Full suspension seats really make a big difference. We have Mastercraft Seats. I've seen Corbeau on the trail. My wife could go 1-2 days max with stock seats. Full suspension seats allows her back to make the entire trip. Definitely upgrade to your manufacturer of choice.

If you don't have at least one AR, forget about the seats.

If you have enough ARs, then the seats will be a good addition to your Jeep.

I got a set of Bestop seats and they work well for a DD and easy to moderate trail use.

Good Luck, L.M.

I second what wcjeep said. I too have the MasterCrafts, although not the best daily driver seat (constant in and out is tiring) but on road trips to Moab and days on the Trail they are the Cats Meow. I'm no spring chicken so I appreciate the comfort for my back. I suspect that Corbeau or PRP are equally comfortable.

Is it just the in/out that makes them less of a daily driver? What about comfort for daily driving?

Some seats have high sides that make the in/out a chore. Other full suspension seats have lower side bolsters. My Mastercrafts are very comfortable. I had some difficulty with the company when ordering the seats. The seats are great quality and very comfortable. Full suspension seats have no bottom. Most seats are built on a metal plate or frame. Full suspension seats absorb all of the energy. When your body runs out of energy to displace the seats return to their previous state. Most seats have cushion against steel. The steel is not forgiving.

My Jeep is not an everyday driver. Would never go back to factory style seats. I'd park the Jeep before driving it with factory style seats. I even had a full suspension child seat for my daughter.

I have the Baja XRS's. Absolutely love them.

First time I drove the Jeep after putting them in I thought I was driving a different Jeep, that's how good they are. They do have high side bolsters, but I just step on my rock rail and sit down into them instead of hitting the bolster each time I get in. Left foot on rail, grab the grab handle, step up onto rail, drop into seat.

They really wrap around you nicely, and when I go wheeling I can be in the Jeep 8 hours or more. No problem in these seats. And if it matters, I am a big guy (aka fat) and they fit my big butt just fine.

I also have the Baja RS they were expensive and I had buyers remorse till I got them installed and drove it a few days. Then a trip to the Grand Canyon from Denver made me a real believer. They do sit higher than stock seats but I adapted quickly. Again I suspect that Corbeau or PRP are equally awesome. I wouldn't have as much faith in the SmittyBilt's. And yes they are comfortable whether daily driving or on the trail.

Do suspension seats sag over time?
I had a mesh computer chair that sagged very quickly. I know the design and quality difference of the two. But the base idea is similar.

I have three herniated discs so I am looking for comfort and support. My old stock seats are not comfortable but they don't cause problems either. So I know anything will be an improvement.

Well i can't say that none of them sag, but my Mastercrafts have not and i doubt the corbeau or prp would. The webbing that creates the suspension looked pretty tough in the cut away I saw when I purchased my seats.

My front Mastercraft seats are about 12yrs old. No detectable sagging. I installed a new single Mastercraft seat last year in the back for my daughter. My old Mastercrafts still feel good when compared to the new seat.

I installed the Corbeau baja RS and there good comfortable seats. Tough to get in and out of, and if your waist is bigger, you wont fit.

I have owned the Corbeau Moabs for 3 years. Very, very nice. I did a 2k mile trip in August, fly fishing and camping between Phoenix and Denver and back, taking only back roads. At my age, the trip was a challenge, but the seats were very comfortable, and I'm sure that trip would have been more of a challenge without them. There are only two exceptions to my satisfaction with these seats: 1) They are almost too wide for my YJ. Seat belt binding is an issue. 2) I ordered neoprene covers, and in the Phoenix sun, they lasted only 3 seasons.

If I could do it again, I would probably go for the Bajas, despite the cost.

Tom, I was presented with the same issue. I bought the seats and love them! Then I bought an AR a couple months later and I love it, too!

ElwoodP, I bought Corbeau seats in August and I can't complain about them, so far. Of course, they are a lot more comfortable than the fiberglass racing seats that I replaced.

Just a couple questions on the Corbeau Bajas XRS for any Jk owners. Can you retain the factory seatbelts and the slide forward mechanism? Any issues on install?
Thanks

Try AR-15 & AK-47 Parts & Accessories | Primary Arms for AR parts much cheaper than Brownell's on most parts. Myself, I prefer AK after so many years with the AR platform I got burnt out on em.

Try AR-15 & AK-47 Parts & Accessories | Primary Arms might save enough to do both, however, if you live in Cali, New York, Chicago, DC, or any places like those you may be better off building a bolt action.

When is global warming going to melt enough ice caps to flood those places?
I do my part by driving a Jeep that gets 11-12 MPG.
Maybe I should get a private jet like Al Gore or Leo DeCaprio.

Good Luck, L.M.

"They think they are doing the right thing".

They also think they know what's best for me.
They also think that if you're extra nice to a bully, that the bully will be nice back.

In my experience I know what's best for me better than anyone else.
In my experience, I know how to handle a bully.

Don't allow a mass murderer to be executed (Aurora Theater shooter), but it's OK to murder your unborn baby.

They may be sincere (I expect many of them are), so was Jim jones and David Koresh.

Good Luck, L.M.

But...but the government knows best. We should be more like Europe, they say they are better just look at how much they make fun of us.

Okay that was total sarcasm.

I'm picking up two corbeaus on Saturday. Can I fit them in the back of my 2dr JK with the back seat out packaged as they come? Has anyone done this ?
