Ryan: The Corbeau Baja XRS suspension seat in black vinyl is for those of you that have a 1987 all the way up through the most current model year Wrangler that are looking for a very high quality and very comfortable off-road suspension seat. Of course, this seat's also going to be very comfortable on road but the suspension part of this seat does make it very comfortable when you're bouncing around off-road. And we'll talk a little bit more about that in just a second. This is gonna be a seat that installs into your Jeep very easily. I'm gonna give it a one out of three wrenches. Now, there is the possibility that you're going to need a bracket in order to get this installed, so do make sure that you pick that up to make the installation as easy as possible. But we will talk a little bit more about that installation in just a second. So there are gonna be a bunch of different aftermarket seats available for your vehicle. Some are going to be a factory style replacement seat, some are going to have even fewer features, be even simpler and less expensive, and others are going to have more features and be a little bit pricier, and that's where this seat is going to fall in. This has some really great bolstering, it has the cutouts for the five-point harnesses. This is going to be a reclining aftermarket seat. But again, the most important thing about this seat is that it is a suspension seat, so this is not going to have any of the metal spring frame on the underside of it that your typical seat does. This has elastic suspension chords across the bottom, making it very, very comfortable when you're in an off-road situation. Now, you couple that with the fact that this is a Corbeau seat, it has a long lineage, it has a great name behind it. They make some very high quality stuff but you're also gonna pay a premium price. This is going to run you right around $750 for a pair of these front seats. If you are looking for something that's very high quality, very comfortable, has some great features, I do think $750 is a pretty fair price to pay. If you're looking for something significantly less expensive, you're going to get a lower build quality, lower material quality and less features.So some of the things you're gonna see when you're purchasing an aftermarket seat are whether or not the seat reclines, whether or not it has an adjustable headrest. Some of them have cutouts for five-point harnesses and some don't. Some seats are going to have additional bolstering along the side and the bottom of the seat. Again, some of them are not. And then, of course, you're going to find seats that are suspension seats like this one, and then some that are going to be a metal spring seat. So this has some really great bolstering, it's gonna do a great job of holding you in place. Does not have an adjustable headrest but that's pretty typical for a sportier style of seat, and the seat that does have the cutouts for the five-point harnesses is just not gonna have the space for the adjustable headrest. If you do have a set of five-points, these are going to be very useful for you. If you don't have a set of five-point harnesses, some people will still like the look of the cut-out, some people don't. That's gonna be completely up to you. Again, this is a reclining seat. That's gonna be a really nice feature. Some are fixed back. I personally don't like that. You're not gonna be lying down in the seat but you do want to get it at a comfortable angle for you, and that's going to be different from person to person. And then, of course, I've said it a couple times now, this is a suspension seat. That makes it incredibly comfortable when you're off-road. You're not going to be bottoming out, you're not going to be sitting on metal springs. This is going to be an elastic webbing underneath this injection molded foam that makes this very, very comfortable over very long periods of time and on some very rough roads. Now a member of the install team will show you how to use these. Male: The tools used for this installation are as follows: a ratchet, a small pry tool, a six-millimeter Allen key, an 18-millimeter, a 16-millimeter, and a T45 socket. Now we're gonna begin our uninstall by removing our stock seat using an 18-millimeter socket on our ratchet. We're just gonna go ahead and remove the front two bolts and the rear two bolts. After that, I'm gonna flip the seat up so you guys can get a better view of the plug underneath. Once we get that unplugged, go ahead and pull the seat out, then we'll put our new bracket on the bottom of our Corbeau seat and get it installed in our Jeep. Now, to install our Corbeau seats we're gonna be using a Corbeau bracket that bolted down to the floor because we're not gonna be able to use our stock floor bracket. Now let's go ahead and get started. So with our 18-millimeter socket on our ratchet and your seat all the way back, we're gonna go ahead and remove the front two bolts. After that, we'll slide our seat all the way forward to remove the rear two, and then unplug the one plug underneath, pull our seat out.Now let's go ahead and get our rear bolts removed. You're gonna use the same 18-millimeter socket that we used on our front two bolts. Now I'm gonna do my best to show you how to get all these out. A little tight in there but we're gonna do the best we can. All right, now we do have one last bolt. It is the one bolt that attaches our seat belt to the side of our seat. Now using a T45 Torx bit we're gonna go ahead and get this removed. All right, now, before we just go and pull our seat out, we do have to unplug our one sensor plug underneath our seats, so we're just gonna go ahead, tilt it back, come right here, unplug that. Now we're ready to go ahead and get our seat out. To do so, I'm just gonna go ahead and tilt it outwards towards the end of the Jeep and just slide it right out. Well, here you can see our factory seat next to our new Corbeau seat, and well, factory seat's a little beat up, the bolsters are a little crushed down. I'd say this is definitely in need of replacement or repair. Our decision? We're gonna go ahead and replace it. Now, with our new Corbeau seat, and you could see the bolsters are a lot higher. That is great when off-roading, they're going to keep you locked into place. Only difference is we don't have a bracket on the bottom of our seats, so we're gonna go ahead and get this factory seat out of the way. But before we do that, we're going to go ahead and take our seat belt off of it. We're gonna install our bracket onto our new seat. The seat bracket does come with the provisions to run our stock seat belt system so we're gonna go ahead and get that installed. Now with the use of a 16-millimeter socket, we're gonna go ahead and pull up the side of our seat a little bit to gain access to the bolt. Go ahead and break that loose and just get it removed. We do have to unplug the harness that is the sensor for our seat belt. This sensor tells your computer that you're wearing your seat belt and then you won't get that little chiming noise anymore, then we'll be good to go. All right. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna go ahead and disconnect all of our sensors from the bottom of our seat because we are gonna need this sensor here that leads up to our seat belt latch. Now, unfortunately, these other sensors are all intertwined. We don't need those on our new seat but we are gonna need the rest of the harness so we could plug this in. Now, with the use of a small pry tool, we're gonna go ahead and pop loose all of our little plastic grommets that hold our harness to the bottom of our seat. All right. Now that we have everything that we need to install our new seat, let's go ahead and get our new seat together. Now I'm gonna go ahead and grab the bracket that we need to bolt to the bottom of our new Corbeau seat. Now, this bracket does not come with your seat, it is purchased separately. But you're definitely going to need it to run a new seat. All right. We have our bracket here on the table, and to begin, I'm gonna go ahead and get my seat belt latch attached to the side of it, then we're gonna go ahead and bolt up our new seat to the bottom of our bracket. Now, to get this attached, you just use your original hardware, line up the holes.All right. Now we are ready to get our bracket attached to the bottom of our seat. Now, to do so, you're gonna need a six-millimeter Allen wrench. Now, I have my T-handle Allen key here. Any old Allen key that you have that is a six-millimeter will work just fine. We're gonna go ahead and remove the four bolts that are installed on the bottom of our seat and then we're gonna use that hardware to attach it to our bracket. All right. Now that all the bolts are out of the bottom of our seat, let's go ahead and get our bracket attached. Now, we're gonna have to go ahead and move our sliders a little bit to get these attached. So what we're gonna do is just go ahead, unlock it, slide them all the way back. We can go ahead and get our back ones installed first, then we'll slide the bracket all the way forward and we'll get our forwards ones installed. All right. Now, before we throw our seat in the Jeep, we're gonna have to go ahead and get our harness plugged back in. So let's go ahead, get our harness all together, lock down. There we go. All right. Now let's go ahead and get our new Corbeau seat installed. All right. Now we got our seat sat up in there, we're gonna go ahead and get it bolted down now and just use your original hardware that came out, your two 18-millimeters up front, your two out back. Then we're gonna go ahead and get our seat belt attached to our side. Now, before we make our way to the back bolts, let's go ahead and just get our plug plugged in. And we're gonna go ahead, slide our seat forwards and then we'll get our two back bolts installed. All right. Now let's go ahead and get our rear hardware in. It's gonna seem a little tight but that's okay, you want your brackets to be nice and snug to the floor. So with a little bit of finagling, we can go ahead and get our bolts in. And our last piece of hardware is to go ahead and get our seat belt reattached to our new side bracket. Get your seat belt, slide it in to the tab. Using your original hardware, we're gonna go ahead and get this locked down.That concludes the install of our new Corbeau seat inside of our JK Jeep Wrangler. Now you'll notice we only did the driver side. All that's because the passenger side is the exact same steps that we just did. So if you do opt for changing both front seats, just continue along with all the steps that we just did. Now get out there on the trails and have some fun, and for more parts and videos like these, make sure you visit us at extremeterrain.com.

An Absolute Necessity. Suspended in a web of bungee-like cords with the Black Vinyl Corbeau Baja XRS Suspension Seat, both driver and passengers are disconnected from the g-forces typical of 4x4 off-road motoring. Apart from being at least an order of magnitude more comfortable, suspension seat technology is also safer because the driver can focus 100% on maneuvering the vehicle and 0% on worrying about falling off their perch. For serious off-road users, this is less of a luxury than it is a necessity. The integrated head and neck rest provides additional comfort and security.
Classical Style Meets Suspension Technology. The simple, elegant lines of the Corbeau Baja XRS Suspension Seat combine perfectly with the space-age automotive technology that lies beneath. Suspension seats are typically carved out of foam, which eventually goes soft and provides diminished support. Here, injection-molded foam is paired with suspension seat engineering for unparalleled comfort and support that will last and last.
Available Upgrades. You can extend your comfort even further by adding heated seats, anti-submarine slots and/or seat savers.
Installation Difficulty. You're going to need your wits about you for this install and perhaps get some help from an individual with an intermediate level of mechanical skill. You will need a 13mm hex socket head, #30 torque wrench, and safety glasses. The job should take no more than two hours.
Tech Note. In the Jeep Wrangler TJ the reclining mech hits the roll bar when trying to slide the seat back all the way. In other words if you like the slide your seat all the way back, you're going to lose about an inch or two of slide. For most people this is not a issue but if you're taller you'll want to consider this in the Jeep Wrangler TJ.
Warranty. Corbeau warrants its Baja XRS Suspension Seat against defects in materials and workmanship for one year from the date of purchase.
Application. This pair of Corbeau Baja XRS Suspension Seats fit all 1966-2021 Jeep CJ and Wrangler models.
