Made by Little Car Seats out of CA. They can match factory leather or vinyl and do benches or singles (bench doesn't work well with the 2012 jku). Installs easily in 1-2 hours. Once in it is fairly easy to take in and out. Two bolts per seat go into bracket that is permanently bolted to undercarriage. Works well for young kids. My wife at 5'2 hits her head on the roll bars but my kids love sitting there. I have 4 so it allows whole family to ride in the Jeep. Can't wait for summer.

Jauker, the seats are interesting. I would get SSSSOOOO carsick riding in those - you don't want me to sit back there! Actually, all three of my boys would also end up carsick riding backwards like that! Reminds me of the station wagons back in the 1970's. My aunt and uncle had one and I thought it was so cool to ride back there when we went to visit them. It is probably good we never went far in it!!!!
We haven't used the seats for anything more than just around town. Time will tell. Designed for young kids. Roll bar gets in the way before they reach 5'.

Thanks a lot for the reply. Very cool. We have 5 kids and would like to use our JKUR as a toad behind our motorbike.

Speaking of Gecko and Crush, together! Anyone in the Huntsville, AL area want to get their Crush Jeep next to a Gecko for photographs in a month or so once I take delivery?

We've decided to hold off on the second jeep for now, not because we don't want it. My wife wants to go back to school and I don't feel like paying for both of them, lol.

Well except for the threadnaught that was the 2012 wrangler and june second thread, our humble thread is the second largest in the jk section by a fair margin. In fact it is larger than any thread in the other model forums. Keep up the post, crush will prevail!!!

I received an e-mail Tuesday 2/14 that my Crush shipped. I received a call from my dealer today and he said it will arrive Monday 2/27. I was really hoping it would be here a little sooner, but at least I now have a date

In celebration I went down to Xtreme Rubicons today and finalized my order for all the goodies that will go on it. Should be perfect timing for everything to arrive at his shop and the Jeep arriving at the dealership

Next up are Corbeau VX2000 seats to replace the god awful stock Wrangler seats, and then I start on my auxiliary lighting project centered around an assortment of Rigid LEDs.

Then I think I'll be done for a little while.
Very nice, balanced look!

The other day I was getting gas. The guy on the other side of the pump told me he loved my Jeep and he thought the orange was a great color. We started chatting. He told me all about two old trucks he has. He has already restored one and is working on the second one.

I have been getting lots of stories like that from males who comment on my Jeep -- they start telling me all about the older model vehicles they own and how they have already restored them or whatever they have completed.

I actually do like vehicles and know some about older cars and such, so I can hold my own in these conversations. I have never had men just start telling me about their vehicles in the past, though.

Does my driving a Jeep make men think that I must like vehicles and know about them?

I have been dressed up for work each time -- skirt, heels, etc. I don't think I give the immediate impression that I am a woman who knows cars! I guess I could be wrong. Like I said, guys never started talking cars like that with me before, though. (After they got to know me they would, but not at first!) I don't mind it, I just think it is interesting that it has happened several times since I have been in the Jeep.

Boys, give me your male perspective on this.

Thanks much. They're actually more of a satin finish but the look sort of changes depending on the ambient light and how dirty they are at the time. That's probably the best thing about black wheels, though. You don't have to keep them as clean as you do other colors.

Think of the children, is what I say. If it makes them happy then who are you to argue?

Thank you. I bet the Artillery wheels will look great on there. I'd considered them as well but got too good of a deal to pass up on these. Be sure to post pics once you've got it!

See previous statement of doing it for the kids.

Thank you. I've been trying to make sure that anything I do works together with the overall look. Finding a rear bumper has been kind of hard for that reason; so many of them use a textured powder coat while the front bumper is already a smooth coat.

Leaning toward the JCR Offroad rear bumper since they come bare metal and can be coated however I want once it arrives. So many mods... so restrictive of a budget.
