Anybody remove the rear seats in their unlimited? mostly curious what they weigh etc.
I got it out just with a socket and wrench. A lot of grunting and painful positions. Make sure to put some anti-seize when reinstalling....
what did you use for a template? I like this idea.It's steel...strong enough to stand on but very easy for one person to lift. I didn't weigh it, but doubt if it weighs over 20 pounds. As for removing the seat bracket bolts, I used a cordless DeWalt impact wrench....piece o' cake.
That's why I wanted to remove them. So I could put anti seize on them in case I ever needed to get them out for a reason. The space around the bolts under the rear of the seats is very limited. Don't see how you could get an impact on them unless it was like 3/8" drive inline design.I got it out just with a socket and wrench. A lot of grunting and painful positions.

I took mine out. Bolts are lock-tighted so you need a big 18mm wrench and a lot of grunt to loosen the ones under the seats. Most can be accessed by an impact wrench which easily breaks them loose. You can squirt w2 or some other lubricant from underneath. Not a 15 minute job, but opens up a lot of space for dogs or cargo.
My friend that built it measured everything...then cut it on his plasma cutter. It's one piece except for the doors and the front cross-brace. He was talking about redesigning it so the sides were seperate pieces, making the unit flat so it could be shipped easier. It uses 3 existing bolts at the back/top and one bolt on each side panel through holes drilled in the floor of the jeep.what did you use for a template? I like this idea.
Lol sure this, I did, but my hands were covered in blood. For it was the will of knowing my dogs would be happily riding with me
Here you go!Moabite, I actually saw this post on another site (expedition portal) and then created a post on this forum trying to find where I could get this piece. Of course a kind member led me to your posting here so I am hoping your friend is selling this. Any info would be great, thank you!
I'd actually be looking for something that could also cover the rear dip compartment closest to the tailgate up to the edge of the trim.. Basically the idea is to create a completely flat surface with the hidden compartments accessible with the hinged doors that you have made in yours. Then I'm going to cover it in bedliner and have some sort of locking mechanism put on them.
I think they're more than that here's a quote" This is perfect for dog owners, campers who sleep in the back after a day of wheeling or anyone who doesn't like the unfinished look when the seats are down."those are a good idea but they look like just a couple pieces of carpet.
