    If you have the $$, I recommend Flofits. You can get them at Seat Source in Riverside, CA - phone number 909-343-9430 - extremely comfortable and supportive. Pics of the on my site below. Cost about $800 to my door with a 20 minute install.

    Lots of other great options from the boneyard.........only limited by your imagination and install skills.

    I just bought a couple of Corbeau Baja SS's. They seem like they're going to work out pretty well for me, I just installed the passenger side. I think it was just over $300 for the pair.

    Hey, I have seen pics of those baja corbueas in the back of 4x4 mags I think...where did u get them from? I am thinking of getting one for my drivers seat. I want a good seat that is harness friendly...the passanger can hold on...I need my hands to hold the wheel. ;)

    COR-BAJA CORBEAU BAJA SS:-(65409) Grey Vinyl $167.00 ea 2 $334.00
    Order Subtotal: $334.00 Please Read Our Company Policies
    FLORIDA deliveries subject to $20.04 sales tax.
    Orders will be confirmed via email.

    UPS Ground: $7.95
    Grand Total: $341.95

    That's about what I paid for mine from Alamo Motorsports, I had to wait a couple of months because they were out of grey vinyl, but shipping was cheap and they even drop ship straight from the factory. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.alamomotorsports.com/>http://www.alamomotorsports.com/</a> You need to either order brackets or make some yourself for them to be able to fit a K-5, but it doesn't seem too hard to do.

    Hey Jason, what does the "suspension" on the seat mean ? And is it comfortable ?

    Suspension means that the seats are mostly hollow. The upholstrey and padding is stretched around the frame instead of havong a solid pad to sit on. This makes the seat lighter and should give you the ability to retighten the seat to account for stretch over the long run, while all you can do with other seats is replace the padding. I can't say a whole lot about the comfort as I only have one mounted so far and am still waiting on wheels and a few other things so I can finish my axle/engine/transmission/t-case swap and get it back on the road. I have sat in them and really like the feel so far, but can't vouch for long term comfort yet.
