Yes but they will be noticeably lower so I would install some 1" spacers under the seat risers so you won't feel like a little kid trying to see over the dash. That lower seating position is a common complaint among newer TJ owners which was instigated for questionable safety reasons to better align the body with the air bag.

In a Wrangler! Ok! Will the newer back seat work? I like it better.

Not directly, but I'm sure it would be pretty easy to fab something up. You would just lose the fold and tumble.

One interesting idea is if you mounted a rear seat from a cherokee or something and put some quick disconnects. I might just do that...
