      I am about the same build as you. Both the reclineable and ultra wide are comfortable for me. I have spent the most time in the reclineable and no complaints. The corbeau fabric will fade over time but they are good seats.

      Thanks Brian! Are yours mounted to stock tracks? Wanted to make sure I won't be sitting up any higher.. don't want to be too close to the roll cage.

      I dont own either of them, just have alot of seat time in them in friends vehicles. I have a prp daily driver seat in my explorer adapted to the stock tracks and they sit just fine.

      JP is running 37's and 5.13's. No problem running around on the street or on the highway at 65-70. May have to drop it out of O/D on long grades but nothing big. This is with 4.0 ohv and 5 speed auto.

      My ranger is running 4.88 and 37"s. It does well on the road. I did the 4.88s when I was using 35"s and no trailer. If I did it again I would do 5.13 or deeper if I could. Not a big enough deal to spend the money on now. No matter which gears you choose you will be faster then the green flatty from Colorado.

      I have a goal.. it's to out-do the Land Rover.. lol

      started working on storage, found a leaking pass rear wheel seal, replaced the seal, rotor, and pads on both sides. took it out this evening and ripped out the rh headlight housing, dented the fender and took a tree limb to the drivers door. now my list grows again.

      been a busy past few weeks.. high pinion 44 is in, truck is currently at a friend's shop getting a tire carrier built and integrated into the rear bumper and roll cage.

      corbeau seats are sitting in my garage along with 5 new Falken 37" MTs on 17" steel wheels.

      will update with pics as soon as I get the truck back and wheels mounted.

      Few updates. It sounds like he blew up his front lunchbox locker yesterday. Some spider gears were found and then welded up so now he has a front "Eastwood Locker"

      Today is supposedly a 700 mile road day but there is also some wheeling going on too. Todays Four0Sport's whoops

      As in, it needs a new body. I'm not sure but I think the hatch is the only part that didn't get destroyed, and that's because of the spare tire holder. :eek: LOL!

      They are Badges of honor on an epic excursion. I'm sure he is proud of each and every dent. :thumbsup:
