    I already asked about seats out of a newer chevy truck to put in my 79. But everywhere I look everyone want a ton of money for them, like they are rare or something.

    So what I figured is that if I am going to spend THAT much money for a set, I might as well buy a set of better seats for it.

    Something that is comfortable for a DD, even on long trips and provides some sort of moving room. Also may offer colors to match the inside prefereably.

    So if anyone knows of other companies, I already checked out mastercraft and the one in the product review on this site.

    THanks!

    How "fat-ass friendly" do you want the replacement seats? Some of the aftermarkets are restricted to those that are narrow of waist and tail.

    Well I am a husky guy, not fat, just buillt big. I would like to be moveable in them. I sat in some sparco seats before and they were tight. I know they are made to hold you in place. So nothing like that, I'm not drifting my k-5.

    i've been getting ready to do this and have been researching for awhile now...

    i was set on some Beards.. badass seats, can't be beat imo... but they run 7 to 800 a pair minimum...

    after checking Mastercrafts, Corbeau, etc, i've decided to go with the PRP's. the prices are outstanding and have a similar styling to Beards... the premier highbacks are 190 a piece.. fair amount of colors and options available too.. haven't checked with PRP, but i do know Beards are available in wider widths under the options..

    I ordered some PRP seats from a vendor on Pirate. The seats will be here tomorrow and read to go into the cage.

    Comp high backs, I ordered them just like the UAV check here http://coloradok5.com/prpseats.shtml

    I would definately recommend PRP, Mastercraft, Beard or Corbeau.

    Mastercraft has a really nice new reclinable suspension seat, big $$$
