So I bought new front bestop seats (TRAIL MAX II, I believe) for my 93 and when I mounted them, not only are they too high and too close (got use to that already), the driver side is not even center on the steering wheel... way off center (pics below). I don't want to mount my new center console yet until I figure this out or it will be off center too and need to be remounted once I reposition the seat(s). Has anyone ever run into this problem? If so, what was the end result; what did you do to fix it? Thanks! Ok, so apparently I have to delete some photos before I can post any more but I want to get this out there now and will post photos once I figure that out. It looks like 2-3 inches off center... hmmmm
I had same problem...DONT BUY BESTTOP SEAT BRACKETS...I bought new mastercraft seats & figured I'd just get new sliders/ brackets...but they sit about 2" higher! My legs were on the wheel & head touching my sun top...I'm 5'9...so put on old brackets but still seems off :>( prob. Look for new stock jeep brackets
any idea where to find some good used seat bracketry so I can avoid the height issue with the bestops? racing buckets in now with aftermarket brackets and it sits too high. owner didn't keep the factory ones.
Darcong, is your seat off center toward the middle of the Jeep ? My seat is almost touching the console and I dont have over two inches between the door and the seat.
Yes, they are off center towards the middle of the Jeep... From what I gather, they come like that from the factory. I'm gonna tackle that issue but not real soon, I have other stuff I need to do to her first... I will post my fix though
Never had noticed it till I read this thread, but the seat on my 89 is off centered as well. Now that I've noticed it, every time I sit in it I can tell it even more
Ive been reading various jeep forums since i got my yj in 93. This topic has come up a few times where someone notices the off center wheel and post about it, then its followed with a bunch of "i never noticed before, but now it bugs me" replies, then its as quickly forgotten as seeing the wipers on the windshield
