My drivers seat on the 99 TJ is starting to show signs of its age. The foam is giving out, and once that occurred the fabric started to rip.
I am not unhappy with the stock sport seats, but they are no longer adequate.
What are my options and price points? Is it possible to have these repaired at a local upholstery shop, or is it more economical and of better quality to just grab a replacement set out of of one of the catalogs?
I would like it to by as comfortable as the stock seats or better, and still be a reasonable match to the interior.
Do you know if the brackets either act like the “big boy” seat brackets or can be coupled with them?
The big boy brackets give you more legroom. In short, they allow the seat to slide further back, denying any rear seat legroom but making you nice and comfy up front when all the way back is not enough.
From a review Hmmm ->
“Most aftermarket seats will sit an inch or so higher than stock, due to the mounting bracket adapters. Aftermarket seat adapter brackets PLUS these Big Boy brackets mean your seat is quite a bit taller stock. So tall in fact, my hair is touching the soft top, and my winshield sun visors are directly in front of my eyes. I had to bend down to see my rearview mirror. So unfortunately I had to take the Big Boy brackets out.
Do you also know how well they match the “agate” color? I do believe Jeep changed the interior black color in 2003 to a more “black” color, but I’d like it to look stock. It looks like these seats might do the job.
