    Anybody running seats out of another vehicle? Looking to swap in some buckets with some more support into my K5, but not a racing seat. I'd like to find some that still allow access to the rear seat, and that don't take tons of fabrication to make work. I will Fab new brackets if I have to though. Thanks and Pics are welcomed:D

    Seats look great. jen I first started pokin around I liked the corbeaus, but as I sat in an ultra wide recently, my skinny ass dont fit!! Neeed a pry bar to get me out. So, I might check out some PRP seats now.

    By the way Bigcountryx, if you go for a full harness, I can really recommend getting the ones with an innertia reel as it makes life MUCH easier unless you're doing any real hardcore driving.

    5-point will be way down the road, if ever. This is a DD / Mudder. Not to many rocks here in Louisiana, Mostly dirt and Gummy a$$ Clay, goupy mud! Just the way I like it lol:grin: I'm really just lookin' for some sporty, comfortable seats. I do like the PRP's and such though. I was origionally thinkin' that something like high back bucket from a car might work.
