    Default Replacement seat options

    All,

    I did a search and did not find a thread specifically for options. This thread is to provide a single location for listing all the options people have tried.

    Can everyone post the seat they used to replace the stock seats.

    Please include:

    1. What vehicle make, model, and year you used.
    2. Pictures of the seat installed (if you have one).
    3. Pictures of the bracket adapter and/or a description of how it is mounted.
    4. How well you like them.
    5. Optionally a link to your build thread where you discuss your seats if someone wants more info.

    Hopefully people find this condensed list useful.

    Thanks!

    Due to the industry that in im going to put a set of PRP seats in my LMTV. It's a suspension seat that can also recline so it will be very comfortable.

    The seats I liked, and wished I could find were the suspension seats used in the lsac cabs, they looked military, but I could nap at lunch time in them they were so comfortable. I believe they were made by mastercraft if I remember right.

    Please post your details with the pictures so people and duplicate your designs without having to figure out the details.

    I'm actually running the A1-R seats. They were changed to a suspension seat design opposed to having a steel plate under your butt. They are quite comfortable and I honestly won't be changing a thing. But the OEM seats prior to these were rubbish and feel like brick as I'm sure you know.

    The images I posted above were just random grabs from the FB group. Not mine...
