My first set of MasterCraft race seats were installed into a 2000 Toyota Tacoma. That truck would later go on to become a pre-runner that would help several of my friends prepare for races, also doubling as a chase truck. MasterCraft seats are comfortable, well-built and last through a ton of abuse. Even though the benefits of running a suspension race seat are well known, new racers and Jeep owners can’t always fit the bill. Well, today is your day. The new MasterCraft Sahara drops $100 off it’s near twin the popular Baja RS seat, while still providing top-quality features.
The Sahara is aimed to get everyone into a proper seat off-road. Factory seats are meant to do one thing well, provide comfort on long flat roads. Once you leave the pavement, that stock seat is sending your body bouncing all over the cabin rock after rock. A good suspension seat will eliminate that with it’s deep-sided construction and 5-point harness system (you must add).
The Sahara is designed as a direct bolt-in application for Jeep CJ5, CJ7, and YJ’s using the same mounting tabs found on the Baja RS. Inside is a precision-crafted tubular construction, open-mesh liner, and high resiliency foam for comfort. The Sahara comes in only 2 model numbers, depending on which side you want the reclining lever on. These seats aren’t just about comfort, they have also been tested and rated to pass all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). To keep cost down, they are Imported and only come in Black.
Getting into a set of seats with the MasterCraft label on the side is hard to beat. They have been the top choice among off-road racers in Baja, King of the Hammers champions and countless Jeep owners across the country. Grab yourself a pair today at MasterCraft ($349/each).
