School me on...Racing harnesses

I am just full of posts today, my birthday is coming up and I was thinking about getting some harnesses with the money I get and tieing them in to my flat bed...these are the two options, the first one is way cheaper, but I don't know if it will hold up...

Is there any advantage to having a camlock style over a buckle style. I don't plan on rolling, but I want to be able to stay firm in my seat, esp. after the thread on pirate about the guy in the sami..
Also, other sources for fairly cheap harnesses appreciated.
Also, is a 4 point sufficient or do i need a 6 point?

make sure you attach the seat belts to the same thing your seats are attached to, you don't want your bed ripping off in a roll and choking you in your seat that's attached to the body. that would not be too much fun.

I dont think any "camlock" belts are legal in Score (not totally sure), from what I have read the camlock belts fill with dirt and dont like to latch or possibly unlatch. I would go with the more inexpensive but totally sufficient latch style. The Crow belts at Fibercraft are really nice for the money($90ish) but you can save mabye $22 if you buy the cheapies at Summit,they are stil SFI aproved. Remember to keep them out of the sun and replace them every 3 to 6 years or so on a rec vehicle.

i'll vouche for the crowes. We had the 5pts on our CJ5. Worked very well with harness designed seats. Most of the time on the road you just wore the lap belt though. It takes forever to scoop up all the straps and attach them

it'll all be worth it the first time you roll and they keep you in your seat while you're upside-down over a cliff :)
