Hmm, I have a 2012 as well...never seen that before. Perhaps it is just meant to be covered up (on the inside of the fabric)?

I'm thinking it prevents the seat from moving past a set amount when moving it forward/backward.

I don't think so, it isn't connected to anything on the other side.

Fabric doesn't reach it. The passenger seat doesn't appear to have one.

I have also noticed this on my 2011 but have no clue what is might be.

2x. Yep, seat belt anchor. Is the Op joking? I hope he's not riding around without buckling up.

Don't know what it's function is, but it is definitely NOT a seatbelt anchor. Those thinking it is, did you look at your JK first?

Mine was slightly covered up with the seat covering around the reclining lever, but like in the photo, nothing is attached to it.

Maybe it's for some after-market billet aluminum accessory, available in black, brushed or polished appearance, made in China at a cost of $3.37, that we MUST have and that our wonderful suppliers will only charge us a measly $79.98.

Regards.

Mine is mostly covered by fabric. I wonder if it has anything to do with the back rest lever. I said that because if you look the lever on the driver seat is different from the one on the passenger seat.

It has to do with the raising the seat up feature for the driver's seat. Not sure why there is that threaded hole, but that's the reason some can see it and some can not cause its covered to different degrees. Crank your seat up and watch that goofy threaded hole appear. Lol

They must have changed where they mount the seat belts on some models. That is where my seat bely attaches as well.

Well shoot. I apologize for my earlier comment. I just ASSUMED that Jeep would engineer the seatbelt attachment points the same on all 2012 JKs. My 2012 JKR with height adjustable seat has the anchor point located on the floor almost directly underneath the seatbelt retractor mounted on the A pillar.

My seat belt anchors inside the roll bar post - behind the seat. It may just be the old anchor point??

Weird if it was a mid model change, but whatever, maybe the rubi didn't trust the seat mount?
That is also where my passenger seat belt is mounted

Mine looks just like Danny's except my seat is apparently at its lowest and is mostly covered. I raised it all the way up and it looked EXACTLY like Danny's. I didn't even realize I could adjust the seat height...

Not sure what the threaded hole is for.

I wonder if the floor mounted seat belt is for more aggressive off roading

I haven't messed around with the seat height. Maybe my seat is way up? I will screw around with the seat hight tomorrow and see what happens.

You might want to take a second look at your engine and see if its missing anything.

Does this have anything to do with whether or not you've got the optional "seat mounted airbags"?

Mine also has the empty bracket on the seat as my anchor point is down on the floor as well.

I played with the seat height adjuster today and found that the bracket never ducks out of view at either extent. I moved the fabric to cover it and then worked the seat to both extremes again. The fabric actually bunches a bit at the lowest point, like the bracket is meant to be outside it. This thing is really strange.
