Unhappy How to recline Back Seat

Not sure what jeep designers had in their mind to design the back seat that cannot be reclined easily. I purchased a new Jeep Wrangler 2012 last on 01/21/12. Any tips on how to recline the back seat will be greatly appreciated.

Very uncomfortable back seats.

I don't give a hoot about the rear. I am driving

Is this a JKU?

There is a mod that tilts the seat a bit. Makes it more comfy I believe .

Some folks have used washers, but I like the way j_westy handled it.

That's a great idea from Westy.

I used the washer and haven't had any problem. I wrapped mine in electrical tape to help hold in place. My kids act like a trampoline is in the back seat and not given me any problems.

Yeah, it is on my list as well. Just need to find a metal shop to cut the pieces. Don't have anything myself that can cut metal that thick.

Do you have the metal yet? If so just check to see what shipping would be.
I'll get a price for what the metal would cost. Not looking to make anything so if a few people would want it I can't imagine it would be more then a few dollars.

Ok just got off the phone with local metal supply. 12' of t6061 aluminum is $28. Figure I can do 6 kits minus 1 for me so that leaves 5. I think they will all fit is a usps flat rate box for $5. I will check on ups pricing as well. so with shipping and the cost of the aluminum your looking at $10 each. If we can get 5 (or groups of 6) then it's a go.

4 pieces 2.5"
3 pieces 4"
All in bare metal.

Ok seems like the first 5 are taken and the next 4 of 6. Again I'm not making anything on this. I know there are (but haven't read) the forum rules. Just want to help some fellow jeepers. Mods if this is against the rules let me know.

I will go tomorrow and pick up the flat stock. I will cut 1 set first to make sure the measurements are correct. ( I'm sure they are but don't want to send them out not being 100% sure) once all are ready to be shipped I'll contact all of you as posted.


Didn't mean to hijack your thread. I guess start my own.
