    Default Race Seat Anyone?

    I bought a Sparco Evo II US race seat, and it will be here tomorrow. Factory seat feels like it weighs about 50-60lbs, and this one is only 19lbs. I should have the mounting brackets built and installed next week. If it isn't too uncomfortable, then I will buy a 2nd one for the passenger side so that the truck doesnt look so empty on the inside with just a driver seat...haha.

    Has anyone else put a race seat in their truck?

    I just found a pic of crazeejay's old setup. Have to search for Gadier's.

    Race seat is here. It was touch choosing the right seat because there isn't much info out there regarding what size seat fits and what is comfortable. Hopefully this will help you guys that are considering this mod.

    This seat is the Sparco Evo II US. I am 6'2" 210lbs and have a 36" waist. I fit snug in this seat. It isn't tight to the point of it being uncomfortable, but there isn't any room to slide side to side either...pretty much perfect fit for drag racing purposes. The padding is thick and actually more comfortable than I thought it would be. Anyone with a size 38" or larger waist would probably want to go with the Evo III instead.

    As for sizing in the cab, the seat looks proportional to the overall size of the cab. I think 2 of these would look very nice once installed. As soon as we get the driver side brackets complete, I will snap some pictures to show you how it looks in the cab.

    Nice! I'll keep that seat in mind. You're literally the same exact height, weight, and waist size as me. Haha.
