    Lets see the Aftermarket seat pictures in your blazers. Both Front and Rear. I am in the market to getting some and have been thinking about the Carbeau Baja SS buckets and rear bench seat for the kids.

    Give me your thoughts please.

    I have a set of Hunsaker Racing Synchros that I bought on ebay. They are pretty heavy duty and cost right at 400 shipped for the pair. They are a little narrow if you are a big guy, but they recline and have sliders. I mounted them on some brackets from a Dodge van I found in a junkyard.

    I will probably just have my rear seat recovered at some point. Its a little low on my list of priorities though.

    Anyway, here is a pic:

    Hey buddy,

    i got Corbeau ultras in the Wide and tall version in the front of mine. Even wide, they're still a little snug. Let me know if you want to drop by for a test sit before you shell out for them.

    Not much space under that seat. The seat mounting is almost touching the floor. As for head clearance, I have a friend that is 6.7" and fits fine back there.

    Here are some close up pics I found

    We went with PRP seat and will do it again.

    We have not ordered the bench seat yet but plan on getting a PRP bench seat as well.

    Check out Rock Buggy Supply for great prices.

    i run corbeau baja SS seats.. love em. The width is just right... with the harness snugged down you ain't moving at all when wheelin', which is exactly what ya want.

    the only way they could be better would be if they had the harness retainers at the shoulders instead of through the seat... like some Beard seats do. I've always liked that arrangement better.

    I have a set of beard seats from Redart. I like them alot. Sorry no pics, but I'll try to snap a few when I get home from work today and post em up. Also, Redart is in Cal so shipping for you might not be too bad or you might even be able to pick them up.

    Im curious how everybody has been mounting their seats. I want to run a set of corbeau's but have been puzzled about mounting. I want to figure out a way so people can get into the back seat without any problems.

    easiest way would be there seat brackets for the blazers which is part number D192T... Or try to use factory mounting?

    I didn't realize they made the brackets for the blazer. For some reason I have only seen the brackets made for Jeeps and what not... Guess thats what I get for lookin at my buddy's jeep mags... lol
