    Default New Seats

    Anyone ever changed out their stock TJ seats? Went wheeling with the wife and when we got home she ask me about changing out my seats for better off-road seats. I looked into it and seats are like $200 to $500 each seat! Is it worth it? Do they soften the ride? And what about 3 point vs 5 point seat belts? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    if you get something that is going to allow more than just your spine to compress it will be a more enjoyable ride. as far as difference between 5 and 3 point belts well the 5 point is what most professionals use in there rides, not supposed to let you move at all in any direction to include sliding through the bottom the harness. there are actually 2 types of 3 point belts. the standard vehicle seat belt and then the 3 point harness. the 3 point harness has to side points like normal but it also has the dual sholder straps to keep you snug against the back of the seat. some will find them not as comfortable because they will V up in the back to attatch to one point on a cross bar as to were the 5 point will have independent attatchment points for the sholders.
