Yesterday I had my front seats swapped by Recaro seats, incl. custom upholstery with extra horizontal stitching to match the rear bench and grey contour stitching.
They add more than 5 inch more space for the rear passangers.

Look great. What model are they?
How does the short drives feel and please report back after the first 100 or more mile ride.

What is your height? Estimated cost? You install yourself?

Look great! Definitely better off road, I would like to know how the long road feels.

CS Cross Sportster.
The back supports better, expecially in corners, the bottom is firmer/harder...
I'm 183 cm and the seat are installed without spacers, so as low as can be.
I had my oem's reclined. Now this is not possible. I think I will raise the front for about 1/2"..

Better sight through the rear windows with those narrow headrest. For sure.

Price installed in Belgium: + 6000 €... incl. side airbags

I have friends who have the same seats in their sports cars. Great seats. The air bag option really jacks the price up. Ever look at the Bride seats?

Is that a custom steering wheel or a carbon wrap on the original?

Agreed. I like the idea of more room in the back, but the people back there can pay it if they want it. :)

does the airbag tie into the Jeep's CAN bus? or does it have its own sensors?
