    In a long line of upgrades,I think new seats will be needed in the near future for the K5...Anyone want to reccomend a particular brand/model? New? ,used? They don't need to be high dollar racing seats,(but it might be nice)more like comfort,support,drive all day,ect...Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    i have 2 corbeau baja ultra ss(frt) & 2 normal baja's(rear) in my rig i like them o.k. they would be way to bulky for a d.d. though.

    i think the beards & the mastercrafts are nicer & a little more comfy, but the price is a good bit higher for them also. those are the only seats i have any experience w/

    u could have what u got re-upholstered (splg). get someone good to do it & u will be happy w. it for many, many years.

    I'm seriously thinking about getting Premier seats. The suspension seats are supposed to be real nice for the trail. The side bolstering would make it a pain getting in and out for a daily driver, at least for a big fella like me.

    There's a write Steve did recently for the UAV. I think you can link it off the home page.

    I've got recaro recliners which are real nice in my '78 but I'm not sure how they'd hold up to seriuos wheelin. You can see them in my photo link below.
