    Hi. I'm looking for front seats for my 79' CJ5. I'm looking for low back fixed seats. I'm located in Cedar Rapids, IA. Thanks.

    Check out the Bestop and Smittybuilt replacement seats. I have used both and they are pretty good seats for the money.

    I have used both as well. I do the mid height ones from Smittybuilt in my last flattie. You can still see over the head rest when you turn your head but still gives a little support. The Bestop are a bit thinner, but gives room for the man muscle. Ride is not as good with the Bestop IMHO. The original seats are designed as part of the total suspension system. When they get old, they don't work as well, as my butt will attest.

    I have a pair of low backs from a 79, not sure if they are "fixed". They aren't pretty, upholstery is no good. If you go aftermarket maybe you will just need the brackets to match the 79 floor?

    Low-Back Smittybilts have been great in my '57.
    Comfortable, look near original, and not expensive.
    Thick butt cushion, so they need to be mounted as low as possible.
