front seat replacement yj

Are there any seats that would fit properly that i can possibly get at a junk yard? Helping a friend with an old Jeep as a play vehicle. Not looking to spend too much.

Late 90's cavalier or sunfire seats from what ive seen. Make sure they come out of a 2 door so that the seatback tilts forward

95-05 Cavalier/Sunfire seats to be exact. With a bit of welding, you can make just about any seat fit. I put 00-05 Celica seats in my '98 Cavalier back in the day and they are much more comfortable lol

Ditto on the Cavalier/Sunfire seats . Direct bolt in just unbolt seats from the adjusters and bolt the new seats to the jeep adjusters.

These guys are correct on the direct bolt in seats. The only downfall of switching to these seats is that the car seats will be cloth or velour, not a plastic or vinyl like a stock Jeep seat is.

The seats are much more comfortable than stock Jeep seats but the cloth is bad for mud and rain and such.

You think cloth is bad? How about light grey cloth? FROM JEEP! lol....I am in the process of cleaning the seats in my recently acquired YJ. I have the sales invoice that shows where the original owner optioned it with cloth seats. No rips or tears, but I'll have one hell of a time trying to keep these things clean!

Washing your hair more frequently than the PO will probably help alot too from the looks of it.

Use an all purpose cleaner ,a scrub brush , a pressure washer and a wet/ dry vacuum and you can make those seats look like new. NO I am not kidding.

My seats on a 92 YJ were worn and torn. I looked at having them recovered... 250 bucks and a month or so, then to the junkyard and everything there was just as bad. I wound up replacing both front seats with new ones from Bestop. They went in great and so far (just did it last week) I'm happy. The replacement cost was less than to recover the originals. They used the original seat frames, no issues on the install other than getting the old seats rusted bolts out.

Which model Bestop seat did you go with? I might put these in my Explorer.
