    Thanks gents. I really like the way they look. I think they need to break in a bit because I wouldn't quite call them comfortable just yet. But the Tweed fabric is pretty tight and stiff so I think they should break in a bit. The angle and height of the seat are awesome though and something that was of concern when buying the fixed back seats

    Well I do need to update 1 thing on this
    I don't think that occupancy sensor is picking up any weight. I had my wife take off her seat belt while driving and it never registered or dinged at us so it knows it's plugged in but it's not picking up the weight by being all the way in the bottom of the seat

    Getting in really isn't any difference. Getting out is definitely more noticeable. I'm only 5'9" and I can't step over the bolster and reach the ground so I put some weight on the side of the seat and my handle on the roll bar to get out. It's not "hard" but not really like stock at all. I am glad I didn't go with seats that have any more bolster though these are plenty

    Gotcha. Same for me at being 5'9". I have been in and out of the PRP Enduro Elites that Bubba has in his War Pig and they were comfy and easy in and out. Just seen how the sides were in those I was curious. If I did eventually go with a harness bar I'm not sure if you can recline or not.

    I think the bolster on these are a good middle ground of support and not to much of a pain to get in and out. Not super comfy as of yet I just feel like I'm sitting on a hammock of tight fabric rather than on a cushion so I hope these break in a bit or I may be making another change later on down the road.
    The plan is to go harness bar and a 4 point but these are fixed back seats so I can't recline anyways so I'm not losing anything with the harness bar.

    So I have been very frustrated with the way my Jeep steers for a while now. I feel like I have a 2-3" dead spot in my steering wheel and it's a bear to drive. I swear I have done everything right in regards to steering components / geometry and I kinda thought the only way to get rid of it was to go hydro assist. Well tonight just to idiot check myself I had the wife turn the wheel back and forth so I could check the likely culprits and found this.....

    This is an Exodus DL that I installed only a few months ago and it has maybe 500 miles on it if that. Being that the pitman arm needed to be reamed quite a bit to make it fit I can only imagine I Fucked it up some how making it THAT loose. Looks like I'm gonna have to pull it off and figure out what's going on there :/

    Bubba can I just ship you my pitman arm?!?!? Haha

    Yeah other than what a pain in the ass it is to pull the pitman arm, and I borrowed the reamer, and getting a new TRE if it's toast..... Good thing it's not my DD haha

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
