I was going to go out and measure for you but I have power seats. Although I think they are the same as the non-power one. Let me know.

A little info if you did not see, I hate my seats but I like being able to get in the seatbox and I like the fact I can wash them with a hose.

Okay Matt, just got them.

Widest part of the Driver's seat is 21" (towards the front of the seat cushion)

Height is (from the rails to the top of the cushion) 9"

Overall, the seat is about 35" in height (from the seat rail to the top of the headrest).

Hope that helps...goodluck!

Yes, most non-power ones were cloth. Usually on 96SD's. The 94 and 95 have that "handle" looking headrest and are mostly cloth. That might be a good option for your project as they are less bulky.

Just looking at the D1 and D90 tonight, I would not personally go with it. I think they will look too big. And as Mike pointed out, you loose the functions of the D90 seats...(i.e. washable).

Matt, I have the cloth seats on my 96 D1. They are manual. I have the leather seats on my 95 D1 and they are manual also.

I have a set of leather seats from my 91 RR for sale. Do you need any measurements or pics? Let me know.

RR seats will fit, one of the chaps who off-roads regularly with us has a pair of RR front seats in his 90
