Turning The Back Seat Around

Since the back seat is removable, has anyone pulled it then turned it around, & putting it back into the Jeep?

I'm at the drive-in right now.
I was thinking how cool it would be to pull in backwards, then just sit down on the "reversed" back seat and watch the shows.

The rear seat wouldn't have to be bolted down to the floor, because you're not driving.

Just an idea.

I drive without my rear seat bolted to anything and it works just fine. The lower part of the seat might bump into the wheel wells, but if you can get it past that I see no limits to your idea.

You'd also have to relocate the seat belts if you're talking more than just going offroad with the seat in backwards. That would require a bit more effort, but I totally think this could be a great idea if done properly.

Was also thinkin bout this to sit on the river bank and fish , however the with the soft top folded down I think it would be in the way and taking the hard top on and off everytime is not very logical , I would think the seats belts could just stretch the opposite way but maybe not

I use this for fishing all the time. I just prop it against the back of the front seats and sit down. I dont use it this way for passengers on road or off. If you have the soft top folded down, you can flip it all up towards the front as far as it goes and make yourself an awning. Really wish I had a pic of it, that is hard to describe

That's what I was thinkin it would just sit against the back of the front seats how hard is it to turn around and put back to normal for passengers ?

Its not attached to anything when its turned around, so just pick it up and install like normal. You'll have to "unlock" the seat back, but thats one little lever, no biggie.
