Seat weights

I've looked what feels like everywhere for an answer to this and the only definitive one I've found was for a JK...

I'm going to be bedlining my dear lil TJ and because I live in an apartment building will have to lug my seats inside while I work on this. So I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what the rear seat weighs, and what the front ones weigh?

I'd just like to know whether I can get them up three flights of stairs myself. I'm little, but pretty strong and also stubborn as an ox, so I've hefted a lot of big, heavy packages up the stairs on my own but even I have my limits

Not sure how much they weigh but it's not a lot. I just had all of mine out to bedline my tub. I you would need 2 people to carry the rear seat especially and maybe the front seats. It's not that the seats are heavy it's that they are awkward to carry.

I just did my bedliner, and didn't have any issues moving them around and I'm not a big guy. I think the back is heaviest, and easy to pop out to check if it's too heavy to lug around. The fronts are a little awkward, mainly just getting them back in without scratching your new liner of your doing it alone. Is guess the weight is about 50# each?

Each front is about 30-35 pounds the rear maybe pushing 40 lbs.

I lug my rear up a few sets of stairs when I take it out by myself. Its more awkward than anything

Awesome, thanks guys. I already have my front seat unbolted but haven't picked it up outright so its been hard to gauge the weight. I guess I'll give it a shot and if all else fails drag a friend over in the next couple days to help me with them. Generally the awkwardness and my short armspan defeat me before weight does.

For the fronts, it's pretty easy to flip them upside down and let your back support some of the weight. If I'm carrying the back seat more than a few feet, I leave it folded and also swing it over my head.
