      This Smittybilt Standard Front Bucket Seat in black vinyl is for those of you that have a1987 to 2006 Wrangler and are looking for a replacement front seat that is going to be less expensive than some of the others because it doesn't have quite as many features but is still a very high quality seat that looks good and is going to be comfortable. Now Smittybilt does have a factory-style reclining seat. They also have their Super Seat and some other higher end seats that are going to have additional features, they're going to be a suspension-style seat, some more bolstering, some spots for a five-point harness, different headrests, a lot of different features that all add to cost, but also the functionality of the seat. However, this is going to be one of Smittybilt's least expensive seats, it doesn't have a ton of those additional features, and if that's what you're looking for, I think this is going to be a really great choice. This seat has a tubular steel frame that is covered in a black powder coat finish to help it hold up really, really well, and this is going to be a metal spring seat with foam overtop of it. So it is going to be similar to that factory construction, but you're not going to have a reclining mechanism built into the seat. As it says right in the title, this is going to be a black vinyl seat. A lotta people like the vinyl in their Wranglers, especially if you have a soft top Wrangler, because it is so easy to clean. That's personally why I like having vinyl seats in my TJ. This again is going to be one of the more basic seats, but it is gonna be really comfortable, and if you have a torn, beat up, or otherwise worn out seat in your Wrangler, this is going to be a less expensive replacement option than some of the fancier seats that are available. For the install, I am going to give this a one out of three wrenches, it's probably going to take you around one hour per seat to get these involved, and you are going to have to purchase the Smittybilt seat adapters to get these bolted up. However, when you have those adapters, this is going to be a pretty simple and straightforward bolt-in installation that's only going to require a socket set to get it done. Now the first step is of course going to be removing your factory seats and your factory seat brackets out of your Jeep, then you can bolt your Smittybilt seat adapters onto your new seats, and finally bolt the seats with the adapters into your Wrangler. Again, a regular set of sockets is all you're gonna need to get this done in your driveway. I've said a couple of times now that this is one of Smittybilt's less expensive options because it doesn't have quite as many features built into it, and for that reason this does come in at right around $145. I think if you're looking to get a replacement set of seats, you're looking for something that's no-frills, this is going to be an excellent option for you. And if you have a higher budget and you want some additional features, you can still go with one of Smittybilt's many other seats. However, of course you are gonna have to be prepared to spend a little bit more. So if you're looking for a basic and inexpensive replacement front seat for your YJ or TJ, I think this is a really nice offering from Smittybilt, and you can find it right here at

        Don’t buy this

        Warning the actual product is NOT AS PICTURED. Actual seat is flat back/seat 90 degree angle, no head rest and doesn’t adjust / recline. Also the adapters / seat / do not line up correct with car and even after adapting they don’t fit right

        Front bucket seats replacements.

        The Smittybilt front bucket seats installed very easy for me cause I removed the whole seats, removed the old and installed the new with no problem. They look good and now I am watching to see if it would hold as per sturdy construction.

        great quality and comfortable

        the item is great. comfortable and look awesome. they should offer replacement tapered torque screws to help align holes when installing. old seat brackets become torqued making aligning new nuts difficult.
