Decided on new seats for my Commie 95 YJ

I had researched on line for 2 weeks and decided the cheaper seats will meet my needs. This Jeep is a toy for me that I will be lucky to drive 2000 miles a year. I have 9 other vehicles in my collection and only put 10 miles on my motorcyle so far (lots of rain). I will be lucky to go off roading 50 miles on some dirt roads around here if I have time. Only paid $2200 for my 95 4banger with 111,000 miles it so why put in over $40. Every new replacement seat out there has one or 2 crapie reviews about them. The ones in the junk yard all have the back bent way back like mine already has. The foam is deteroiating to touch too.
Went with the JC Whitney brand gray seats for $106 each wigh free shipping. NO TAX EITHER
If they desinegrate when I take them out of the box I'll be sure let you all know.

Fast delivery. Came in Saturday 6/19 in 2 boxes. Ordered 6/17 PM. I guess JC Whitney is only a couple hrs from me into Illinoise. No tax and no shipping kinda. They look good. Hope to put them in today after work?

New Seats

I am looking to replace my original broken down and torn seats. Can you post a pic of your new seats installed? Also, can you post the exact manufacturer and item number? Thanks.

good job! looks nice inside...

Im looking for some racing buckets, I do a lot of trail riding and mud running and I tell you what, the last time we went out (2 weeks ago) my tail got slammed! I came up out of the seat a couple times and as I was going down the jeep was going up and WHAM! I felt it all the way up my back! So, Im looking into some better harnesses and racing seats with a good bucket to hold me in

Just installed.
Vinyl Front Super Seat Recliner by Smittybilt - 1976-10 Wrangler and CJ;Spice denim vinyl;Contoured bucket seat;Unlimited recline positions with adjustable headrest. I wanted both the reclining adjustability and the removable headrest. Construction appears to be solid. Side bolsters on the upper are a little narrow for my modest girth, but usable. A little too wide to accomodate the console I had. May have to custom build a replacement.
