Difference with Rear seats
 
Hey everyone, im curious if anyone know the difference between the rear seat in a 97-02 TJ and the 03-06 TJ, because i wanted to get the split rear folding seat bench, and they all say for 97-02...im sure its just a width issue, but i wanna know if the mounting points are different or anything else. Thanks

I have an '00 and an '03... the only difference I can find is that the '03 seat removes easily, just flip a few levers and pull it out, the '00 only flips forward (*%#**@&%!!). Unless there's a trick I couldn't figgur out. So, OffRDer, it must be incompatible based on the mounting hardware. I'll be lurking to see who says otherwise, as I would like to know as well.

We sell a couple of rear seats that say they fit 97-06, so I'd guess the differences aren't huge. Our customer service people might now exactly what the differences are. They spend a lot of time on details like that. 800-845-3567.

Geoff, can you find out if you sell a rear seat that will fit a 97 that has the car seat hook ups?

I had no idea, so I asked Dustin in customer service, and he's not 100% positive what the car seat hookups are. He wanted me to tell you that all our rear seats use the original seat belts.

You can always send him a photo of what the car seat hook ups look like and he'll give you a better answer. csbestop@bestop.com

Sorry for being vague - sometimes it's hard to picture all the little variations in all the vehicles. Also, I think Dustin hears "baby seat" and some little part of him just shuts down. :)

My 2K TJ had pins in the seat that slid into the clips in the tub.

My 06 has a completely different setup as described in post 2.

I've never tried it, but I don't believe my 00 seats would fit in the 06 unless I also took the hardware out of the tub to go along with it.

I have an 00 TJ Sahara, the rear seat flips up, then when you want to remove it you just unclip one of the hair-pin clips on either side. The seat then just slides out.

03 thru 06 has different mounting hardware
