Hi Martin,

What was the cost...including shipping? I saw that fabric a while ago in the SE3 and loved it! I recently discovered that Exmoor added that option...and I am psyched!

Thanks,
Brian

People keep mentioning the G4 seats which are more stock looking. Has anyone tried the Extreme Trakker seats?

The seats were very easy to re-do, but it took two hands so i didnt get much in the way of pix.

I think that, shipped, the new foam, upholstery, and heaters came to around 700 bucks. I dont remember what the pound rate was, but it wasnt good.

It took me longer to clean up and repaint the seat frames, mine were rusty and ugly and I had to sandblast them to get them decent again.

I was going to post today saying that it didnt meet the deadline of coming in 4 days, but when the mail lady asked for help getting mail out of the truck, I knew that was exmoor.
Very happy customer. Oh the clock works great, thanks

I'm surpised it came US Post - I seem to get repeatedly hosed by USPS. My stuff came UPS.

Glad the clock works.

Now if you want to be really cool, call George at RDS and demand a limited edition G4 clutch bracket.

David the leather seats look good. Does any one know if exmoore can do leather on the center portion of the seat also? JP
Also David is the black leather as black as the center console?

Have any of you guys tried going to a local upholster shop and getting the seats redone there? I had my two front seats in my disco redone for $80 by a guy who works out of his garage near my work. You cannot tell the differance from the original. Granted that is a exceptional deal and not the norm but it is worth looking around. I am getting my Defender seats done by the same guy in the near future.

here is a couple of pics of the seats installed.
G4s are nice, only complaint is that you stick to them, cant slid in and out.

What the hell happened to your plans of a 100". So let me get this straight, you sold your 90, so you can buy another 90?
You want to put Dana 60's on instead of the Salisbury's you had on your red 90.
Can we at least see pictures of this new truck?
you know if you put a 3-link on there you won't be able to use it as a daily driver

I am curious if anyone also purchased a retrim kit for a rear bench seat. I am trying to have the front seats match a second row forward facing bench.

Exmoor has some information on their website for the front seat kits and I also checked out some of the offerings via Atlantic British. Unfortunately there is not much regarding a rear seat kit.

I was considering the retrim kit with the logo until I read the negative review on this thread. If anyone has a picture of that material it would be helpful.

Any information would be appreciated.

I'm going to look at an ex-mod 110 today and might buy it also. This D90 went for sale at a great price and I couldn't pass on it (Tom Peacock's 94 D90). I won't turn this D90 to look like my old one. I'm only adding gears, lockers, axles, and off course the a 3-link b/c I think this system sucks and the 90 won't be very streetable


I'm also interested in the rear seat retrim. Anybody know anything?

I have the XS leather trim in my rig. I like it alot. Very high quality. You need seat covers though. The leather is good but stains kinda easy.

You're better off calling Exmoor direct. They ship it fast and are easy to work with, especially with questions you will have like:

"Should I get lumbar support?"

"What about heated seats for my little dog?"

Does anyone know about a somewhat weather resistant cloth that they might recommend? I am running with little to no HVAC in the summers in TX and the vinyle is just hot.
