|Jerry Bransford||The angle is adjustable via a washer or two between the seat & frame.|

I called PRP today. I wanted to find out what angle the daily driver seats were at.
So, I reclined my factory seats that angle, just to make sure I could live with it. I'm not sure. I normally like to sit up straight.
So while I continue to save up the cash, I'm going to be driving reclined back. I MAY want to spring for the Enduro reclining seats, but we'll see.

|mudmagnet63||Nice write up Jerry. I will second the comment about the side bolsters. The Corbleau seats in my 71 bronco had them and they were a PITA to slide in and out of. These look like they will provide support without interfering too much on entry and exit.|

So, how would you attach the lap belt? Isn't it attached to the factory seat?

What finally got installed last weekend were the shoulder harnesses. They attach to a new weld-in shoulder harness support bar ($50) from Poly Performance positioned behind the front seats. Poly Performance JEEP/TRUCK & BUGGY*::*Cage & Cage Accessories*::*Synergy Jeep TJ/LJ Shoulder Harness Bar for Stock Cage - 4X4 Off-Road Parts. The shoulder harnesses came from Racing Seatbelts.
When no one is available to help, you get creative with duct tape to position the support bar to be tack welded prior to final welding. This took some time, welding a shoulder harness bar in place deserves all the care you can give it.
It's important the support bar be at shoulder height. Mounting it too high or too low can cause major injuries through spinal compression. A very close friend of mine was killed in an offroad accident from improperly installed shoulder harnesses so be careful to do it right.
I went with 3" wide aircraft style seatbelts but for comfort, went with 2" shoulder harnesses. Having worn 3" shoulder harnesses in aircraft, I knew I didn't want anything that wide again... especially since my Jeep is a crawler, not a racer.
Shoulder harnesses aren't needed for all trails or forms of offroading but it's nice having them for when there's a little pucker factor happening.
Not to mention these won't lock up and strangle you when the Jeep is on a really steep section of trail like the factory shoulder harness will.

|louczar||Those prices are a lot cheaper than what I expected after seeing the product and build process!!!|

Very nice.And seats are def on my list.Under my Dirty Mudder seat covers are seats that are held together with duct tape.

|Jaxon1023||Did they say anything about the colors fading or tweed deteriating? Florida sun and beaches are extremely hot and I go doorless and topless as often as I can|

Bumping this up because I've been extremely tempted to place an order for these...
What color combination and fabric are your seats Jerry?
|07-02-2013 10:26 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||They have all vinyl or pleather seats if you need the seats to be to be waterproof. I wasn't worried about it since my TJ always has some sort of cover like the soft top or safari top on.|
|07-02-2013 09:57 PM|
|Verf||Jerry, did PRP have waterproof or resistant material? Or is it better to just buy covers so they can be removed|
|07-02-2013 05:46 PM|
|07-02-2013 05:34 PM|
They look great!
I love my Corbeau seats, but PRP was the runner-up.
