UPDATE: I hadn't read your post super carefully (I'm like that!). But our product guy pointed out the 2011 model year in your comment. We do NOT recommend this for 2011 Wranglers, due to exactly what you're talking about. Evidently we don't want to be going around telling people to remove brackets from their seats.
It's your Jeep, do what you're happy with, and I'm still glad you had success. I'm just throwing in the cautionary tale, since I'm a corporate shill.
