Ryan: This Corbeau XRS Suspension Seat in Black Vinyl and Cloth is for those of you that have a 1987 all the way up through the 2018 YJ, TJ or JK that are looking for a very high-quality suspension seat that's gonna be very comfortable on-road and also off-road. We're gonna give this a two out of three wrenches for the installation. It is a pretty simple bolt-on for a TJ or for a JK.You are going to need a set of additional brackets to get this installed, but we will show you how to get this installed in just a second. So, when you're shopping for seats, you're really going to be shopping because your seats are either in really bad condition, you want to upgrade and replace and give yourself something that's not all torn and worn out or you're looking for some additional functionality out of your seat that your factory seat just isn't going to give you.So, of course, if you have a factory seat you just wanna refresh the look, you could recover it, you could add seat covers, you could do a lot of different things to it. But replacing it like this is going to give you not only a new look and new material over the outside of the seat, but again, it's going to give you a whole new seat, all the foam, all the padding, everything is gonna be brand new and in this case, you're going to get some additional functionality.And what do I mean by that? Well, the Corbeau is gonna offer a couple of different seats all the way from some that are less expensive and a little bit simpler all the way up to something like this, which is going to be one of the more expensive models that you can get. And the reason that this is pricier is those features that we mentioned. So, a lot of aftermarket seats will either be a reclining seat or they won't be. And in general, the reclining are gonna be more expensive and this is going to be a reclining seat so it's not a fixed backseat. So, right there that adds a little bit of cost but also some pretty nice functionality.This is also going to have a lot of bolstering to it. So, you have the bottom bolsters, the side and also the shoulder bolsters. So, whether you're on-road or off-road, the seat is really gonna hug you. It's gonna make you feel really secure where you're sitting. This is also going to have a couple of cutouts right here for a five-point harness, so if you do have a harness bar and you have harnesses, this seat is going to work really well in conjunction with those just to add a little bit of additional security.And one of the big things that this seat has is right in the title. This is a suspension seat, so if you were to flip this over, instead of seeing the metal springs of a traditional car seat, you are going to see elastic bands in the bottom of the seat, which means it's going to have a lot more give. So, whether you're doing low-speed off-roading, high-speed off-roading or just driving on the street, this is going to be very, very comfortable. It's gonna give you some really nice bounce, really great support, but also be really soft and really comfortable for you.So, a lot of features built right into the seat that I like. On top of that, you're gonna get Corbeau quality. This thing is not gonna start coming apart at the seams on you, the material is really high-quality as well. I personally like the look of the cloth center with the vinyl outside, but that's completely up to you, of course, your preference on looks. I think it's a pretty good looking seat. I really like all of the features and the build quality and the quality of the materials is definitely there.Now, for all of that, you are gonna pay a little bit more than some of the other seats on the market. This one coming in at right around that $760 mark for a pair of these seats. I still don't think that's crazy. Anytime you're in the vehicle, you're in the seat, the seat takes a lot of beating every time you get in and out, sliding across it. So, you might as well spend the money on something that you're really going to notice, you're really gonna feel every time you drive your vehicle, you're gonna see every time you look in your vehicle, and that is going to be a seat.So, for the quality, I do think the price is right in line with it. As we mentioned before, this is gonna be a two out of three wrenches for the install. Let's show you how to do it.Man: Tools required for this install: 3/8 drive with an extension, 18 and 16-millimeter socket, a T40 Torx bit, and a six-millimeter socket. To remove your factory wiring harness underneath your seats, a push pin removal tool or flat-head. Optional is an impact. And I use zip ties to tie my wiring harness underneath my seat and use a side cutter.All right. So the first step into getting your Jeep JK front seat out is to, of course, disconnect the electrical connection underneath. Here's your electrical connector underneath the seat. As you can see, there are some Christmas tree clips right there, so you may have to pry it off the bottom of the seat, but we're just going to release the top here and pull at the same time. Now, we're gonna bring the seat forward a little bit to expose this torque bolt right here, and we're going to remove it and just put our seat belt off to the side.All right. With the seat pushed all the way back, we're gonna take an 18-millimeter socket and remove the two front bolts. Now, we can bring the seat forward and get the rear bolts. All right. Now, we're going to remove the rear bolts. All right. So, the easiest way to get the seat out is to bring the seat back forward and then get the headrest up and out of here. That way you get a little extra clearance. And just pick up the front and back, rotate, and it's out. All right. So, now that we have our driver's seat out, we're gonna do the same exact steps on the passenger side.Our plug is a little bit different looking. We have a red latch here, so we're just gonna unlock that and remove the connector. Got my T40 here. So, there are a few pieces we have to take off of our factory seat before we can get our aftermarket seat in. So, here's that push pin right here. I'm just going to press it with both fingers here and then take it out just like that. Do the same thing for this weight switch here, this is for your airbag. This is a push pin right here, Christmas tree type as well. A Christmas tree type clip there and one here. Then there is a little tab here, we're just gonna press and pull at the same time. Get that Christmas tree clip out as well.All right. Now, we can get our seat belt off and transfer it over to our seat. So, as you can see, I pulled my electrical connector through. Now, I'm going to remove this 16-millimeter bolt holding the buckle portion of our seat belt in and just slide that through. So, we're gonna pair our Corbeau seat up with a Corbeau seat bracket for our JK. I'm gonna flip this upside down and use the supplied Allen key six-millimeter hardware. I'm gonna go ahead and tighten that down with my impact.Then I'll move the seat forward, then get the rear in. So, now we're gonna put our buckle in place and reuse our factory 16-millimeter hardware. These seat brackets are already threated, so this is a really simple swap and install. So, now I'm gonna bring the wiring harness back into place here, connect my seat belt buckle switch here. Then I'm gonna take some zip ties and zip tie my wiring harness to the bottom of the seat just to keep it out of any of the moving parts and out of the way.So, now that we moved all of those parts over, we're ready to install it on the driver's side. You wanna repeat all those steps for the passenger side seat to get that one ready as well. All right. So, before we can bolt our seat down, what we're gonna do is attach our seat belt to this bracket here. Start my threads, finish it off with my impact. So, we're also going to make our electrical connection for our seat.All right. Now, we're going to position our seat bracket over our bolt holes and just start a couple of threads on the front here and then do the same thing on the rear. We don't wanna tighten these down just yet. So, now that we've got all of our bolts started for our seat bracket, let's tighten these up with our impact. All right. So, that's going to wrap up the install of the driver's side. Now, repeat all those steps to get the passenger's side installed as well.So, that's gonna wrap up my install of the Corbeau Baja XRS Suspension Seat for your Wrangler. And for all things Jeep, keep it here at extremeterrain.com.

Comfort Means Safety. Suspended in a web of flexible cords and tucked into an immensely comfy seat, you and your passenger can take rugged terrain in stride with the Black Vinyl/Cloth Baja XRS Suspension Seat by Corbeau. Adjust your inclination for the most comfortable driving position. Ultimate comfort equals ultimate safety because you are 100% focused on the challenging job ahead of you.
Serious Technology for Serious Off-Roaders. Most suspension seats are carved out of a single piece of foam, which softens with wear and offers less and less support over time. The Corbeau Baja RS Suspension Seat is constructed from high-grade injection-molded foam, which retains its shape to comfort you for years to come. Combined with up-to-the-minute suspension technology, the Corbeau XLS Suspension Seat offers the ultimate off-road ride.
Upgrades Available. It almost doesn't seem possible, but you can improve your off-road experience of the Corbeau XLS Suspension Seat by adding anti-submarine slots for both driver and passenger, heated seats, seat savers, and inflatable lumbar support.
Installation. You need to know your way around an intermediate-level garage to install these babies. Ask a more mechanically inclined friend to help you, if necessary. Using a #30 torque wrench, safety glasses, and a 13mm hex socket head, plan on the job taking up to two hours.
Warranty. The Corbeau XLS Suspension Seats are covered by the manufacturer against defects in materials and workmanship for one year from the purchase date.
Application. The Corbeau Baja XRS Suspension Seats fit all models of 1987-2018 Wrangler YJ, TJ, JK.

These seats are VERY comfortable! My factory seats were shot and needed to be replaced badly. I tried 2 other seats before landing on these, and they are definitely a keeper! The memory foam working with the suspension part of the seat is just great! The side bolsters keep you in place and the thigh bolsters aren't so large that they make it difficult to get in and out of the Jeep. A prior seat (Baja JP) was much more difficult to get in and out of due to its bolsters. The install wasn't bad, I just had to fiddle with the bracket a bit to get all the holes to line up. I used Corbeau's brackets that allowed me to attach the seat to the factory sliders. I needed to keep the fold and tumble option for my back seat passengers. I had to get ALL the bolts in very loosely and then tighten them all down in the end. I tried to attach the bracket to the seat first, but doing this distorted the bracket just enough that the other holes wouldn't quite line up. If this happens to you as well, it would be easier if you had a low profile allen key. There are a few things that prospective TJ/LJ owners need to be aware of: 1- You will sit up about 2 inches higher if you use the Corbeau brackets that attach to the factory sliders. This was a good thing for me because I'm all of 5'6" tall. 2- The fit is very tight! If you are taller, you will have issues with both the side bolsters and reclining mechanism hitting the rollbar. Again, I do not have this issue due to my height. You can, however, muscle it back there a bit as long as you won't be using the fold and tumble feature often. I had the Baja JP prior to this seat, and it was even tighter of a fit FYI. I would HIGHLY recommend these seats as replacements for your worn out factory seats or if you just want a better seat!Helpful (3)

Very nice seats
I like the high bolsters fits my frame 6' 195lbs. If you are wider might be tight. I got the cloth/vinyl if I had thought of it I would have stayed with full vinyl. Cloth is nice but hard to keep clean. I gave them 3 stars due to the cost. They are expensive then you have to spend another $200 for the seat brackets.Helpful (2)
