    Fixin to start the cage and would like to put in some comfy seats. I like the looks of the PRP's. Stockers dont have the support I like. How do you like em and what do you not like if anything?
    Thanks,

    Clay

    I have got them in mine. No problems riding a 12 hour trail either even for my wife.

    I have the buckets and a rear bench from PRP and love them. I did double stitching, no piping and 2 inches wider to fit my caboose. That was a smart move. I also did the slider mounts on both seats so they could be adjusted and mounted them so the far back position fit me and that way shorter people can drive my junk.

    Have 2 buckes and love them very supportive. But me and the lady are a little smaller than most. I am 6'2" and 160 she 5'4" 125. Have had larger friends girls and boys that thought they were a little to small in the width area. My only comlaint is how hot I get when riding in them in the summer but thats a compramize I am willing to make for the support.

    I've got 'em mounted to my cage & they're awesome, good support but still somewhat comfy. I had them delete the piping also and they even stitched a couple straps for the should harnesses to go through n/c. Good guys to deal with. I'm about 6' 1 and 210lb. probably should've gone with the oversized option but still fit good in them:D

    I have one for the driver's seat. I like it. I can really tell the difference when I have to ride in the passenger seat, I feel like I'm flopping all over the place. That's when I realized how nice the suspension seats were.

    I have the 2" wide version also, FWIW.

    When I flopped over into a creek bed this winter I was glad I had it. It held me in the seat nice even with regular seat belts. I was on the high side and I think I would have been hurting in a normal seat.

    February of last year I paid $209 for the extra wide premier high back, $60 for slider, and $25 shipping.

    i got a pair too

    and if i had it to do over again, i'd get the wider versions.

    other than that, they are not only really comfortable, but purdy too!

    i used the stock mounts and sliders to mount them and they fit just fine (after i cold turned the mounting tabs 90 degrees. i'll bet if you asked, they'd weld the tabs on pointed inwards and save you a bit of grief.

    ooh, and speaking of purdy, i put a custom upholstered interior in the blazer recently and the guys at prp used some of the material i sent them to make the seats to match the rest of the truck.

    great company, great seats.

    enjoy.

    So, do you recommend going to them direct, or through someone else?

    I went direct to them. I didn't know that you could get them any other way.

    Are any modifications needed to use their sliders in a 78 blazer?

    We are installing a set of daily drivers into a '85 blazer this week. Yes, there are mods that need to be done to use their sliders. We are integrating the seats/sliders into the customers existing cage. We should have pics of the finished product by Friday night if anyone is interested. We offer these seats as well if anyone is interested. Typically, we can get them to you cheaper than PRP can. :)

    ummm. funny i was actually looking at seats tonight. i was looking at the corbeau bajas. they are 21" wide, 21" deep, and 30" tall. pretty stylish... about 15lbs. and really cheap. we're talking about $159... but ive never sat in them so idk... if there is anyone on here who has'em i think some ppl on this thread might want to know how they stand up.:doah: i also just measured my seats in my burb and they measure about the same actually. and they are good up to a 38" waist. just thought i would tell you about them. :wink1:

    I just finished putting Corbeau Ultra wides in my truck and every one that sat inthem said something along teh lines of "Holy S$*t, these are nice", I didnt feel beat up after teh long weekend in Johnson valley either. I think any suspension seat is a good idea for a trail truck. Definitely better than flopping around in the stocker.
