Aftermarket Seats??

Hello all, I've been looking into replacing my two front seats. I've looked at the Smittybilt XRC's and some Corbeau's.. Just looking into who has what, and any advice or opinions would be great. I'm 5'9 but would like a nice fit..

Thanks all, and please post pictures of you're set-up's and you're opinions.. Thanks again!!

I am thinking of changing mine out as well. I want to do a wider seat because the narrow racing seats that everyone has in the TJ's ans YJ's won't look right in the JK's since they are a little wider. I really am looking at the Corbeau LG1 or the Baja XP since they have the wider profile. Here are some pics I found on Google with the LG1's and I think they look awesome.

One thing I would look for in a seat is not only width but, short side bolsters so it's not a pain to get in and out.

I agree, I have the Baja SS in my fiance's TJ and the bolsters hold you in but for long rides they really drive me crazy.

PRP, Twisted Stitch, or Mastercraft. I wouldn't go anything but one of those. XRC's are knockoffs of Mastercraft and you get what you pay for, and Corbeau seats had that notorious recline failure problem. I don't know if they've resolved that yet.

Mastercraft fixed back seats cut a lot of weight too; you can save 125 lbs by swapping all seats.

Spend the money and get good seats. I had corbeaus in my tj and now have twisted stitch in my jk. After owning good seats I'd never buy anything besides prp, mastercraft, or twisted stitch. The quality and comfort are noticeably better.
