    I did the street belts. They are easier to get in and out of therefore increasing their use time. They are 4 point too. They also have the 5 point, but my nuts need to swing freely. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I will get my reciept # for ya tommorrow.

    I've got the Corbeau 4 point 2" belts with DOT style buckles. About $60 each IIRC... VERY nice and much more comfortable than the 3". Also much easier to use for kids and others who are not familiar with latch or cam locks...

    I second the 2" over 3". I have tried both, the 3" is awkward on the shoulders and waist of you are a little guy like me (5'5" 150lbs). I now run the 2" latch style with beards and love 'em. $55 ea for the belts.

    [​IMG] I bought some, they don't look to bad... No anti-sub belt (#5), but a set - 2 - 4point harnesses for $9.99 plus $17.50 shipping seemed to good to pass up. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Those look pretty nice. Do you have to tie down the loose ends to keep them from flapping in the wind? I guess that would only be a problem in a topless rig, but a couple of plastic clips could restrain them. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    either that seat is pretty tall, or you are a short guy. Those shoulder belts look like they come out where the base of my neck/back would sit...is that normal? I'm looking at a racing style seat from summit and a 5 point for my rig. Thing is I am only allowed to put one on the drivers side. "I'm not riding in one of those things" so sayeth the wife and so it shall be. She won't wheel with me anyway so I don't care hehe.

    good thread steve-o /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    as i'm stil looking for the best prices myself this will help.

    i was looking into simpson racing but on there site you have to buy everything separate.

    baddog - i was reading billavista's tech article about the corbeau, great seat harness, but i didn't like the way the shoulder restraint part bolted so far away from the seats. mine will be attached the a bar that's right behind the seat. did you do anything different with your belts to deal with the length?

    rj - do you have a link for those harnesses?

    personally safety to me is worth a couple extra bucks.
    I just bought 4 of the RJS 5 points for around 59.00 ea from oregon motorsports very nice quality.

    I thought the same as you guys and was only wearing the lap portion and now I have a hole in my lip from my face slamming into the steering wheel this weekend at dumont dunes now I will atleast wear my shoulder harnesses loose. /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif

    No big deal on the shoulder mounts. I ran mine over a bar (basically where you are talking about mounting yours) and down to the floor.

    OK, I think I like the idea of the 2" shoulder belts for comfort, what about the lap belt, I see where you can get a 3" lap with 2" shoulder or all 2", thoughts?
    Also, you can get the shoulder belts in a bolt in or roll cage mount, seems like the wrap around cage mount would be easier to mount?
    I dought I would use the sub belt, but I will have the provision for it in the seat anyway?

    These?

    I use all my belts (anti-sub too) when I'm fireroading or attempting something that might make me roll hard or several times. I run simpson for the driver (around 100 bucks) and pyrotech for the passenger (both brands came with brackets for wraparound or bolt on installs)

    remember: the belts must be so tight on the person wearing them. You can break your back if there is any play in your belts when you wreck hard.
