MRAP Seats in a 90

I want to replace my short backed MOD seats. Has anybody ever tried installing MRAP seats?

Are you talking about the Mastercraft seat ? The ones I've seen are the
reclining suspension seats.

Shown here.

Also found this on pirate.....long gone though.

Also these on eBay...totally different these are air suspension seats.

Amen...and MRAP is like an up armored series truck....

Now an MATV's seat...that is a different story (within reason).

I need to replace the seats that are in my truck. Somebody on Steel Soldier was selling some MRAP seats $175 each that I was considering. After reading your comments it looks like I need to keep looking. Anybody have any replacement seats that they are willing to deal on?

I say that MRAP seats aren't comfortable, but you must remember that this was in Iraq with full body armor and kit when I last sat on one.

Ray_G hit the nail on the head. MATV seats are the way to go

Agreed. Don't torture your a$$ with MRAP seats (err, phrasing).

Yeah unless you just want the novelty... I'm not sure why you would torture yourself with MRAP seats.
