yeah thats how i picked up a 98 about 1.5 years ago. i fixed it all up and made a profit on it though lol when you pull those pieces off of the door panel, heat the back of it up to make the removal of the piece easier. they're epoxied in.

I got them at a junkyard out of a 96 eddie bauer explorer and yeah thats how they look. the drivers seat is a little messed up near a bolster because im an idiot and used leather cleaner like 3 days after doing them but it will be perfect once spring rolls around. the passenger seat still looks like it did in the picture which was taken in april or so.

heres the thread. i wrapped the cover to my center console in the black vinyl i was telling you about

just two wires per seat. two grounds, two power wires and a 30A inline fuse. they bolt right in though. both of mine are 8 way adjustable with power lumbar and bolsters

just lightly scuff them with hot water/soap solution (i used dawn dish soap) using a red 3M scotch pad. it will get all the embedded dirt out of the cracks and pores. Use microfibers to dry it up. you don't need the SEM soap solution. its just soap lol

I just got a 4inch superlift with 33's and the front wheels rubs the wheel pretty bad when you turn. I'm in the process of finding a solution right now

You must have 12.5" wide tires. I run 10.5"x33" with only a 1.5" torsion bar lift and I get no rubbing. You will probably need to get wheels with less back spacing to push the tires out further to eliminate the rubbing when you turn.

Agreed. I mounted 285/75-16's on the stock 16*7 rims the other day and have no rubbing at stock height except when backing up at full turn. That should go away when I get a chance to do a 1"body lift plus torsion crank and rear block.
