Move the rear seat to a trailer, or mount it on the
front hitch and tell 'em to duck down so you can see...

RaysJK I agree with 50 Something, first thing I did when I got my 07 was to remove the back seat. No my 90 pound Lab (hiking partner) has his own space and can stay out of mine. I do put it back in when the kids want to ride. But for trips and large groups it is the 2010 Burb.

Exactly. My rear seat is in the garage. If you want to carry passengers comfortably, get the 4 door Jeep.

I think you pretty much just described why Jeep designed a 4-door model Wrangler.

Blackbelly There's a lot more room in the back seat of the JK than there was in the CJ. I've hauled adults 6'1" and taller in both.

Megafriday In response to the OP, I'm not convinced crawling in under the back window would be an improvement to climbing in through the door.

Not sure what happend to yours, but the very 1st mod I did for free was get rid of that back seat and there were no belts attached to it on either side?

Sort of strange how your likes and dislikes get after 26 years. When I got my CJ-7 at the age of 24 I could not wait to get a back seat. However with young ones it's a must. Went to a junk yard and got one for $95.00. The old water proof seats when you did'nt have to get aftermarket covers.

Enough about that, but at the age of 50 who needs a back seat. I need the space for much better things...

redskinswin I had 4 guys (myself included) who are all between 5'11 and 6'2. We were all very comfortable. Of course I was driving. But they did not have any complaints.

thenorsepole I say just ditch the rear seat all-together and bungee your passengers across the top of roll bars and be done with it (feet toward the front of course). My dog is left with plenty of room in the cargo area that way.

CoreyZ I tried sitting in the back and felt like my knees were in my chest... but it was fine for my sister in law who is barely over 5'

I on the other hand am 6'3"

They had a well that the seat folded into, when the seat was up, the legs and feet could use the well space. Otherwise as lee indy pointed out, there's no place for your feet except straight out. Uncomfortable and what limited cargo space there was is now occupied by legs and feet..

kramer2k Why wouldn't an adult sit in the back? While riding around last weekend in my parent's 99 TJ, my mom and wife sat in the back while my dad and I rode in the front. We're short people, but I think there is ample room and climbing in isn't a big feat if you're all but completely crippled IMO.
