Corbeau is a very good brand but there are a lot of really cheap shoddily constructed look-alikes that get very (!) poor reviews. Though they are more expensive, I'd stick with the major name brands and avoid the cheap Chinese imports like sold by Smittybilt.

I'm looking at seats myself and am thinking I'm just going to have to save for a little longer time to get a good brand. Don't forget you'll need to either buy or make seat adapters so whatever you choose can be mounted to the Jeep.

One more seat to avoid is Bestop's. I have had two sets of them and both had the side bolstering start collapsing from the foam deteriorating under the seat cover.

That's a shame, too. Everyone speaks pretty highly of their seat covers.

Bestop's seat covers are great, I've had them in both of my TJs. It's their seats I can't recommend, both sets I had developed the same problem with the foam rubber bolstering coming apart and collapsing.

Thanks for the input I didn't want to buy junk. That's why I was asking. Guess I'll have to save alittle more and get the name brand. I did read were I'll have to get a bracket or make some to fit the seats

the cj7 we have came with Bestop seats and my dad was working under the dash and i lean into the jeep to help him with my arm on the seat, broke right through. so i guess if this is a reocurring problem with Bestops seats then i will remember not to buy them either.

I would only consider Beard or Corbeau. The time you spend in your seat, last thing you want to do is skimp. You can get back problems and if your in a crash, you want them to hold up.

this is the same set's my 16 yr old is wanting in his 99 TJ but he wants "em in the back to. wonder if they mack one for the back like the one that came out in it ? just built like these. but from what you are asking they hug you. you don't slide and they are padded good. you could take a long trip and feel as good as what you have.
