Need Help / Advice on Best Jump Seats?

Guys,

Looking at getting some vinyl twill jump seats for a 97 D90. I couldn't find any great conditioned used seats here. So I am looking for advice.

Exmoor has seats on rovers north for appx $229 each (no seatbelts)
http://www.roversnorth.com/store/t-h...or-trim-1.aspx

Atlantic British sells a whole set of 4 for $1400 with belts included
http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9509.cfm

DAP sells single seats without lap belts for $169
http://www.dap-inc.com/acc/app/lr/lr...-int-ext.shtml

Which are the best, or are there other sources out there that I am missing?

also, are these a biatch to install?

Thanks. GW

Are these going into a ST or a SW?

I would contact Safari Rover and get a set of forward facing jump seats.

He has three kids and needs four seats. I told him to get a 110 or sell a child.

Its bad enough trying to sell a defender in this economy...I can't imagine trying to sell a child right now!

How about adding a middle seat (for an infant - you can go with a Mud U.K. seat rail relocator and add a little bit more leg room) and go with the 2 forward facing seats. Or ther may be room for 2 jump seats and a rear bench set if you move it back toward the door?

He can't add the middle seat as he has a 1997 with the auto trans.

Can't sell a kid. Although the thought has crossed my mind.

That said, need seating for five plus. First question still stands...what's my best option for 4 rear jump seats?

Find someone selling their jump seats out of a 97 SW. They usually run $600ish for the set with the belts.

They are pretty easy to install.

I have been looking for some too, & my inclination is to go with dap as the prices are reasonable & you get a new seat as opposed to spending similar $$$ and getting used seats with issues etc.
