I guess I never posted my thread on the rear Baja bench. Here it is from another forum.
*Still LOVE my seats!
I am finally able to report the completion of one project for my TJ...the seat conversion.
At the start of the year, I installed a set of Corbeau Baja RS seats. My factory driver's seat was shot. Instead of replacing that one seat, I decided to jump my build plan a few steps and went for the upgrade.
The first part of the upgrade was swapping in the front seats. The second part was to swap out the rear seat to accomplish a full matching set. It was always in the eventual plan to add the rear seat; however, I am happy to say that my wife expedited that step. Her fear was Corbeau would discontinue the seat, or they would change the color options. I am ashamed to say that I let her think that was a possibility
On to the seat. I placed my order with Nate at Corbeau. He's a great guy to deal with; very helpful and very responsive.
The front seats were ordered through quadratec.com, and I had no issue with that transaction, but this go-round I decided to go straight to the source to possibly make a new connection.
The seat ordered was the Corbeau 40-Inch Baja Bench seat.
This seat is designed with the TJ in mind. They also offer a 36" and 42" bench seat, but the 40" is ideal for a direct fit into a TJ.
I ordered the seat with the black cloth front and black vinyl rear, to match the front seats.
After my attempts at DIYing adapter brackets for the front seats (as was documented in my front seat thread, noted above), and eventually just buying the Corbeau brackets, I decided I would skip that headache and just ordered the TJ specific bracket for this seat, from the start.
The seat arrived in four days from ordering.
The seat and bracket were sufficiently packaged.
A quick unpacking revealed both items in perfect condition, completely unscathed.
I will admit at this point, I jumped the gun a bit. Before bolting the bracket to the seat, the female-end of the seat belt should be installed in the seat. With the bracket in place, there is not enough room to push the clicker part through the already tight hole.
With that error realized, the bracket was removed and the seatbelt clicker was put in place.
With that exercise complete and lesson learned, I addressed the actual belt portion of the seat belt. Before bolting the bracket to the tub, the belt needs to be routed through the slits in the seat. There will not be room to do this later.
When bolting the bracket in place, it is wise to only partially start the installation of the bolts. They can all be tightened once all five bolts are in place.
After tightening all five bolts (includes the single rear seat belt bolt), the seat is ready for a very eager five year old to enjoy his
