How to recline Back Seat
 
Not sure what jeep designers had in their mind to design the back seat that cannot be reclined easily. I purchased a new Jeep Wrangler 2012 last on 01/21/12. Any tips on how to recline the back seat will be greatly appreciated.

Very uncomfortable back seats. http://www.wranglerforum.com/images/icons/icon9.gif

I don't give a hoot about the rear. I am driving :punk:

Is this a JKU?

There is a mod that tilts the seat a bit. Makes it more comfy I believe .

Some folks have used washers, but I like the way j_westy handled it.

I have this on my mod list usually just my husky rides back there but last week my son did and mentioned it :rolleyes:

That's a great idea from Westy.

I used the washer and haven't had any problem. I wrapped mine in electrical tape to help hold in place. My kids act like a trampoline is in the back seat and not given me any problems.

Yeah, it is on my list as well. Just need to find a metal shop to cut the pieces. Don't have anything myself that can cut metal that thick.:nonono:

Like 4fit said, wouldn't stacking a few washers work just as well??

Possibly not as elegant as something like ...

If your not in a hurry. Ie: end of July. I am making them for myself. I can cut and still them per his specs and send them off to you. Or if you wish if you have the metal I can cut them. Just need you to ship to me. 19438.

Dedo-man 06-10-2014 10:01 PM

I would be in for that. Would love more detailed pics for exact placement. Would like a clean mod. For the seats *

Do you have the metal yet? If so just check to see what shipping would be.
I'll get a price for what the metal would cost. Not looking to make anything so if a few people would want it I can't imagine it would be more then a few dollars.

JKURubicon 06-12-2014 06:18 AM

I am down with it

dsrinivasan001 06-12-2014 01:53 PM

Count me in, Emptybrass! I'd like a set.

Emptybrass 06-12-2014 02:09 PM

Ok just got off the phone with local metal supply. 12' of t6061 aluminum is $28. Figure I can do 6 kits minus 1 for me so that leaves 5. I think they will all fit is a usps flat rate box for $5. I will check on ups pricing as well. so with shipping and the cost of the aluminum your looking at $10 each. If we can get 5 (or groups of 6) then it's a go.

4 pieces 2.5"
3 pieces 4"
All in bare metal.

One more for me too. 21212 zip you better make 10 sets. This will take off and you'll end up with $$$

Y-Guy 06-12-2014 06:40 PM

I'd sure appreciate getting in on this, I've looked at the washers but just doesn't look sharp. I'm game. 99336 for me just let me know where or how to send money!

ChiefDan 06-12-2014 06:40 PM

Emptybrass 06-12-2014 07:04 PM

Ok seems like the first 5 are taken and the next 4 of 6. Again I'm not making anything on this. I know there are (but haven't read) the forum rules. Just want to help some fellow jeepers. Mods if this is against the rules let me know.

Emptybrass 06-12-2014 07:34 PM

I will go tomorrow and pick up the flat stock. I will cut 1 set first to make sure the measurements are correct. ( I'm sure they are but don't want to send them out not being 100% sure) once all are ready to be shipped I'll contact all of you as posted.


Didn't mean to hijack your thread. I guess start my own.
