i've seen em with 4. it's harder , more money , and you totally lose the ability to haul stuff.

The only box I've seen with 4 racing seats was the Tein xB. It looks great but I'm guessing that you'd have to fab your own bracketry for the rear seats. I had Sparco Speed seats in my box for a while and if you don't have brackets for the front yet, stay away from the weaponR brackets. They sit super super low and you'd have to be north of 6'4" to be able to see out over the steering wheel with those things. :D

i was going to do 4 sparco milano 2's, but then i remembered my car is my daily driver and i couldnt haul stuff haha. if i had 4 racing seats today i wouldnt be able to get my body kit home. its all about what you do/haul. if you only haul ass then go for 4!

edit: the USA fiberglass widebody xA has 4 racing seats also...

It really depends on which particular model you go with too. I had non-reclinable seats and they would've been awesome if they were in a race car or show car that I didn't have to drive every day (now they're in the red MotorFx xA), but they were too hard to get in and out of and too supportive for daily driving. The Milanos are nice because they're reclinable and they are supportive, but comfortable at the same time. Definitely sit yourself down in all of the models that you're interested in, to see if it's something you'd want to be in when you're driving the box.

Four look real good, first car that comes to mind is the White Jetta in Fast & Furious.

Yep, the TEIN xB has its seating set-up "cathedral" style so those in the back can see out the front windshield.

Yes, the Weapon*R brackets sit low, but they also have some custom sets that raise the seat buttom to the factory level. Tim(Scionsniper) has a set.

weapon r makes standard height brackets too huh brad? wonder if they'll fit our under-seat subs with em... hmm..


right now my plan once i get my seats will be to cut the stock seats up and use the risers from them and weld the racing seats sliders onto the legs.
