Gents -

My 78'cj5 is of need of some seats. I currently only have one and it's seen better days.

Has anyone here replaced their seats with junk yard replacements? I've read that S10, Blazers, mitsubishi eclipse and late 90's/early 2000s jetta(s) seats will fit with no issues. Was hoping for some feedback from the horse's mouth and jeep lovers.

Thanks

Chris

When I first got my Jeep CJ5 it had early 80's camaro seats that were a direct bolt on. I also put in plymouth laser seat but I had to cut out a square piece of thick sheet metal for a mount since the laser mounts were a little wider by an inch or so. They were the most comfortable seat I ever had in the Jeep.
