Default ~ Replacement seats for the YJ ~

What are you sitting on?
There are many people that have swapped out the stock YJ seats for a seat that is not worn or torn, or even for more comfort.
If you swapped out your seats, post pics and info here please.

The most popular seat swap is the Pontiac Sunfire seats. They are a direct bolt in for the YJ and recline, have a separate headrest so four and five point belts work well with them, and are said to be much more comfortable than the stock YJ seat.

Pics and details are very much appreciated......


Direct bolt in swaps:
  • Sunfire: '95-'03, 2 Door only (4 door seats require some drilling)
  • Cavalier: '95-'03, 2 Door only (4 door seats require some drilling)'03 Cavi Write-up by instg8tor on Jeepforum
  • Sunbird: '99-'01, 2 Door only (4 door seats require some drilling)
  • Olds Acheiva: '96,'97
  • Grand Am: '95-'01
  • Grand Prix: '95-'01 (These WILL NOT direct bolt into a late 70's CJ.)


"98 Cavalier seats.....

This week i will be replacing my stock seats with Corbeau Baja RS up front, and Bestop Trailmax II in back

I chose the Corbeau with black vinyl bolsters and black fabric inserts, and the bestop is black denim sides with the dark grey cloth insert.. I will take a few pics when its all finished.

For reference:

Has anyone ever measured a 3rd row seat out of a SUV to see if they would fit the back seat space on a Wrangler? I like that some are split and fold and they would surely be more comfortable than the stock seat, like I really care cause I never ride back there. Just a thought.

I've seen where somebody put a Ford Ranger 60/40 seat in the front of a YJ, and one person put a split and fold out of something in the rear of a YJ.
I'll see if I can find the pics.
I like the new rear seat. I'd go that way but my roll bar has been customized to have bars come down at an angle and has headrests mounted on it like a Rhino. I have two kids that ride back there.

My son will be riding in the back of mine but he's still in a car seat so he wont get to experience the seat.. I occasionally have people in back.. I can imagine this summer with the top off ill have more back passengers
