Back Seat Mod

I was reading in another thread about someone wanting to tilt the backseats back to make them more comfortable. How do you do that? Is it a difficult mod?

The other thread was acutally on a different subject so I started a new one dedicated to the seat mod vs highjack the other thread.

Probably just a few washers on the bolt imbetween the nut and the floorboard would do it.

Just remove the backseat and take someone else's vehicle when more than 2 people are involved.

Boom, solved.

I'm planning on doing this to my Jeep this weekend. One owner used custom cut blocks of aluminum bar stock, most use washers some paint them so they don't stand out.

Here are some threads about the topic, some have links to other threads.
