. I do like those seats, though, and for the money they are really nice. Very comfy and give a sense of safety. Take care.

You can definitely make your own adapter brackets (adapting to the OEM brackets). You can see in the initial post, I attempted to make my own and came up with a setup, but as soon as I bolted it in Jeep with the seat on it, I realized it sat way too high for my 6'5" self.
The full replacement brackets keep the seating right at stock height.

Not to revive a dead thread, but I wanted to say thanks to the OP because this helped me make my decision on what seats to buy. I now have a set of these on the way. I chose the adapter brackets because I have a five year old that can climb over the center console now, but will need to be able to climb behind in the future.

X2 I am 90% sure. And I have dogs versus kids that like to climb through =)

I love the Corbeau RS reclining seats. Super comfy, I want a set soon. Curious can you go into detail on the rear seat? I know its not a fold and tumble design.......but can it be quick disconnected? How did it install? Details? Pics?

Why the gts 2 in the front? How do the two compare? I am trying to decide what to get.

I guess I never posted my thread on the rear Baja bench. Here it is from another forum.

*Still LOVE my seats!




08/10/12
I am finally able to report the completion of one project for my TJ...the seat conversion.
At the start of the year, I installed a set of Corbeau Baja RS seats. My factory driver's seat was shot. Instead of replacing that one seat, I decided to jump my build plan a few steps and went for the upgrade.

The first part of the upgrade was swapping in the front seats. The second part was to swap out the rear seat to accomplish a full matching set. It was always in the eventual plan to add the rear seat; however, I am happy to say that my wife expedited that step. Her fear was Corbeau would discontinue the seat, or they would change the color options. I am ashamed to say that I let her think that was a possibility


On to the seat. I placed my order with Nate at Corbeau. He's a great guy to deal with; very helpful and very responsive.
The front seats were ordered through quadratec.com, and I had no issue with that transaction, but this go-round I decided to go straight to the source to possibly make a new connection.

The seat ordered was the Corbeau 40-Inch Baja Bench seat.
http://www.corbeau.com/products/benc...ch_baja_bench/
This seat is designed with the TJ in mind. They also offer a 36" and 42" bench seat, but the 40" is ideal for a direct fit into a TJ.
I ordered the seat with the black cloth front and black vinyl rear, to match the front seats.

After my attempts at DIYing adapter brackets for the front seats (as was documented in my front seat thread, noted above), and eventually just buying the Corbeau brackets, I decided I would skip that headache and just ordered the TJ specific bracket for this seat, from the start.


The seat arrived in four days from ordering.





The seat and bracket were sufficiently packaged.





A quick unpacking revealed both items in perfect condition, completely unscathed.






I will admit at this point, I jumped the gun a bit. Before bolting the bracket to the seat, the female-end of the seat belt should be installed in the seat. With the bracket in place, there is not enough room to push the clicker part through the already tight hole.





With that error realized, the bracket was removed and the seatbelt clicker was put in place.





With that exercise complete and lesson learned, I addressed the actual belt portion of the seat belt. Before bolting the bracket to the tub, the belt needs to be routed through the slits in the seat. There will not be room to do this later.





When bolting the bracket in place, it is wise to only partially start the installation of the bolts. They can all be tightened once all five bolts are in place.







After tightening all five bolts (includes the single rear seat belt bolt), the seat is ready for a very eager five year old to enjoy his new seat.






....said eager five year old.
