Fold and Tumble rear seat..

Hello,
I put a 90 tub on my 93 yj. I was putting in the rear seat and the side brackets aren't lining up right. The three feet on the bottom of the seat are sitting directly on the tub floor, but a couple inches aft of those are three torx bolts going down into the tub. It looks like the feet should sit on the torx heads but it's been so long since I've had my original tub, I don't remember how it looked. Does anyone know if the rear seat was changed during the yj run? Would someone please take a look at their seat and tell me if its sitting on the torx bolts?
Thank you!

Could the 3 Torx bolts be for the rear seat belts? I don't run a rear seat but I seem to remember that 1987 through when Jeep went to a "family" roll bar there are no provisions for a shoulder belt, only lap belts.

The feet should be adjustable. Pull the rubber bumpers off and you should find a Phillips head to turn and adjust the seat height. That may help it fit.

Good Luck, L.M.

That is correct.
I removed the carpeting years ago and the three marks on the floor are a couple of inches short of the torx bolts.

Thank you for the quick replies! I forgot about seat belts I've already tried adjusting the seat legs but didn't have any luck. I'll try loosening everything up, aligning and tightening it again. It's close but I wanted to make sure I'm working with matching equipment before I messed with it too much
I've also added the family style roll bar and picked up some backing plates to put three point belts back in but I'm not that far along yet.
Thank you again.

So, I've loosened everything up and with the rear seat and brackets sitting correctly in place, the three feet fully extended on the bottom of the seat are an inch from reaching the floor. I can move the brackets down or maybe extend the feet but I'm curious as to what is different. The bottom bracket bolts on the side of the tub are 2.75" from the floor. Would someone with a '92 or newer yj please take a measurement to see if they've changed?
Thank you!

Can you post a picture? When you put your seat in, is it being put on Right side pushed to left on the bracket pins? I had a similar problem and realized I had the brackets installed wrong, which is putting in seat left slid to right. You might try turning your brackets around. Just a thought...

I tried putting a 1990 rear seat in my 1995 and there was no way it was going to work unless I changed the brackets and drilled new holes. So I stuck with the ratty 95 seat.
