1976 cj-5 Total junk seats installed by PO have got to go! Anyone have newer model year bolt in donor info for me? Older seats in local wrecking yards are shot. I see LOTS of nice seats in the newer cars, but WHAT WILL FIT? I plan to notch the wheel wells for more legroom if that matters. Some fab OK, but not sure where to start. My stock seat mounts are hacked up a bit. Anyone have the dimensions for the riser to seat bolt pattern? Appreciate your time!

There is a thread about this with a list of what works, did you try a search?

Hi!
Not strong with the computer thing, but I did search, but couldn't find famous "wiki" list. Other lists have older donor cars, mostly pre -2003. Sure, Cavalier seats fit, but not even produced in many years. Seats from cars that old are really poor overall. Also, most of the wrecking yards near me are "Self Serve". Older cars picked clean or thrashed. Nice newer seats are in yards that don't allow access due to Insurance issues. Ya gotta tell 'em exactly what you want. I want to crawl through their yard with a tape measure and find something really nice. Or if I knew, I'd tell them seats from a 2008 whatevermobile. I just don't know....
If anyone can help, sure would be appreciated.
