For the trail rig - I love them. Easy to maintain, can withstand the elements, keeps your butt in the seat when really off camber... awesome.

But to be completely honest, I believe Suzuki designed the stock seat to be part of the suspension...

Ok, sounds strange. But this is how I see it. The zook has a very rough ride to begin with. When you replace the 'cushiony' stock seats with a sturdy piece of plastic and then cover it with a padded seat cover that really isn't so padded - the ride is even rougher. I have driven the zook with those seats for trails that were a couple of hours away, and I handled it well. But if you expect the less expensive (plastic) seats to be comfortable, then you are only kidding yourself.

Pros & Cons:
Inexpensive to replace - Pro
Sturdy enough for rough trails - Pro
Hose it out after the trail - Pro
Can take the weather with ease - Pro
Doesn't fold forward - Con
Not much padding - Con
Significant other may not be as comfortable, and therefor may not ride with you as much - Con/Pro - your call.

I like them, and I would stand behind them any day as a great inexpensive offroad seat. But if there is a little more money in the budget, take a look at PRP seats. There is also a kit to bolt them directly into your zook and let you ride in comfort. Spidertrax sells kits to mount both types into your zook.

I am currently having my stock seats reupholstered. I like the stock seats for the reasons BillJohn mentioned and restoring them to new condition seemed a great way to go. Cost-wise, it can be pretty reasonable depending on how wild you go. Mine are being totally re-done (including foam padding and heavy-duty but breathable fabric) and will run about $200 per seat. With some different choices, your cost could be lower.

I installed the "Tuffy" console which provides me with a secure location to store stuff in a non-secured vehicle...In conjunction with "The Club" I am comfortable with this arrangement in securing "Sammy". The cup holder is not bolted in place though as it gets in the way of the handbrake, but sits snugly right in front of the console. I have stock seats with mid priced seat covers. I could re-cover the seats but the weather would make it impractical should they get wet, muddy etc....whereas a set of seat covers is cheaper to replace if necessary.

the club?
you do know the 'in' thing to do is _not_ cut the club, but cut the steering wheel?
the wheel is much easier to cut. make one cut then slide the club off.

I think the OEM seats my be nice for some, but not for anyone about 6'4". They aren't all that all that nice. the seat part isn't long enough and the backs/headrest aren't tall enough.

thanks,
george

If someone wants to steal a samurai... they need to have their head examined. No profit in it... and can you imagine the getaway chase?

"Here we can see the suspects blazing down the freeway at 60mph! This high speed chase is very intense... The stolen vehicle, a 1989 suzuki SJ413.... over to you Bob"

"Yes, that's right Dianne, it appears that someone actually stole a Samurai. According to Consumer Reports, there is a posiblity that the vehicle could spontaneously flip over at any second. Police are trying to keep vehicles away from the Stolen Suzuki, but traffic is backing up as frustrated motorists are forced to remain behind the abducted vehicle."
