    Or like mine. Premier Race Products Seats. $245 each, $399 for custom bench in rear. Best money spent so far on my rig.

    Hey Big Blzn,where did your roll bar come from? I need one so my kid can still get into the back seat.

    The PO made/had it made. It seams like just about a prof fabricator did it. I think it's a homebrew cage but the fabricator really knew what he was doing. If you want more picks let me know.

    This thread is about seats, so my two cents is cloth seats are no bueno with no top and mud...

    For the roll cage, keep in mind that we have full convertables and yours (77?) is a half cab which means you either have to come down a little (I can't remeber, but I think it is like a full inch) to clear your roof, or make a half cage just for the rear. One trick is to put that cage in one section at a time, and weld it in place...

    Sorry noahrob for the hijack. Don't know what type of money you want to spend but the seats I have from PRP can be had in dozens of fabrics and colors. Doesn't have to be cloth. Check out their website at www.prpseats.com. Or talk to Aaron the owner and he is very helpful. YOu could also have seat covers made that keep things clean and come off when you don't need them..

    I'm particular to Beard racing seats red-art.com

    all these seats are generally very similar in price. My 3rd seat (a new addition to my blazer) will be a Renegade suspension seat. They are made here in phoenix. It's being manufactured now so I don't know how well it will turn out. I've heard really good things and I will get it for around $275. My beards cost about $300 even per seat from 4 wheelers supply in phoenix

    Make sure you get ones with powdercoated frames. Get the seat covers too. It's nice to sit on a dry seat.

    Actually I was hoping someone would have some original seats and mounts as this has been a two year restoration project. I do however have an original roll bar in really good shape from from a 75 its just the factory back half bar.

    You can check the "For Sale" area if you're looking for original stuff.

    Be advised, posting "Parts Wanted" requests in this forum is against site rules... if you want to be able to post up that type of inquiry, you'll need to pony up the $25 membership fee, and use the proper forum.

    Good luck with your build, and post up some pics when you have time.
