Thanks. Also, can you tell me what gauge (thickness) your 4" angle iron is and, how "long" did you cut it to? Another question if possible; where did you look to find the angle iron?

Thanks again! Your mod was brilliant...I'm looking forward to giving it a try myself.

Thanks for coming up with this mod. I am new to the Jeep community and was looking to do the same thing so I could make room for a dog crate. Now that you have done all of the thinking, all I need to do is get to work.

Great soultion... Thanks for the step by step instructions... The added idea of using the angles for tie downs is another great idea...

What a great idea! I have two little boys and we get the don't touch me stuff back there, was there any arm rest you could have used? Looks like there my have been room? I can't see in the before pictures the location pin that sits down in the cut out of the angle iron, did you fab those up or reuse them from the new or old seats?

Again nice job!

Very nice. I Imagine that a center seat out of a minivan would work too. The one in my old Venture had cup holders molded into the back even. Plus, they look more finished without the exposed foam padding.

Thanks ! I looked at many different small bucket seats and these were the first ones I found that would fit with 2 side by side. I'm sure there are others and would like to here from others that have done this with different seats. I did not find any seats that had arm rests...

Good luck and lets see some pic's of what others have done !

i have been thinking about doing this but only putting one folding seat so i can put a security box, sub woofer box and air tank on one side, is the leg room in the back any worse or better and hows the height of the seats when you go to look out the rear window?

Definitely one of the most practical mods I've seen. I'd love to do something similar to my 2dr JK...has anyone seen it done?

The leg room is better IMHO, because the seat bottom is a little higher. I have no problem seeing over the seat backs, when no one is sitting in the seats the backs are folded down. And it gives me a perfect view of my spare tire
