    No experience with the ones listed but I love my Mastercraft Baja RS's with heat if your open to other options too

    They just keep getting more comfy the more miles I put in them

    Heated seats are always nice. Even if it's cool out, but otherwise nice, they take the chill off (think of fall with no doors on a nice clear day).

    I have been seated in Corbeau Baja RS seats, and my ass liked them.

    Price out shipping too, once you get to the point of pulling the trigger on seats. Your head might explode when you see shipping costs.

    Only advice I have is to try to see if anyone local has those seats - they may be great for me, but everyone has a different body shape, and it may not work for you. Tough to do, I know, but it's a common theme in every "which suspension seat for me" thread I've seen.

    I personally have the Beard fixed backs in my YJ. Hands down the best purchase I ever made.

    Wow Pro car stepped up to the off road plate. I know they have been making seats for the budget minded for years but that is the first I've seen of the suspension style.

    Any comments on fixed back vs. reclining? Worth the extra $100-$150 to get reclining?

    99.999998% of the time I'm the only one who drives my Jeep and it's a DD.

    I would have preferred the reclining function however my cage setup made it un-usable so it was a no brainer to just save the money and go fixed back.

    Re: Suspension Seat Reccomendations

    Think about it from this point of view. Unless the manufacturer found just the right back angle for your body you are going to wish you got reclining.

    I know I lean the seat back a couple of clicks more then most people on my jeep. If i don't my back starts screaming after an hour or so.

    I bought (through CT Motorsports) PRP Premier High Backs with 4" extra height in last year and I absolutely love them. What I liked about the PRP's is you can order pretty much whatever you want; 4" extra height, 1" wider, custom fabric and fabric combo = no problem. I looked at Corbeau, Mastercraft, and Twisted Stitch before landing on the PRP's. I had opportunity to sit in all of them before purchasing while down at the KOH.

    Reclining seats were not an option for me, but in a DD I would think they are a must. When fitting seats be sure to make sure they are tall enough for you. I have seen so many people with seats that are way too short; harness 4" below shoulder and headrest mid-neck.

    Suspension Seat Reccomendations

    I've had a few issues with the high back corbeaus.
    A customers truck got the lowback with headrest. Very comfy and seems better constructed than my high backs
