Yeah, well sorta.

Take a look at my seat swap thread:

http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/15-general-discussion-bronco-wheeling-related/72276-f-250-seat-swap.html

Just get the center section and seat belt receptacles out of a junker.

I want to find a cheap seat that will help keep you in the rig in off camber spots. While my eddie bauer seats are comfy, they do not provide much support off road. I like the celica seats with the side bolsters. Anyone else have some junkyard gold that has more side support that the ford stuff?

I got mine from a '95 GT 'stang.


Covered them with Cover King seat covers(bought from Checker. $200 for both).

Cover King makes them for the bko buckets, w/armrest as well. They're the same price($200).

There rear bench is $200 as well. I havent bought that yet though.

Adapted them to the stock sliders. I only had to drill 2 extra holes.



Summit sells a cheap sport seat: http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

I've seen them as low as $170 each. There was a vendor over at corral, who had was selling them @ $200 a pair, but that was a while ago.

summits seat is the same as the one i saw t kragen for 119. jegs has some nice seats for about 150 with some adjustability to them. Cant vouch for comfort, but they seem nice. id love the mastercraft baja's, but $$$$$$$. OTH, i need a mastercraft or similar bench for the rear, to integrate into the cage so the kid will be safe.

I used to have a 93 GT (anal)Probe and I loved the stock seats in that thing. They had the side bolsters, holes in the backs for harnesses or whatever. The side bolsters and lumbar were powered so you could make the seat REAL tight, you didn't move. I see a bunch in the yards, but I don't know if the GT ones were different.

I was actually looking at their center seat. Today I found that Summit sells it for $65. I'm not really interested in replacing the two buckets as they are in near-new condition. Plus, They will be replaced when I cage the truck and go to a race-style bucket.

Man I could not be happier with the seats I pulled out of the Jeep. They are very comfortable and have a deep bottom the the race seats don't. They get a gold star since I did that whole jump for your life thing and walked away alive and in no pain. With all that G force they are still as good as they were the day before and I have no plans to change them out. 1/2 day off sale at the local JY and I picked the pair up for $50.

Bronco is sold to another member but the memory will live on.
I still come here to keep up with wheeling buddies and check out their rides.

Just put in some 2001 Expedition seats in mine. I'll get some photo's next week. I don't have a welder, but am good with fabricating things. it was very easy and if you have a vice, hammer, some type of tourch to heat the metal, drill, and a tape measure you can do it.

The are more bucket like, have all the power adjustments, heated, leather, and are the EB mocha color that matches my EB. when i was up at Hell Whole last week, they were a huge improvement and kept my in my seat at off camber posistions.

I'll get pics next week.

Dan, i want to see those seats.

90beater, those look very comfy, but not what Im looking for

torvaid the seats in my 94 mazda "ranger" have the pull out leg supports, and have good side bolsters actually, but no arm rests which sucks.

Here are my stock seats in red tweed. Cost was about 600 for buckets and bench. I think they are great but sometime the dogs hair is hard to get out of the tweed.

My Bronco turned into a LandCruiser.

As much as i hate APC i picked up a set of their racing buckets when they came out last year or so IIRC. They have side bolsters and also should boulster and have the openings so you can run a 5 point harness.

THey are very comfy for the price. Only thing i don't like is the manual turn knob to adjsut the back and also the side bolster will break their supporting rods if you bend them back and fourth a couple times. SO i have to fix that on mine. But i can't complain for the price

you'd think the black wouldnt look good on the tan...but actually it looks pretty good to me
