Seat options for YJ

I need new seats for my Jeep. What options are out there that has little better cushion and adjustable back? Lack of adjustments on my Jeep is killing my back...

I saw videos online where people are swapping (with modification) from cars. There is nothing bolt on? If it helps, I only need drive seat...

Sun fire seats from...a Pontiac sun fire is a direct swap. I have bestop trailmax 2 seats. I like em. They're not adjustable but my jeep isn't built to drive for long periods anyway.

Corbeau Moab seats are comfortable and inexpensive. Plenty of neck and back support.

I have bestop trail max II adjustable seats and love them but the foam is very firm so if you want plush avoid them.

Hopefully the guy with the red seats and 5 point harness checks in because the search feature here is less than desirable. He has the seats I want but can't find the guy now that I have the cash to drop. #frustrating

Corbeau seat brackets with a little bit of metal work and you can use newer seats from a Chevy Aveo or other like small econ car.

I needed/wanted to go 1-2" lower than OEM seat height.

Been looking around for seats also. Too many projects getting my new to me YJ back into dependable and trail ready condition so the pennies need to be counted for now. Extreme Terrain has some Smittybilt seats, brand new for $109 a piece.

Check out the thread "Craigslist deal of the week". Post # 175.

It'll make the Smittybilt seats look real good.

Good Luck, L.M.

I just read on a Facebook site that 2006 Grand Prix seats bolt in with a minor mod. I guess the back holes line up and you only have to drill the front track for the studs to drop through.
I obviously haven’t done it but those seats look pretty nice if someone has one available.
