Seats for my YJ

Hello all,

I just bought my first Jeep and I need to replace the front seats. My question is will seats out of a Jeep Cherokee work?

I found a pair of seats in real good shape but need to make sure before I get them.

Thank you!

Any seats will work if you have a hand held grinder and a welder.

But if you are asking if the Cherokee seats will just bolt right in? The answer is No. The bolt pattern is not the same. Been there tried that. The Cherokee seat mounting holes are spaced wider apart than the Wrangler's.

Depending on your mechanical ability, the seats out of a GrandAm, Cavalier, and Sunfire are suppose to be a direct bolt in. The S10 and Ranger seats are almost bolt in, depending on how you want to attack it, you can use the Donor sliders and bolt them to the jeep seat brackets, or you can adapt the jeep sliders to the donor vehicle seat base.

I know these seat swaps work for the 91+ with the smaller 6" console, it might be a bit tight on the pre-91 models with the wider center console.

I used the sunfire/cavalier seats. unbolted the jeep seats from the jeep tracks, removed the cavalier sliders, use the cavalier seat bolts to bolt em to the jeep sliders/tracks. would have been a simple fast job if every single bolt on my Ohio jeep wasn't rusted in place.
