Talking Back seat question...no not that

I looked at the PDF version of the O Manual but didn't find this. Is there a way to lock the back seat in the folded position? There must be. Yes, I moved the front seats all the way fwd but the rear seat does not seem to want to lock in the folded position. When you drive like that it just flops around...

The OM didn't seem to say anything except how to fold it.

Actually not sure. I pull it out if I need room. I do recall the same thing happening
when folded

Wait -- that was wrong

Well, if you're short--that could be a problem--

I'd fold the seats down and then PACK either cushions/towels/blankets, between the rear seat "headrest" and the back of the front seats--

I'm pretty tall, so my seats are all the way back and the pressure of the rear seat "headrests", keeps them SOLID !

Good luck

JIMBO

Oh...OK...I removed the headrests so I could see. I'll just remove the seat I guess. I just thought it was meant to lock/snap in place. The rear seats are so hard to get into I might as well take it out.

When I moved my jeep to Nevada 2˝ yrs ago, I took the rear seets out, so I THOUGHT i'd have mere room for recovery gear--WRONG-

Then as my sons started visiting, WITH GRANDKIDS, having the seats out was not a good idea-so, if you need those seats even now and then--put the headrests back on and reinstall the seats--then they'll stay down solid if you do like I said--

It's a jungle out there-

Make sure an application of scotch guard is applied before anything is pulled out in the backseats.

Yours is 4 door, mine is two. I have no kids or grandkids. We have cars that will seat four comfortably. Getting into the back seat on a two door jeep is not for the old and stove up.. Dogs can ride back there just fine w/o seats.

The back seat sucks and thats all there is to it. Mine is sitting in the garage and when I pull the trigger for the Okoles it will only cost me half as much.

I haven't pulled that trigger yet cause I'm thinking I need the cover for the back seat too... Modding Jeeps is so hard.

For the first 6 months of rear seat folded up, it was no problem. After driving around with grandkids myself for a few days, then when folded forward, the rear seat actually WOULD flop a little IF I got on the gas extra heavy.

Haven't settled the question yet, but I do keep it folded forward with a wooden box behind it with tools etc that seem to be heavy enough to pretty much eliminate the flop. Unless I move the wooden possibles box.

Grandkids are the only near-humanoids that will fit in the rear of my JK.

It comes out easily enough but I don't have anywhere else to store it presently. Any where I put it will be in the way, except "outside"....and that ain't a good choice this close to monsoon season. Heavy thing as well.

I have a 12 JKR with the subwoofer. I took the seat out to install the cargo mat and didn't think it was that easy. I don't think it is going out again. I would guess it would be easier without the sub. Wife has 08 JKUR so can use that when extra room is needed. No kids. Haven't noticed the flop yet, only 200 miles.
