Jerry Bransford So far as I know, the seat's mounting bolt pattern on the floor is identical within all TJs. I would bet $$$ they would bolt in without issue. Newer seats are indeed lower so you may want to add 1" spacers and use 1" longer Grade 5 (10.9 or 12.9 if they switched to metric as many did in 2003) bolts to mount them with.

InfernoGirl Yes, after reading some other threads, I believe they mount differently.... Sorry!

danthebugman Thanks! I checked youtube. The fact that Mastercraft Seats does a separate 'how-to' video of 97-02 and 03 - 07 leads me to believe there is a difference in the seat design.

KawiTJ not that this is much help without a link, but i did see a video on youtube about swapping the older seats for 03 and up seats...

InfernoGirl I would assume so, but like I said, I really don't know. Someone with more knowledge than I will chime in soon, I'm sure. I just wanted to make sure you knew they were lower...

danthebugman Actually, a lower seat wouldn't be too bad. (I know my dog would appreciate it!)
I am assuming I would just mount the seats to my existing hardware. Thanks for the response!

InfernoGirl I think they'll fit, but I'll let someone more experienced verify that. They will be lower to the floor than your current seats.... Not a big deal if you're tall, or even a bonus if you're really tall, but kind of a pain if you're vertically challenged (like me!)

06 Rubicon seats for 02 Wrangler SE?

The seats on my recently purchased 02 are shot. Just saw an interesting listing on craigslist for a pair of 06 Rubicon seats. Listing says they should fit all TJs but I figured I would take advantage of the forum's experienced members and get a confirmation on that.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!
