In my last 2 Wranglers (1997 & 2005) the back seat folded all the way up against the front seats. I apparently haven't done it much in this Jeep. I am finding that it won't fold up all the way, straight up and down. It acts like there is something in the way. Is this the case of does it just not fold up that far? Makes less room in the back for storage. Thanks.

Mine folds up against the back of the seats pretty nicely I believe in my '07. There is definitely more room just taking the seat out though.

There are double floor brackets toward the front of the rear seat that engage with the double catches on the seat. If the catches on the seat are oriented incorrectly when reinstalling the seat, only one of 2 will engage, which will prevent the seat from being positioned properly when upright. I made this mistake the first time I removed the rear seat, but found out by close examination of the mechanics.

I have never taken the seat out and wouldn't know how. I purchased the Jeep used, so maybe they did it incorrectly...

Do you have 2dr or 4dr? There are major differences between them in how the rear seats operate.

Can you post a picture of your rear seat folded up as far as it goes?
