Installing Rugged Ridge XHD Rubicon Seats

Posted in How To on January 1, 2012

Jeep CJ, Wrangler, and Cherokee owners now have multiple new seat upgrade options available from Rugged Ridge. In addition to the XHD Rubicon Seat, Rugged Ridge also offers its XHD Reclining seat, a base model option that closely matches the factory-style seat; the XHD Ultra Seat, a reclining model that features a removable and adjustable headrest; and the XHD Off-Road seat, featuring side bolsters, three seat belt harness cutouts for use with a multi-point racing seat belt harness, and built in adjustable bulb lumbar support.

The Rugged Ridge XHD Rubicon seat is designed to fit ’76-and-newer Jeep CJs, ’97-to-’06 Wranglers, and ’84-and-newer Cherokees.

The XHD Rubicon seat features expanded top and bottom side bolsters designed to keep occupants seated comfortably during off-road driving situations. They’re constructed of durable, automotive grade textured vinyl and are available in three factory matching colors: gray, black denim, and spice.

All of the XHD seats are designed to allow full functionality in TJ Wranglers, CJs, and Cherokees. The unique design incorporates the factory front slider feature along with a built-in reclining mechanism for driver comfort. The Wrangler’s factory slide and tumble feature can be used by simply adding on the optional fold and tumble bracket kit. This kit allows for ease of entry and exit in to the back seat area.

The stock seats in our 1997 Jeep Cherokee weren’t completely destroyed but they had definitely seen better days. Their comfort was waning and we were ready for something better.

The heavy-duty seat base incorporates a CAD-designed girder system, which is said to provide twice the strength of other replacement seats. A dense foam pack and heavy-duty raised spring design creates a more comfortable seating experience ensuring seat longevity and comfort all in one package. Each seat offers an industry leading three-year limited warranty.
