Question seat options

hey yall,
my tj's seats are the ugly-as-sin-cosby-sweater type, and to be totally honest, i hate em. lol they are falling apart and just kill the looks of my jeep.

i was looking at seat covers, but nice ones cost almost as much as new seats. so i started looking around at whats popular...

looks like bestop and corbeau make some nice ones...opinions? im considering the bestop trailmax 11's but idk. i think i just want solid black.

are there any other seats that can be modified to fit into a tj?
or any really good deals on nice, tight fitting covers?

thanks
Pat

I would check Craigslist or something like that for people selling seats, I just bought a set of 2004 rubicon seats for my 97, I'm putting them in this weekend, got the whole set with all of the mounting brackets for $250 so it's worth taking a look around

I'm wanting to get some more comfortable seats. After a 2-3 hours of driving, I have to get out of the thing.

I just ordered rr from extreme terrain in black denim. I've gotten as far as opening the box. I like the look and really think I will like the black denim. Biggest reason I ordered these is because I don't need to buy the expensive brackets. Orginal brackets are supposed to work.

I'll post pics when I get them installed next week.
