front seat replacement!

I need to replace my front seats, what should I get?
I don't have a big wallet but willing to spend a little for this.

I bought Corbeau Moab's and I am utterly impressed! I got a great price from 4wheelparts, and they were quick to ship from Corbeau to the store, I had to wait about 3 weeks for the driver side mount though. (factory back ordered)

IIRC, I paid just under 500 for the Moab's with the seat adapters.
Anything less left the foam and fabric wearing out faster, and lots of reports that seat backs were breaking.

Those look nice do they retain the factory fold and tumble option?

Depends what you use your Jeep for. I swapped in WJ JGC seats as I do a lot of long distance driving in mine. They are way more comfortable than the stock seats. And I only paid $27 for both of them from my local pick and pull yard

Seem nice how do they ride and what are they made of. Been looking to replace my seats but couldn't find anything that kept the fold and tumble which I need since I always have passenger's.

ride much better than stock, keeps you put on the trail. After the 1st trip off road the Mrs. was very impressed with the comfort. I recommend them fully.

The only down side is the dang adapters that have to be bought (any aftermarket seat will require them for our TJ's) raise the seats about 3/4 of an inch. It took a little to get used to, but now I prefer the extra height.

If you are ever close to the triangle your welcome to come for a ride in mine.

As long as you buy a seat with reclining feature, and adapter brackets that retain the factory fold-n-tumble setup, you will have the same function as stock.
