fitting TJ seats in a YJ

I got a good deal on some TJ seats and I want to fit them into my 89 YJ. I searched the forum and the question has been asked before but nobody has come up with an answer. I know people have done it and I am wondering what the best way to do it would be. I thought about welding a thin plate on top of the yj seat frame and drilling holes in the plate to bolt the tj seat down, but I would like to keep the seat frames from the tj because they are nicer than the yj frames. Has anybody got any ideas or pictures of anybody doing this? Thanks, Andy

Does anybody have any pictures of what a tj floorboard looks like so I can see how the tj frame is supposed to mount?

Re: fitting TJ seats in a YJ

Just at looking at the TJ bracket you will see that the floor of the TJ tub is completely different than a YJ.

I welded a flat bar across the bottom of the TJ seat and then welded it to the YJ seat frame.

The TJ seats will sit a lot higher than your old YJ's one.

Yeah, I know they will sit higher on the YJ frame. Thats why I wanted to figure out how to use the TJ frame. Do you have any pictures of how yours turned out? Thanks, Andy
