There are 2 oval drain plugs, one behind driver and passenger front seats that are glued in. Use a hammer and wooden chisel to break them loose, they dont go back in to easy though. The 2 circle plugs in the front floor boards are body plugs, not really drain plugs. There are also some more in the rear area.

As for the rear seat. Stand it vertical and insert the driver side post all the way in first, then the passenger side will be easier to slide in.

Should I it the top rod or bottom rod in? And when I do that it just slides out of the drivers side? Should there be a click because I don't hear one.

It would help if you indicated what year yours is. 97-02 rear seats attach different from 03-06.

For the drain plugs, just lift up the carpet. You can't miss them.

I have an '02. Rear seat is fairly easy, should have slots for a cotter pin on each end of the bar. You slide the seat in poking the bar through one side then the other. Once both ends are inside the holes place the cotter pins in their slots on the bar. Should be located on the inboard side of the holes.

So if we are talking about the passenger side, the cotter pins should be like this Cotter pin---|-- or. ---|-cotter pin

Not quite sure with your picture. About 1/4" of the bar will stick outside of each hole in the brackets on both sides. The cotter pin will be inside the bracket talking to the jeep body being on the outboard side. So, looking from the front of the jeep towards the back -|(-------)|- where '-' is the bar, '|' is the bracket attached to the floor, and '( )' are the passenger and the driver side cotter pins respectively.

That was a better diagram thanks. Question though how does that keep the seat from failing off. And lets say I lost one of the cotter pins because it shoot off, what should I do?

Once you look at the seat set up and try to slide it one way or the other you'll understand how it works. With the pins in it simply won't slide b/c of the pin on the opposite side. As for what to use in place of a lost pin...try bailing wire or something temporarily until you can find another? I'm sure someone on here has lost theirs and can share what they did.
