Rubicon_Jim I'm sure Bill is 100% correct. Two doors mount to the inner post frame while the 4 doors mount to the seat. Mine is a 12 JKUR and its on the seat. Two friends of mine have '11 MY 2drs and they are mounted to the inner frame post.

SilverSport I think Bill may be on to something here; my 4 door has the seat belt attached to the seat.

DannyV Hell, I thought we couldn't install a security box because of all the electric wiring for features we don't have!

I think so. That's why you can't install a Tuffy or Bestop locking security box under a slide and tilt driver's seat.... because of the slide and tilt mechanism.

Except...

2-doors have slide and tilt (or whatever they're called) front seats and 4-doors don't. Maybe that's it. 2-door vs 4-door?

Can't attach set belts to a seat that tilts forward.....


BINGO... that's it. 2-door vs. 4-door.

All the posters here with seat belt not bolted to the seat have 2-doors, those with it bolted to seat have 4-doors...
A-HA! Maybe that is it. Mine is a 2-door with the slide tilt mechanism. Slide and tilt wouldn't work well with the belt in the way every time it kicked forward. Except there is no slide and tilt on the driver's side... is there?

I knew we were both pre september, and tan if I recall. I assume the seats had the mount already, why take them off. maybe a vendor change? Or fearful, a safety issue

dwindeck Probably a anchor point for right hand drive models.
07-05-2012 05:27 PM
DannyV I played with the seat height adjuster today and found that the bracket never ducks out of view at either extent. I moved the fabric to cover it and then worked the seat to both extremes again. The fabric actually bunches a bit at the lowest point, like the bracket is meant to be outside it. This thing is really strange.
07-05-2012 05:00 PM
JB71 Mine also has the empty bracket on the seat as my anchor point is down on the floor as well.

2012 Sport 2 door 12-11 build date.

WXman Does this have anything to do with whether or not you've got the optional "seat mounted airbags"?

ESP yay seatbelts.
07-04-2012 10:28 PM
DannyV I haven't messed around with the seat height. Maybe my seat is way up? I will screw around with the seat hight tomorrow and see what happens.
07-04-2012 04:20 PM
spankinkopita I wonder if the floor mounted seat belt is for more aggressive off roading
07-04-2012 03:43 PM
jpstoner Mine looks just like Danny's except my seat is apparently at its lowest and is mostly covered. I raised it all the way up and it looked EXACTLY like Danny's. I didn't even realize I could adjust the seat height...

Not sure what the threaded hole is for.
07-03-2012 10:23 AM
spankinkopita Weird if it was a mid model change, but whatever, maybe the rubi didn't trust the seat mount?
That is also where my passenger seat belt is mounted

My seat belt anchors inside the roll bar post - behind the seat. It may just be the old anchor point??

Well shoot. I apologize for my earlier comment. I just ASSUMED that Jeep would engineer the seatbelt attachment points the same on all 2012 JKs. My 2012 JKR with height adjustable seat has the anchor point located on the floor almost directly underneath the seatbelt retractor mounted on the A pillar.

3TimeOwner That is where my seat belt is anchored on a 2012 Rubi
07-03-2012 08:19 AM
Beastmaster They must have changed where they mount the seat belts on some models. That is where my seat bely attaches as well.

Braveheart12JK It has to do with the raising the seat up feature for the driver's seat. Not sure why there is that threaded hole, but that's the reason some can see it and some can not cause its covered to different degrees. Crank your seat up and watch that goofy threaded hole appear. Lol
07-03-2012 12:10 AM
iluvshoes Mine is mostly covered by fabric. I wonder if it has anything to do with the back rest lever. I said that because if you look the lever on the driver seat is different from the one on the passenger seat.
