i am trying to clear out a bunch of crap and i have found a brat jumpseat and headrest. i probobly got it at a junkyard. i want to know if they are from a gen 1 or gen 2. are there any differences in the tube frame? i read recently on the board that the headrest slider is a different length between the two gens. can anyone give a measurement? did any of these come with out the grips? i think these were cut, but it is a very cean cut, looks stock.

The seats are the same on both Gens. I found that Gen one has a heavy "leather" embossed look in the plastic while the Gen2 had a fine pebbly finish. I'm pretty sure the headrests are the same. I can measure each tomorrow if you want.

thanks, hag. if you wouldn't mind measuring the two it would be great. the seat i have has the leather look (kind of like reptile skin?) so i'm guessing gen 1? actually the headrest has that finish as well.

I've got a set of gen 1 headrest installed in my gen 2 brat, I drilled out a new hole for the top bolt on them about 3/4 -1 inch up from the existing hole. I don't have any gen2's to compare to damn 86...

Sorry for the delay. The Gen 2 is nearly 24" hole to hole (it was hard getting a metal tape in there). So it must be a Gen1.
