    anyone looking for seats might wanna take a peak at these..

    I'm always very leary of products from Whitney. But I actually sat in these before I learned where they where from.. A bud bought em for his raceboat, I looked at em and was surprised where they came from for how nice they are.. Apparently they are on clearence at $320 a pair..

    Inviting. Anybody sell these seats to check them out first? Pep Girls, Kragen, AutoZone, whatever. No offense, just a prudent shopper.

    Thanks for the info. My seats are original... trashed. Always lookin' for replacement.

    nah, its cool.. don't know about any "in store" locations.. but i was pretty impressed for the few seconds i sat in em... Not a suspension seat, but I would run em as a cheap alternative to PRP's, Beards, etc..

    I need new ones bad myself, trying to finish my floor and herculiner first, but if i had the cash this week, i woulda jumped on em..

    Do you think these seats would be comfortable for someone that is 6'2" and 240 lbs? I like to have room and not feel like I dont hae any room. What do you think?

    well, i'm about 6' 1" and 230 and i fit fine..

    they are a raised side seat, but i expect you'd contend with that on any of that style..

    I will say they wheren't quite as soft and mushy as my 25 yr old factories, but I thought the cushion, etc was all very nice.. much better than anything I usually expect when i hear JC Whitney..

    I'm sure a 10 hr stint in em might not be as comfy as factory, but I was pretty impressed for a non-suspension...

    one thing my bud said was he wasn't sure what color combos where left. his where the red insert/black side and they looked pretty sweet.. personally, I'm kinda hoping for orange insets on mine so i'm leaning torwards a custom PRP or Beard when the time comes..
