How far back do 2004-2006 Unlimited front seats recline?

This is surprisingly hard information to find online.

Bare with me....

I'm asking on behalf of my dog. He loves riding in cars. Specifically in the front seat. When the seat is fully reclined, he sits with his butt near the headrest with his front paws on the seat base. I got a new car a few years ago and didnt think to check the seat recline. So now I want to get something he can ride in.

The seat needs to recline almost flat (resting on back seat). Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

He might like the rear seat more or just remove the rear seat and he'll have tons of room. I have the seat removed with a dog bed back there when my rott is with me. And that's in a TJ so yours will have tons of room.

Dog-lover also.
But if you aint wearing your seatbelts on paved roads, you sit in the back.
TJ rears are out, plenty space for my two bull-mastiffs.

Dogs in vehicles in NJ must be restrained. I use this for mine.

Your dog will have plenty of room. I have a 65 lb dog and she loves to ride in the jeep.

Sorry to be a downer, but don't forget that any impact strong enough to deploy the air bag will likely kill or severely injure the dog. I would highly recommend keeping him in the back. This is why parents are required to have the kid's car seat in the rear.

Just sayin'

Here you go. 06 TJ Unlimited. The seat bottom will be about 2 inches lower. These are on risers.

My ex-girlfriend's dog would ride in the back of my LJ and it weight 100lbs. No problems.

I forgot to add, if your dog gets injuried because it was not secured you can be cited for animal abuse.

I don't have anything fancy like that I just use a harness with carabiners and secured it to the rear seat bracket...basically the same thing though. It's pretty safe and I always drive extra cautious when he's with me.

It drives me crazy when I see a dog on the drivers lap........ I treat my dog as good as I treat any of my kids. Maybe better since they are all adults, if you ask them. LOL
