help with a tj rear seat

ok so here whats going on,

i have a 2000 tj sport, rhino lined, no back seat, no mounting brackets.

ive purchased a 2003 sahara rear seat, because it was cheap, and i'm an idiot for not researching why the seat years differ

but heres my problem, how should i make this work??

ive done a little research now and have a couple of options but i dont know if they'll work..

1) buy the 4 floor brackets i need from "make it jeep" ,.. should be about 80 bucks , then get bolts.. redrill, and put that seat in....


2) i know someone who has a set of 2004 Lj floor brackets (which are front and back strikers together on one long plate, instead of two.) bolt those down and make that work.
but is the rear seat in the 2004-2006 Lj and 2003-2006 tj the same and the brackets the same measurements for the seat?


3) sell the set find the right year seat and find the right brackets. = more time and money..

so what do i do here? has anybody had this problem?? please be supportive here. i'm new to jeeps and i'm trying.

or maybe you could just order the seat pan to your jeep and just swap the seat pan into the sahara seat that way no modifying to frame or tub or anything else required just a couple hog ring clips and couple beers and your done. may be even lucky to find one on ebay

i know this thread is old, but i just did this swap (04 seat into a 2000).
all i did was take the front brackets and mount them where the front brackets for the 2000 brackets bolt into.
located the spot for the rears, drilled holes, and bolted them into place.
the seat out of the 04 is much nicer than the earlier tj's in my opinion...
