lindel Early TJ rear seats don't lock in place, you have to strap them up (unless you like mashed groceries).

Ebxgsxr the seat style changed in 03 (i believe), but fold & tumble rear seats started with YJ's (not sure of the specific year.)

jp2611 My '94 YJ had a fold tumble rear set and it came out in less than a minute same as the the JK yeah it is "easier" but heavier....or maybe I am just that much older??

Jacqui There are aftermarket seats (front and rear) that are fixed (non-folding). Perhaps your friend had one installed in their TJ.

zippinbye Thanks guys - guess I was under the wrong impression. I thought my buddies early TJ (98?) had a fixed frame that simply bolted to the floor with no folding feature.

Jacqui From my understanding, the rear seat is removable in all TJ's... Are you referring to the fold and tumble seat where all you need to do is squeeze a bar and it pops right out? Here's a thread discussing rear seat removal in a TJ, with both versions (one with pins, one with the squeeze bar).

Jaxon1023 Both my YJ and TJ have them

1st Year For Folding Rear Seat

Just wondering when the fold-forward rear seat became available in the TJ? I haven't found mention of it anywhere, and I forgot to note the years of rigs that I saw it in. Definitely by 2006, but I assume probably earlier. Also, for total removal, is the folding seat any more or less difficult than the hard bolt-in seat?
