      Function. You'll find plenty of seats that will adequately replace the factory style design, but only the Rugged Ridge XHD reclining front seat comes with a patent pending design that showcases the first true upgrade to seating in the last 30 years. This seat eliminates the need for an add-on bracket to install it in your TJ. Rugged Ridge combines this new design with new components to bring you the most durable seat you'll find on the market. While it may look a lot like previous designs, don't be fooled.

      Properties. This XHD seat features a sleek, sporty racing design and can handle the toughest of off-road conditions. You'll love the special seatbelt harness cutout that allows you to use your existing seatbelt without having to relocate it. The integrated headrest is fully adjustable and offers maximum comfort. Rugged Ridge upgraded the side bolsters, and they go a long way towards providing optimal comfort. This seat is manufactured with durable, automotive grade textured vinyl, and features an infinite number of ways to recline.

      Options & Accessories. An adjuster lever (J14773) is required to use the fold and tumble feature.

      Application. This seat fits 1997 - 2006 TJ Wranglers.

        Rugged Ridge XHD Front Seat

        If you don't mind having to do some modifications to make this seat fit correctly, It can work, but otherwise I wouldn't waste money on this product. I had to cut the through shaft for the reclining knobs and eliminate the use of the internal knob in order for the seats to fit. Cutting that shaft voided any opportunity to return the product. I also had to modify the seat belt receiver. While Rugged Ridge claims that it doesn't have to be removed in the installation of the seat, it certainly needs to be reshaped in order to fit accurately. Also, I ordered the tumble kit to make the passenger tumble seat work but it was for years 2003 through 2006 and couldn't be used on my 1997 TJ. So, I no longer have the tumble feature for that seat. At least I can return this kit. Turning a knob to recline the seat is not my idea of and efficiently designed product. Very cumbersome to recline! I'm not entirely certain I like the seat for comfort. It is very narrow. Just not sure the comfort will be there. And, the seats are too new to really know how they will standup from a quality perspective. Also, the color is more of a tan than a gray so it doesn't match well with the gray interior. I'll make use of these seats for a couple years since I've already made the investment and through modification, ruined any chance of doing a return, but first chance I find something I prefer that might be closer to OEM, I'll be replacing these seats.
