Built some new seats for the ranch jeeps...

Me and the ole father in law built these to go on his new ranch jeeps. I will add some more pics later when we have them mounted. but for now these will give you an idea. We are going to have them sprayed with bedliner. We built them to mount using the same attachment point as the hard top. So they are really easy to take off. Let me know what you think...

Thanks... welding aluminum is alot different than carbon steel, it fun though... We had a shop qoute us to do these, they said $26,000 out the door. That is just for the seats, not including the price of the jeep. Pretty rediculous huh!

We used the bumper mount bolts that were already in place. It is 4 on each side. I will try to get a pic for you. We used 1/2" thick aluminum plate to make the mount.
