    I had good success in staying in place while Rallying using a 4 point harness and the stock seats. Huge difference over running with the stock belts.
    how did ur run the belts? i want to play around on tarmac but im too cheap to buy new seats

    Who says I'm not going to buy a sports car? Fact of the matter is the VX - albeit great for an SUV - is still an SUV, and by definition is big and fat. If you think the VX is close to a sports car, you should take a spin in a Lotus Elise and you'll know what I mean. Granted, I don't want the VX to BE a Lotus, but I want to tailor MY VX to MY liking.
    I said, its as close as you're going to get to a sports car in an SUV. Never said it actually was a sports car. That being said, I've spent plenty of time in some pretty Italian exotics, so I think I could tell a sports car if I sat in one.

    What color are your stock seats?

    Sports car???

    This thing IS a sports car, for an Isuzu anyway. What"car"did they ever build ? The Stylus?Some sports car. Have a hard time calling it a truck. Sure body on ladder frame(like older CARS) Not a whole heck of alot of utility here either.....no soccer teams, plywood, or landscape plants here hmmmmm. Not a car, not a truck, van, or suv. A sv? we're back to the sport car thing. I know... lets call it a crossover vehicle love ya, wayne

    I call it a Sport Truck. 4wd, low gear ratios, ladder chassis - yeah, it's a truck. TOD, great handling, and some good quickness sure make it sporty. It sure isn't a utility truck. No bed, no cargo space, no towing. So it's a sport truck. Truck chassis designed specifically for sport (racing) usage.

    Sounds like a lot of guys getting rid of original seats if you are would buy especially leather recaro's as Japanese R/H drive models never had Leather these rigs need to be preserved this would be a great upgrade.
