Suggestion for passenger seat to allow maximum entry?
 
Hello,
My passenger seat is not working anymore. The mechanism to make it go forward isn't. My son is having to climb in through the middle console0---- aarrgghh for him. Can anyone suggest a good seat or lower that allows the seat to go forward the most. I want him to have plenty of room to get in and out.

Thanks so much
todd

The same thing happened to mine. The dealer can repair it. Mine was done under warranty. They needed to order a new cable and track.

I'm getting ready to drop my jeep off to have my seat looked at for that reason. It won't release either.

I have a 2007 two door, and was wondering if it would be possible to install the newer track system the 2011 model has. The 2011 passenger seat fold/slides upwards as well, much closer to the windshield, making it a lot easier to enter the rear seat. Let me know if anyone has heard that the seats and tracks from the 2007 and 2011 models are compatible, Thanks

Right? They had it on older models as well. I'm tying to research it but don't know what to look for

I need to check out one of the 2011's at the dealer to see how their seat works.

Its cool, it slides forward, and then the seat and seatback disconnect and fold together and upward towards the windshield

Like TJ's? I have an 04 that does that, can't believe they made JK's that don't..

Interesting! Can someone who has a 2011 2 door post a pic of their passenger seat that shows this?
