I have about 1200.oo to spend on new buckets and a console. I like the low buckets but I'm not sure how high they will be.

Re: New Bucket Seats

I've used Smittybilt stuff when I had my old Jeep, never had any problems or issues with their products. Heck I kept the center console when I sold my Jeep in case I ever get another. I've never used their seats though, so I have no idea about those or their comfort.

Re: New Bucket Seats

simple 1x1 square tube frame on stock slider tracks .

then set of seats from 2nd row chevy venture / montana style van .

man are they comfy yet firm foam . small bolsters and built in driver side cup holder x2 . . . 2 arm rests and recline .

score both for 25 bucks each of local craigslist few years back .

i might be taking out the head rests maybe . and the center console is a police unit for light switches / cb radio / and few OTHER toys . . .

it gives you a tad bit of lift and helps strighten out the legs in the cab for a more comfy ride . for me i might have to drop this one down just a hair off the tracks to solid mounts . . . time will tell . project not done yet .

Re: New Bucket Seats

Sweet K30 - where are you located at - I just did shop4seats in my truck about 3 months ago. If you wanted to look at them in person.

EDIT- Nevermind - I see you are in NY - I am in IA so pretty far away.

Re: New Bucket Seats

Hope you like them - they are high quality seats. The mounts they send with are not quite right - be ready to drill some new holes to get the seats to fit well.

I just hate it takes so long. I thought they may get them from China but I see they build the seats in Cal.

The PDF on the page says the seats are 26 in tall. Then probably ad 3-4 in for the brackets.

Re: New Bucket Seats

I had to re-work my brackets and such to get mine to sit lower- at first I used them the way they come and its a big change from the factory seats as far as height.

I will say - these seats could use some more cab space, they flat-out run out of rear space, if the cab was 1-2" longer than the fit would be better. I could see them being great in a crew cab.

I'm still working on getting mine better - but I am disappointed in the lack of design foresight - I sort of feel like they never really tried this in the 73-87 truck themselves. Great seats but they are not plug and play.
