What configuration did you choose for the PRP seating? Looks like they offer Vinyl or Vinyl with suede insert. Heated option too. How are these holding up over the years? Been about 5 years now. Any more details on the frame install to the factory location would be great.

The conversation turned towards the MT seat brackets designed to mount the PRP brand seats in an FJC and may fit the T4R. After several careful measurements and a few pictures sent to LT for seat slider verification we came to the conclusion that this just might work. Sign me up!

Additionally I ordered the Occupant Classification Sensor (OCS) bypass module in order to turn the passenger Airbag on or off, but during install we learned it was not needed for the 2004 install. Newer year models might require this bypass module. This part was returned and credited without a hassle.

I spent the next hour looking at seat designs, options available and seat materials and colors. I quickly placed my order and agreed to be the guinea pig.
Here is the model I choose for my 2004 Sport with optional lumber support and rear seat pockets.

Here is the final picture. During the following posts I will retrace my steps and describe how I got to this point by describing the ease at which the products went together and what I ran into during assembly.
