I took mine out about 2 weeks ago and it's still sitting in the family room. I don't want to store it in the garage or shed because I live in the country and have found rodents in upholstered items left outside before, so it'll probably get moved to a back bedroom or maybe stuffed into a closet.
I pulled the rear set out of my wife's Jeep and wrapped it in a couple garbage bags and they tied it up with some string and put it in the rafters of the garage. Yea it's heavy but once you get one end up, the rest is easy. 6' step ladder helps.
'04 TJ rear seat came out six months after I got the Jeep new in '04...recently divorced at the time so it was my "extra" seating in the living room......only time it was in the TJ until last spring was when I moved.....the last time I moved I put it on a shelf in the garage inside of garbage bags...it sat there for a couple years and finally gave it to a guy at work who needed a back seat for his TJ and their new baby....last spring. It seems that you either need a backseat or you pretty much never do...IMO
yep just stick it in a garbage bag, tie the bag off, and place it on the top shelf, its super light weight so you have lots of ways to store it, just keep it dry. my rear seat was out of my TJ 14 nanoseconds after I pulled the Jeep into my garage after buying it and has not been re-installed since.........that's Big Fat Lab territory back there.
