    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some ideas on what to use for front seats.. My front seats now are almost broken and the foam and springs are pretty shot. I was thinking about using two summit racing seats. They recline and fold forward for the rear passenger as well as slide. Any other ideas ? I would love to see some pictures if anybody has any. Thanks!

    I used seats from a '98 grand cherokee, paid $75.00 for the pair. I'm real happy with the look and feel.

    Any other ideas ? Where are some good places to look for seats out of something else ? The junkyard ?

    Yes, you can get them at an auto recycler, but if you don't want rolling eyes and disgusted sighs, do the research and ask for specific seats. Do not say, " what seats will fit in my blazer" if you want to make friends at the yard.

    I used early 90's cavalier seats, paid 40 bux for them. Real comfy but did require some Tweaking to bolt them in.

    I have the high back in my truck. They were in the truck when I bought it. The PO hacked the mounting. I redid the mounts to make them sit right. I love these seats. New ones are pricey.

    I just recovered them today from - Prp Seats

    I tried Jeep seats, before recovering the suspension seats. I hated the Jeep seats and I didn't like the car seats I tried. I broke down and spent the money recovering the high backs and I have no regrets about it now.

    Some of the Caravan seats - 90 models will bolt in real easy.

    I went with these off of ebay. Look under "PAIR UNIVERSAL JDM FULLY RECLINABLE RACING SEATS BK/BLU". They have a variety of colors. They were pretty inexpensive, slide, and recline. I don't think they will last more than a few seasons, but for the price, they were worth it:
