Those seats look like cruel and unusual punishment...I wonder how comfortable they are.

Also, I'm trying to figure out the hinge-point on the rack; do the sides open up and away to access the bed from the side?

Not sure of the black one.
But the red one is a stock fender with their lights minimal cutting..the grey blue is a complete frendwr swap and it sits higher than the Rubicon stock fender
Found this info from YouTube wayof life video on Bestop

I also wonder about the seats. Would love to read a report on the seats comfort or torture. They look cool.

I like the doors on these with the armrest. There was one other company doing a front armrest, can't remember who. I wanted to try them out and the seats, but this was in an unattended area and the doors were ziptied shut... defeating the purpose of bringing new products to sema... You gotta let people play with the new products. This isn't a custom built show car, it is a jeep meant to bring attention to its products.
