I would price out a seat rebuild of your current ones from an upholstery shop.

I bought a pair of similar seats but soon found they woun't fit because of interference between the front inside corner of seat and the floor hump. I adapted them to the original seat rails to keep them properly centered, but maybe would fit if moved over almost against door, not very good for comfort. replacement seats cannot be any thicker than original seats for best fit. At lest that is my experience, so gave up on that idea and kept original which were in good shape anyway, I just wanted different ones.

I think those seats your looking at are not worth consideration. Real so called racing seats cost a lot more than that !

Has anyone found seats that will fit ?

Eagles are kind of weird for seat fitment due to the hump from the t-case...If you had the more common nutmeg or blue interior finding descent junkyard seats is a bit easier...The garnet interior, however,  is probably one of the harder ones to come by next to black. I did see a write up in the interior section i believe, which shows how to modify jeep cherokee seats to fit.

Lookin good man!! These motors can turn descent numbers by swapping the 4.2 head for a higher compression 4.0 head and cam out of an early 90's cherokee.
