Extra Wide Seats in Jeep TJ

I'm trying to decide what seats to get for my 1Ton TJ build, and I've narrowed it down to either the Mastercraft 3G, PRP Comp Elite, or the PRP Podium, as these are the most comfortable of the seats I tried.

So...

Does anyone know if 2 of the following seats will fit properly in a Jeep TJ?

Mastercraft 3G 2" wider version?
PRP Podium Elite 2" Extra wide version?
PRP Comp Elite 2" Extra wide version?

I'm not concerned with the center console, but I would rather not have the seats touching and the drivers seat should be roughly centered on the steering wheel.

Thanks for any information you have.
Joel.

I would appreciate pictures of the set up as well as which seat he chose and whether both of the seats are "Fat Guy Friendly". lol...

Thanks
Joel

He has these in the 2" wider and 4" taller. Both seats are the same. I am waiting on a pic.

Thank you for the information. Those seats are 22" wide standard. Meaning the extra wide is 24" wide at the widest part would fit but will be tight.

Might not be able to swing the Podium Elite though.

Thanks

I have the PRP Comp extra wide (24") in a TJ. No center console, driver side is centered (or about as close as you can get) to the wheel. The left side is right up against my door bar which is kicked out past the door opening. Well the seat isn't against the part thats kicked out. Without the door bar a door should fit but I never tried it as the doors are long gone and the door bar prevents that. There is room between the driver and passenger seat but not a lot. A few inches in some spots, a bit more in others. I have the t-case shifters sort of between the seats. With a bigger passenger I'll bump them shifting and driving at times.

I looked but cant find any decent pics. Guess I didnt take any once I got the cage done and seats in or lost them.

Door bar. Leg side bolster is up against the bar but I can fit a cover between them. Left shoulder area is against the bar a bit tighter but I can still squeeze the seat cover on.

@frostytj That is exactly what I needed. Thank you very much.

Knowing this it doesn't look like I can put two of the Podium Elite seats in the TJ and still shut the half doors. So I'll be getting some Comp Elites.

Awesome.

Thank you to all the members who helped with this. you guys ROCK.
Joel.

Nice, I've never seen a bench seat in Jeep. Can't wait to see it.

I’ve been looking at Corbeau seats, and they are mostly 38” and smaller people

I no longer qualify for that size seat. Buy I also am interested in seats for larger people. I’m 6’ 275, I’m looking for soemthing that can be used with a 5 point harness
