  • sick of seat belts locking you in???

    here's an easy fix... before you start the trail, while sitting in your Jeep, fasten your seat belt and locate the connection point at the roll bar above your shoulder. use some sort of clamping device in front of that spot to stop the seat belt from retracting any further than comfortable. enjoy wheeling even more!!!

    that's a good idea ... i hate when that happens! i'd love to get those racing belts, but i've heard they're kind of a pain in the a55 to use.

      Get Lap Belts!! They're not very expensive, $50 or so and you can keep your existing 3 point belts. I would steer clear from 5 point belts, especially in rock crawling, they would make it damn near immpossible for you to lean out of the vehicle and see what your doing.

      Ya know what I'm sayin'

          I run 3" lap belts in my Jeep and I LOVE THEM! Naturally I use the 3-point belts on the highway.

              For our purposes any lap belt is fine. Now if we were racing the belts would have to be certified, but were not so they dont

                I got mine from Summit. There's a variety to choose from. You can have the adjusters on the floor, or up by the buckle. I like the adjusters on the floor so there's not so much stuff in my lap. I've adjusted my driver's side belt once, when I installed it. The passenger side gets adjusted more often as different passengers ride with me. Currently, it's adjusted rather small since I had some little guys riding with me last weekend

                    We got our RJS 5 point from Summit, but we just use the laps when crawling. Most will attach as many points as you want... 60 bucks for the hook latch, twice that for the push ins....

                      glad you posted that carizzojim, didn't realize that the push in were twice as expensive. I like them though, what I've seen, they are easier for the average person to use. Now I have to consider cost. Thanks for the info.
