Whitty banter

Just a thread for various BS. Who is looking forward to trips, builds, or other various silliness. I am doing a set of front coilovers soon, also gearing and 40s

Anyone know of anything that has been made for car seats for jeeps that don't use the rear seat?

Think you'd need to make something Brian. Can't imagine it would be all that difficult.

I'm trying to translate what you're asking here. Are you looking for additional seating? or a bracket to put your own custom seat in?
Teraflex makes a seat bracket that will accept most aftermarket seats like Mastercraft. "Little Passengers" makes stock like additional seating to include single jump seats if that's what you are looking for.

Totally looking for a bracket. Didn't know treadle made a bracket. I'll be looking at that.

I have a rear seat, Brian, that you can have. Then you can move the car seat back and forth between the Audi and the Jeep.

yeah, those brackets and even the little passengers seats are for JK's...

Limited choices for TJ's it would seem.

I've got a rear seat and the brackets still, didn't throw them away when i took them out. However, that's going to be a huge pain in the ass to deal with. Was hoping to find a bracket system that would accept car seats of some kind... may not exist.

I am looking at doing a possible front end swap on my 04 Cj. Anyone have any input? I don't know a whole lot about jeeps. About what's the cost and can I do the front and back at seperate times or does it have to be done all at once? Thanx everyone in advance

If you mean that you're thinking of axle swaps you can do them separately but I would suggest doing the rear first. Cost can vary anywhere from two to four grand per axle depending on what you do.

i just find it amazing that there are companies like spiderwebshade that make a product only for Jeeps but there isn't one for some form of child seat conversion etc.

Unfortunately it is all about liabilities
This is America where everyone is afraid to get sued

There is a conversion available, it's called the JKU.

I mean honestly Brian you're probably going to have to design it yourself and then sign a waiver form from some welder or somewhere to weld it up for you
That's what it's come down to for that kind of thing
Or learn how to weld and do it yourself;-)

All bullshiting aside Brian, there is the liability issue as Chad has pointed out. But what I'm hearing is you are quite willing to risk your child's life because you don't want to put your effing back seat back in. If that is the case then you can take your freaking self absorbed life and stay as far away from me as is humanly possible because I want nothing more to do with you.

you're taunts won't work with me Senior Ed.

It's more that I don't see how the hell a car seat will EVER fit coming in and out of the back seat. I don't give two shits what's in the back of the jeep, it's had a seat there before. I was hoping that there was something that would allow me to load the car seat in threw the rear cause that's actually plausible.

These are not taunts you jerk. If you play with your passenger seat a little bit, when you release the backrest the entire seat flips forward and a bull mastiff could wander in and out without touching anything. That is specifically for ingress and egress. I think you can manage a car seat...

i swear the front seats don't do that. I'll check in the morning, the movement range on the seats with the covers is seriously garbage. Never seen the whole seat move.

Well it should and if it doesn't there is something wrong. In which case you need to get up here next Monday so we can sort it out. I will be out of town for a couple of weeks after Jeeptober so that's the only chance we have before the bundle of joy arrives.
