    Who has what kind of aftermarket seats in their trail trucks? I have had enough with my stock bench, the worn out foam on the edge and having to lean out the window to see the front wheel doesnt work very well together. I want something that is obviously comfortable enough to sit in all day, but not really difficult to get into. Having the option for 4 point harnesses in the future would be nice too. And naturally, not terribly expensive.

    I was originally looking at Corbeau Baja seats, but then I didnt want to give up easy access to the rear seats with the fixed back design. My seats are in good condition, and Ill probably leave them in for a while until I want to change.

    Corbeau, at least to me, had what I was looking for in price and quality.

    those aren't bad wonder how much layback there is. Cause of my cage my seats need to sit almost vertical. i have a 75 and my 78 seat i have in there are tight. And the rear seat is way to close to the front (no leg room) plus my youngest needs a car seat still.

    The car seat is why I want the bench in the back tied into the family cage, so my daughter can chill back there in safety...

    I got some MR2 seats out of a junkyard for $75. Attached them to the stock K5 seat brackets and they were fine.

    Mine are PRP highbacks. Fronts are 2" wider than normal to fit my caboose.
    Rear is a custom 36 inch back seat from PRP. All have 5 point harnesses and all are tied into the cage. I got rid of my center console and people in the back just walk around the front seats. I also ordered the slider mounts for the front seats so both me and my wife can drive. She does need a pillow to lift her up high enough to see over the dash. She is 5'2" and I am 6'1"

    I ordered the seams double stitched and no piping. Very comfy and hold you in but not terribly hard to get in and out of and room for 4 adults.

    Mastercrafts are comfy but not anymore than a PRP or Beard, but they are built a little better. PRP's are the cheap, Beards are in the middle, and MC's are at the top.

    I run Beard Superseats, 4 of them, and I like them alot, my back isn't sore after a day of trail running like it used to be.

    Any high quailty suspension seat is what you are looking for. any big brtand will be good. theres no such thing as a reclining suspension seat so thats out. the corbeau bajass are the best bang for buck in my opinion

    Well it looks like all the fancy aftermarket options are out of my price range right now so I might just get some camaro seats from a friend to use until I can afford better ones.

    I've been told the rule of thumb for finding car seats in a junkyard is: The gayer the car is the better the seats are.

    Mastercraft are making reclinable suspension seats now. have not herd any product reviews yet though. I have baja ss ultra's, then I bought Mastercraft Rubicons and decided to run the baja's in the rear. Rubicons are easier to get into. so I will ge running four buckets.
