Seats

What seats do you all recommend getting? I was looking at Mastercraft seats just for the pure comfort they allow, but darn are they $$$. I am willing to shell out the money for quality seats like that, I just need to know which ones are worth getting and which ones people like.

My truck:
1996 Daily driver.
Sees a mixed terrain offroad. Usually slow trails with rocks and ruts, etc (California Sierras), but also goes fast in Pismo occasionally.

Reason for new seats:
Front driver and passenger backs wobble like crazy front to back and side to side. Maybe it is just something with the internals and I can pull them out and adjust it, maybe its time for new seats. Other than wobbly backs, the seats are in great condition.

Which seats are nice, comfortable, and worth spending the $$ on? Oh, and I would like to keep the tan color interior and leather matching (or similar, something that will flow with the rear bench).

prp, beard and/or mastercraft are all great seats with the same amount of comfort. if they are for a daily driver just make sure to get lower sides so getting in and out isn't a pain in the ass. billy1911 on here does work for hunsaker and gets deals on seats.

I love my Mastercraft RS seats. They are perfect for a daily driver with the lower sides to ease entry and with the reclining backs they make getting into the back seat much easier. They bolted up to the stock mounts with drilling just 2 holes.

Seats

Here is a pic of my high back Beards in my 96
Bolsters stick up to high
High back brevents passenger seat from being functional.
They have redesigned the seat mount so the seat now is proper height.
Very comfortable in all respects

I need something functional, since the back seat gets used quite often. I'll be willing to pay the $500 each tag if they are worth it (fit, comfort, color match, etc). What kind of deals can you get Billy? Im not looking for something right now, but by June I will want some nicer seats that offer me more support and are more comfortable.

Have you looked at the Enduro seats by Beard? I have a set for my CJ and they are pretty nice. Though they don't recline like the Master Craft seats do.

I"ve had the reclining Mastercraft's for awhile now with quite a bit of time in the seat and have to say they are probably the best seats I've owned. I've had Flofit, Recaros, Procar, and Bestop to compare to. Needed the recliner for backseat access so helped with the choice.

Get some pictures op GKR!!!! Id like to see some pictures from whoever has them. Any quality seat that is, Im not a fan of those cheap-o seats Kragens/autozone/summit sells for like $125.

Yeah Mastercrafts are pricey, but if it is worth the cash and there are noticeable differences then might as well shell out the money right? Do they make those GTS IIs in tan? I like the look of Mastercrafts because they sell tan ones that are leather on the outside/backs and cloth where you sit. Id like to keep the tan leather styling if I could, so the seats match front and rear for the most part.

I have a pair of PRP seats for sale, they are black, wide, standard race models. And I am selling them each with a set of 5 point harnesses. Less than 1 year old maybe 10 hours use, belts still in tech. I am asking $400 for everything.
