PostSubject: seats   Sun Jul 27, 2008 6:46 pm

all right i'm looking at getting some new seats for the zj. I'm looking for some decent waterproof seats that are the 5 point harness style and are about middle of the road for cost. When it comes to this type of stuff i dont no to much about it so if someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Funny you posted this.. I am pulling my doors off the xj today and I started looking. In the past I have always run Corbeau but I would also like to find something alittle more economical. I know Chris Lloyd was thinking about seats. Anyone else possibly interested in a group buy??

I have been eyeing up mastercraft$$$. looking PRP's also but the mastercrafts have some stuff I like over PRPs. I think the only ones that are weather proof are the plastic or aluminum ones. But you can get covers for them for when you not in them, but they're $$$ too.

checked out the mastercrafts and the corbeau. i have to say the mastercrafts are sweet but look like a little more money then the corbeau. For mastercrat i was looking at the rubicon and for corbeau I was thinking baja ultra. What do you all think?

I researched this back in march and got some feedback from other clubs. I liked the baja ultra SS.
Here is the link with some feedback.

If going with mastercraft the rubicon would be a good choice because of the lower sides. it would make it easier to get in and out. I am planning on door bars so it would't matter for me, it would be a pain in the ass to get in either way. The prp's are about the same price as the corbeau ultra's but PRP have more options.

depends on the price we could get but I might be up for a group buy. I hate the seats I have in the YJ. I have been thinking about the dirt cheep seats from JC Wit and how long they would last.
http://www.jcwhitney.com/Jeep-Shop/GP_2015962_N_111+10201+600027425_10101.jcw

That price is for a pair

I did see those but they are fabric and not waterproof. Considering what I'm doing with the CJ i'll probably need vinyl seats to clean the mud off with a spray hose. Seats like those are already price very low so i doubt there will be much benefit to a group buy on that one since the profit margin is quite small. thoughts?

You are right about a group buy on the JC seats that i would say is the bottom line price. They would not be waterproof but my seats now are not waterproof but that would be nice sometimes. I will have to see what deal we can find before i make my mind up i think. I agree you will need a super waterproof seat ( maybe a waterproof you to )

They have the reclining version for $20 more but they do not tilt forward to access the rear.

Just a warning though I have read in another forum that they can be a little tight at the shoudlers.

Nick had a great idea. Checking vehicles at big dogs for racing seats and actually sitting in them to try them out first. Means we might want to actually get to a morning briefing early.

The only benifit to buying the seats through us is we are cheaper than advertised prices that i have seen online. There is no shipping brake if a large # of seats are ordered, this is because PRP does not give us a shipping brake so we can not pass one on to the end buyer. These seats would also be shipped directly to the purchaser and we would never see them.


thanks

Spoke to Randy Wood today and he can give us a very good deal on either the Corbeau or PRP seats. We'll see them at big dogs and figure it out.

I'm going to order the corbeau ultra seats from randy. I'll let everyone know how it works out. really no benefit to a group buy from what I understand.

I will be happy to get seats for anyone who wants them , I suggest the Corbeau seats as I get better price breaks from them and I think they are a great seat , give me a call and we can discuss price for whatever seat you want

I'll be in touch in the next few weeks about getting two seats off of you. Just got to let the funds catch up some.
