Seat upgrade

I have a '92 XJ w/ grey interior (kinda irrelevant, but). I've seen newer '99 Leather seats that I'd like to put in mine if possible.

What are the mods I'd need to do to accomodate this upgrade?



The seats come w/ matching door panels and I'd also like to put those on...I have power windows/locks. Will these mount, match?



Last: If I can't get my hands on these seats has anyone ever dropped in a set of Grand Cherokee seats in their XJ? Mods needed?

If anyone out there has any for sale let me know....I'm looking. I'm not too particular w/ the color as this is going to have it's headliner taken out, it's sagging, and a cage put in it. Just in good shape is all.

Thanx

ZJ seats bolt into 95'+ XJs, but anything older than a 95' will require some mods. I have some 95-96' XJ seats I'm trying to get in my 91'. I think just unbolting the seat mounting bracket from the seat and swapping the 95'+ seat to the 91' bracket will work. That's one of my projects, but it looked like it should work fairly easily. Check out NAXJA.org for more info.

OR just ask very specific XJ/MJ questions on NAXJA.org

Im with Fatwreck on this one, i almost upgraded my seats in my TJ to the newer Sahara seats, im glad i didnt and went with some mastercrafts instead, they are more comfortable than my stock ones, and obviously alot more safe with 5 point harnesses.............
