Installed PRP Podium seats in the FJ

Figured I would show you all the new seats. Install wasnt difficult and required cutting and soldering some of the factory wires but Im happy to say I have no dash lights/ error codes without the factory SRS bags and no issues with the passenger seat weight/ seatbelt sensors.

Metal tech and PRP built a great system that incorporates the factory slider (read- way cheaper than buying seat brackets with them for other brands) and everything works great!

Heres some pics













Just fit!!



Heres a link to how to install them-

Nice write-up. I'd post the details here so that people don't have to go sign into the other place.

Wonder how this place will change with the same ownership?

Interesting that they started deleting posts over here now too in regards to the elephant hanging out in this forum.

Nice posting! Good thread. We are already having seen a jump in seat mount kits getting ordered.

Been on Pirate4x4 for years, nice seeing the FJC section getting a bit more active.

Hey everyone,

Quick update although I think everyone whos posted saw the posts in the other forum.

Installed the passenger seat airbag switch. The other is for my lights in my rear bumper.



Took this pig to Jambo and the seats were great! Really held me in place in some off camber situations. Makes wheeling a lot more enjoyable. The ride up and back was 4 1/2 hours and no fatigue - another plus!

Got back and even the Gilmer clay was easy to wash of the suede.
That was the big shocker -still cant gt it off the frame...who ever said WD40 works is a friggin Ass...

I was surprised how good they felt over the 4 1/2 hour drive. They actually have a nice rake to them that was exactly the same as how I used to keep the factory seat so I wasnt really seating upright like some of the competition seats. Overall they are perfect for me- someone who's in and out a lot may want a lower sides/ bolsters.

I havent seen the option yet for this seat but Im sure I could order it. They also make replacement seat covers so If I ever get a rip or they wear out- just order a new set.

Looks good but the not reclining thing is a deal breaker..

If someone sits in the back seats- yup deal breaker since they have no leg room now. But I drive alone or with one other so the back seats have come out. The angle they sit at is exactly how my factory seats used to sit so I actually noticed no difference other than them being a lot more comfortable and holding me in place.

PRP makes ones that do recline- I just wanted the higher bolsters
