Grand Prix Leather Heated seats!!

SO out of bordom I was reading up one replacement seats being mine are hammered junk and I hate them. Jumped on the ol' CL and sure enough found few options. One I'm leaning towards sounds good but curious some input.

They are our of a 98 Grand Prix 4 door. Far as the notes go on our stickies should be direct bolt in. They are grey leather with heat. Hoping that isn't to hard to wire up to a switch cause in winter that would rock! Or those cold nights when tops off. But as far as leather goes is that a good or bad thing in your beater,mudder,crawler. I feel its gonna be sticky but at least easy to clean and deal with wet no? Also as far as seat covers go nothing sticks to them so pointless to have. Should I hold out for a set of regular cloth seats?

Best part of it all is there mint condition AND ONLY $60.00!!!

Thanks but looks like there worse than the ones im taking out. Problem with mine is the driver seat top half bends back if I were to lean on it at all. not the lower just the top. So real annoying and also just soft from allt he years. These cavalier seats seem MINT shape and nice solid foam with sport cut to them. For 50 bucks sounds awesome.

O and I am not going leather I found a set closer and only $50 for cloth ones. They recline of course and bolt in direct. Pumped there clean and solid. Also sounds much more cozy.

I will. Going to pick seats up tonight im pumped. For only 50 bucks can't go wrong for what I was wanting to spend for real nice ones. With these i'll probably get my smitty covers with all the pockets now so I have more storage.


I'll update when I do install.

Wish I could change the thread title. I am not going with the leather heated ones. Although nice thats my idea is the sticking and whatnot. I went with a set closer to me I found. More sport cut and cloth so won't stink if they do get soaked. I am just gonna run my camo seat covers on those. Fun upgrade for so little money.

Picking up my SYE kit I found locally used as well. Pumped to get that in and build a traction bar finally and test it all out.

Ok update... NOT DIRECT BOLT IN. Starting to figure out that YJ's with older roll bar adn newer roll bar have different seats somehow. As far as the seats I got the bolts holes are 3" off which really stinks. I may just bolt in the back ones, along with some 1/2" spacers to kick back up and just weld in the front bracket.

Stock holes on seat mounts from Jeep are 11" and bolts holes on bottom of this seat is 14" or so. SO I will make some stuff work so I can use the stock seat slider track so its still adjustable. Otherwise I would just drill the seat mount from the jeep to the holes on the seat but it would have no forward back movement. I'll get one done and take pictures of the passanger side one so you can all see what I did.. or do... or get real mad and just throw it all out

It never even crossed my mind about cloth seats getting mold from rain. Wish I would of known that before I bought new ones.

Ah I think clotch is better than the leather that would hold it all under and keep it moist. Least you can use a vacuum and get into it real deep and let dry in sun. If anything be cleaner and you can always shampoo them.

So after a little debating and seeing some other peoples issue AFTER i already bought these. Seems like I can just do a little welding up and be great. Bunch of people made some adaptor plates this and whatnot. I Am just gonna center up a few things and weld it up. I'll take pics.

I had the same problem when I got some cavalier seats for my 89 and they weren't even close. I did, however, find that ford contour seats are a direct swap. The slider rails are rivetted to the bracket though so all you have to do is drill out the rivets and then drop a bolt through the hole where the rivet was and they'll match up perfectly with the holes on the YJ bracket. A cool thing about the contour seats is the driver seat has an armrest and you'll be able to recline, fold forward, and slide the seat. Just another option for ya.
