When I scout places to go fishing I would like to be able to throw in a line and sit on my hood, but they are easily dented. May sound a little ridiculous, but those little things like this are what make me love wranglers. Jk unlimited stock hood
A folding chair is 10 bucks. Modding your hood or buying a new one will be slightly more than that plus your just going to scratch the piss out of the hood sitting on it. I be more inclined to sit on the front bumper (if you are still stock it looks fairly deep in the center). If you have an aftermarket front bumper a smart guy with a welder could easily fab up a small fold out stool.
?? Grizzstang got the answer.....I got 7 grandkids, and I would be furious if I caught them climbing around my Jeep, especially on the hood.....You got the right idea, get thru the woods, check out some fishing holes, but throw a cheep chair in the back of the rig, the ones with a beer holder in it!...You'll scratch the crap out of the hood sitting on it, besides creasing it while casting and moving around. Find a nice spot in the middle of nowhere, grab your cheap chair, and relax....Or do what I do, and wade in the water!
Mount a receiver hitch on the front and get a chair mounted for it. or you could just get a hunting shop to make a front bumper with two seats and a cooler for you to sit on. They are actually kind of fun.
I used 2 pieces of 1x1 angle iron run along the factory hood support on the inside and pop riveted from the top. I crawl all over my jeep and put my doors and jacks and tools and whatever else up there so that was my solution. This is on a yj though so idk how the jk hoods are setup or would hold up to this solution.
