5 seater YJ

I am looking for ideas of how I can modify my YJ to seat 5 people.

Front bench seat but that would look stupid. could do some major fab work and shorten the width of the rear wheel wells.

Easiest I have seen is to mount two smaller benches OVER the wheel wells so the feet of the people meet in the middle.....

Not sure of the legality vis a vi seatbelts......

Not sure you can do that safely/legally, something like this might work...

Corbeau: 42-Inch Baja Bench

I think you might be able to fit the 42 inch in the back (so to speak)

My old Toyota FJ landbruiser had two seats on both sides facing each other, was pretty cool, but that was before shoulder belts.

hmmm... not a lot of room for that. We've put a pillow on the center console in an emergency and rode 3 up in the front but that was all.

That's what she said,

But seriously, I have seen a Jeep here in NC with 2 bench seats facing inboard on the wheel wells.
