How-to Install Moab Seat-Pair YJ, TJ, JK 2017 Jeep Wrangler Corbeau
When shopping for a seat, one of the biggest differentiating factors is whether it has a fixed back or a reclining back. This does have a reclining back on both the passenger and the driver side seat. Another thing to take a look at is whether these are bolt in or you need an adapter bracket and as I mentioned, for your T js and your J ks, you will need the adapter bracket for these seats. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of these seats, which is going to be a very simple one out of three wrench installation. These are gonna bolt directly in place of your factory seats, although with your TJ and your JK, you are going to need an adapter bracket. But when you do have that bracket, it's still a very easy bolt in install and it shouldn't take you more than an hour to complete. But we'll talk more about that installation in just a second. Now Corbeau does offer a couple of different seats.
They have the Corbeau sport, which is very much a factory looking seat without any sort of cut out or an additional harness. These are, of course, the moabs, which are gonna be one step up, still very factory looking and feeling, but with that cut out, and these do have the Corbeau logo on the front side where the sport seats do not. Then you can step up to the Baja RS seats, which are going to have some additional bolstering. And finally the Baja XRS seats, those are really going to be the most aggressive and most aftermarket looking seats.
They're gonna have a ton of bolstering on the bottom and on the side. They're gonna hold you really well when you're driving on the street, and when you're in those off camber situations off-road. And those seats are also going to accept a 3, 4 or 5 point harness if you have a harness bar and a cage that supports that. So those are gonna be the different choices that you have from Corbeau and how these seats are set apart a little bit from some of the other seats that are on the market. Now, in general, Corbeau does make a very high quality seat. They've been around for a long time, and their seats are going to be a little bit pricier than some of the others on the market, especially when you consider, for this set of seats in your TJ or your JK, you have to buy two adapter brackets that are a little over $ 100 eachyou are gonna have some money into your seats.
However, every time you get in the vehicle you're gonna sit in the seat, you're gonna be using that seat. The seats do take a lot of a beating when you're sliding in and out of that driver or passenger seat, you're bouncing around, you wanna be comfortable, you're taking long road trips. In my opinion, if you're going to be spending some money on the interior of your vehicle seats are a good place to do it, so these seats, all of a sudden, become worth the cost. From a construction standpoint, these are gonna have a tubular steel frame. These are going to have steel springs in the bottom of them, of course, foam over top of that, and then a choice of a couple different types of material.
These are available with neoprene, with some cloth, with vinyl, of course, as you see here and then, as I said, in a bunch of different colors. Each one of those is going to have the cut out here for a shoulder harness if your jeep does have a shoulder harness on it. Of course, it does have a spring loaded very easy to use recline. This does have a map pocket on the back of it, which is convenient for a little bit of additional storage, and overall it's just going to be a very well-built, very firm feeling seat. Getting these installed is a very easy one out of three wrench installation that shouldn't take you more than an hour with just some hand tools. Now, if you're installing this in your TJ or your JK, as I said before, you are going to have to purchase those adapters separately, and the first step in the install is going to be flipping the seat upside down and attaching the adapter to the bottom of the seat. From there, you can remove your factory seats out of your jeep and go ahead and bolt those adapters down in the factory locations with the factory hardware.
Very easy install anybody can do in their driveway. A pair of these seats, as you see them here, are right around $ 600. Again, if you need those adapters, they're a little over $ 100 each, so you are gonna have some money wrapped up in your seats. But as I mentioned before, in my opinion, if you're spending money on the interior the seats are the place to do it. So if you're looking for an aftermarket seat to put in your jeep to change up the look of the interior, because your factory seats are beat up, or because you're looking for a seat that has a cut out for a shoulder harness, I think these are going to be a really nice option for you. These are going to be a little bit more expensive than some of the others, especially by the time you buy those adapters if you need them for your jeep. But in the end, you are getting a high-quality seat that's going to look good and hold up for a long time.
