Default off road seats?

I was wondering if it's illegal to have racing seats and driving on the streets? Im thinking about getting some mastercraft seats but i just want to be on the safe side.

Nothing illegal about them that I know of. I've been running Mastercraft Baja RS seats for awhile now, never an issue at inspection time.

I've been runnin Corbeau Baja RS seats in mine for just under a year now. No problems at all. If your actually going to install the 5 point seat belts though you need to build a main hoop with a cross bar about shoulder level right behind the seats to mount them. If you run them back to the floor boards and are wearing them when you wreck it will cause you more damage to your body then the factory seat and belt.

If you are running buckets with harnesses you need a cage, and nothing less. Get in a good enough of a wreck, and you will be trapped in place and be maimed/decapitated/crushed/etc.
