Corbeau Seats?

Any experience with Corbeau seats. I kind of like the RS for my style but haven't found one to sit in. I sat in the XRS and it felt pretty darn good, it's just a little "racey" looking for the old man.

Baja RS


Baja XRS

personally like the xrs i also think they are more comfortable...

best way to make a decision is to go to a 4 wheel parts or equivalent and sit in them and find witch ones are more comfortable for you, my back is a little jacked up so whats best for me may not be for you

i always say function over form

I sat in Corbeau and various other brands of seats & ended up getting a set of PRP Daily Driver suspension seats. In fact, I just received them today & got a good start on getting the first one installed. PRP's Daily Driver suspension seats hold you in more securely than the factory seats but they don't have the extra-deep bolsters that are a PITA to have to get in & out of that true racing seats do.

I'll be doing a writeup on them within the next several weeks but whatever brand you go with, you'll love them. You can't go wrong with Corbeau, PRP, etc.

Yeah I'm pretty much function over form as well. 4 Wheel Parts is where I sat in the XRS but it was the only Corbeau seat they had. Other than that was Bestop, Smittybilt and I think one Mastercraft. The XRS surprised me and definitely felt great to sit in. The bolster depth on the RS looks harder to get in as well.

I have heard of the PRP's but honestly have really not looked in to them. I will take a peek. Trying to make a decision in the next week.

Thanks for the replies.

This is the PRP seat I chose PRP Seats. Daily Driver which has a fixed seat back angle but it slides back & forth/tips using the OE seat mechanism (tips only if the OE seat mechanism tips). They have others that recline, all of theirs are suspension seats.

i agree the xrs does look and feel like it will be a pain to get in and out of...

i also worry about how the left side will wear down and how fast it will from getting in and out

I had a set in my 71 bronco. I loved them very comfortable. She was a joy to be in on the trails or long highway drives.
