Possible to find rear seat belt buckles?

Guys I have looked everywhere online, but maybe I am searching for the wrong thing. Are the rear seat belt buckles on a 95 YJ connected as a single unit? I can only find the belt with buckle sold, but not buckles alone. Anybody know some good places to check? Not a lot of junkyards around here either.

I have never seen buckles sold without the belts attached, probably because of some NTSA rules or something about the materials and stitching used on them.

I was thinking along the same lines, but I see many buckles for the front seats. Anyone here have a 95 YJ? Is it a dual buckle?

i would look around some more. belts from a junk yard could have hidden problems. dry rot and frayed threads in the stiching are two problems not to mention that they might have deterioration due to being in use during an accident.
the two center belts are connected by a single bolt and the two outers would have one bolt each if they are floor mounted.

As for junked seat belts, look them over really well. Look for dates. Just like in a store.

Yeah if I wanted lap belts, there would be many options. My kids will be back there and I would not feel they would be safe without a 3 point strap. If they were in car seats still, I would prefer a lap belt.

When you say buckle do you mean the latch or the striker? If you mean the latch (the center piece with the button release) then they are separate units that are merely connected to the same bolt.

I'd be willing to bet that you could buy these and just use the latch portions to replace your problem piece. I'd email/chat with Quadratec to see if the part will mate with the stock strikers of your '95.
