An economical solution for replacing worn factory bucket seats, these rugged, deeply contoured seats have firm, comfortable spring suspension are available in the same colors as the originals. Installation is quick and easy-these bucket seats use the same mounting hardware and bolt-in just like the original seats.
First the good. If you are looking for a seat that closely matches the original AMC seat this is what you need. Most of the premium seats would not fit in my CJ-7 due to the width of my security console. These are dimensionally the same as the originals with a similar stiching pattern and the color is a very close match (probably perfect but I only have a weathered sample). They bolted right up to the slider on the driver's side and the fixed mount for the passenger side with no modifications or adapters. The seat back feels to me like it has the same shape as the original. The side bolsters on the bottom are a little taller. However it is impossible for me to say whether this is a design difference or due to the original seats having flattened out over thirty years. Overall very happy with the purchase once the seats were installed. Now for the bad. The packaging is worthless. The seats are shipped in a corrugated carton with no packing material to protect the seat. The absense of packing material leaves huge voids inside the carton. The cartons on both of my seats collapsed and tore open. The top half of the seat backs were visible when delivered and all the hardware was missing from one seat. I'm very surprised the seats arrived intact. The seat is perfect if you are looking for an OEM style seat at a reasonable price. Just try to find them at a local off-road store as they do not ship well.
The instructions that they do not give you shows this product comes with the bolts needed to assemble. They come shipped with out instructions and the necessary bolts....seats are nice looking and comfortable...
No head support in the event of a rear end collison. Also be prepared to drill out the holes in the adapters since holes do not line up
Are seats vinyl or fabric ? Black ones say vinyl Spice denim doesn't say
Asked by from on
These seats are vinyl as well. The “denim” is the pattern not the material.
