Very Nice Seat , Looks Great, A little firm also a little tight fit. The instructions are backwards and a little vague
Accesability to reclineing adjustability knobs virtually impossible. Regret purchase, cann't justify labor cost to return!
I still have the fold and tumble mechanism from my OEM seat. Will I still have to purchase a different bracket to enable that function with this seat?

Hello, the Rugged Ridge XHD Reclining Seat does not require an adapter bracket! You will be able to reuse your bracket that has the fold and tumble feature with this seat!

Any other differences between this model seat and the Rugged Ridge Ultra seat besides the Fabric/Vinyl covering? i.e., are the insides the same? Thanks!
Asked by Brad from San Fernando Valley, CA on
Brad, the other difference besides the fabric/vinyl is that the XHD Ultra Seat has an adjustable/ removable headrest. The XHD Reclining Front Seat has the headrest built into the seat.

When I look at the item in my cart the material is listed as both black denim and automotive grade textured vinyl. Which is it or if both are used which material is used in what places?
Asked by John from redwood city,ca on
Hi John! The denim material of this seat is on the center section where your body comes into contact with the seat. The vinyl is used on the sides and rear of the seat.
