Bestop Underseat Storage

Hey Everyone,

I just ordered the Bestop Underseat Storage and I tried to install it over the weekend while fighting off the flu. After a full installation, I had noticed that I could not move the seat back and forth.

After consulting with Quadratec, they informed me that if I had a fold and tumble seats it would not work. Would a stock seating arrangement for a 2004Jeep Wrangler TJ have fold and tumble seats?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks Everyone!

I assume you are installing on the drivers side. You did not say. Fold and tumble is on all models on the passenger side. On the drives side not all models have fold and tumble. (there have been a lot of threads and there does not seem to be a straight answer on which model/options have it on the drivers side) You don't know hat you have?

Second, Bestop knows there are issues with interferance with the seat slider. There are some long threads on Jepforum. I don't know if there has been a solution. Contact Geoff from Bestop here on the forum.

Vin221,

If you installed the storage box, then you don't have a fold-n-tumble. I got the same storage box for Christmas, went out to install a few days later, looked under my seat and there was no way it would fit. My '06 TJ X has the fold-n-tumble. There are all sorts of cross support brackets under the seat that prevents the storage box from fitting. Talked to Quadratec...didn't see the fine print about not fitting a fold-n-tumble seat. What a drag. Really wanted that for my valuables.

Did you install the box under the seat supports (between supports and floor)? That is my understanding of how they are to be installed.
