Those seats and that console are in my sights too.
I really want to sit in one of them before I actually buy them... probably gonna be tough to find. I'm old and not as narrow as I use to be. I would hate to buy them and them to be to narrow in the seat or the back. Some sites say up to 40 and others say 42 waist. If that is true... I should be ok.

I am def not small and still find mine very comfortable. If they were 2" wider I'd be more comfortable, but the side bolsters are still good. I have Beard Ultra SS seats that were recovered by PRP for KOH

built, not bought
sweet ride! Ive always had a interest in the B2 chassis. Dad breifly had a early one with a 2.8 , love that the wheel wells are stock and not hacked & fitted with rubber flares. Looks really clean, cant tell its bedliner paint in the picture.

We sold and installed several sets of Beard Super Seats back in my buggy building days. Loved them.

The side bolsters were to high to use in the Bronco though... I need to slide in... slide out. The Beard seats we used were kinda drop in... lift out. We also did some Scat Pro Car seats and I've looked around a bit here recently. I think these Corbeau seats are the ones as long as I fit. Price is pretty decent comparatively too.

I only wish it looked as good in person... the bed liner paint job is a total wreck.

Have you looked at the PRP enduro line? They're not as big on the side bolster- made to get in and out through a door rather than sliding through a cage. The corbeau moab is the same IIRC

Those are nice seats too. Trouble is they're twice the price.

@Uncle Gump call a body shop and see what, if anything, can be done about the bed liner. Call me buts, but I'd put some gas on a rag and see if that removes it. I don;t think Ido the whole think that way, but it could give me some idea about possibilities. Try 80 nfitr sandpaper. Call a body shop before you do anything. It is possible. Question is, how patient are you?

A bedliner place might have tricks for removing bedliner too.

I think more then completely stripping it down complete... I'm probably going to try and smooth out the really bad areas and just put and new coat over top. I bookmarked Duraback and will take a closer look at their offering. I think I'm going to just get it rolling down the road and make a clean up and recoat a winter project after I get moved back to Michigan and get a nice shop set up.
