1. I'd anchor it to the same bolts being used to anchor the seat to the floor.
2. Do you have a Full Cage over the rear?

Re: where does rear seat belt attach too?

I may be wrong about this but I thought that all CJs originally came with a rear seat. In that case, there should be some existing holes for the seat belts. Even my 66 CJ5 has the mounting holes for the seat belts in the tub right next to the tailgate and they look stock even though it does not have a rear seat right now.

Re: where does rear seat belt attach too?

when i bought my jeep it didnt have a rear seat or very much of a rear floor for that matter. i put on a fiberglass body and now have no reference to where it goes.

On my tub (86 CJ7) there is one bolt in the middle and one on either side. They're just behind the rear seat, straight under where the seat back is when it's upright in seating position.

Re: where does rear seat belt attach too?

1. May I make a suggestion?
2. The OEM belts would be held in by the OEM bolts that held the back of the seat to the floor.
3. That in mind,
4. Mount the seat on the floor,
5. Mark the center of the mounting holes on the floor
6. Drill a 1/16" hole down through the floor.
7. Remove the seat.
8. Cut a peice of 3/16"X3"X3' plate,
9. Locate it under the rear flooring, under where the rear of the seat would mount.
10. Mark through the holes in the flooring onto the plate.
11. Remove the plate.
12. Drill the marks on the plate to 3/8" holes.
13. Weld 3/8" nuts to the underside of the plate.
14. Remount the plate, using bolts throug the floor.
15. Drill 6 1/8" mounting holes through the plate and into (not through) the flooring.
16. Remove the plate, prep, prime, and paint the plate
17. Mount the plate to the underside of the flooring using pop rivets.
18. Repeat the above for the front mounts.
19. Now the seat can be easily removed,
21. The mounts are firm, and won't punch through in an accident.

Re: where does rear seat belt attach too?

Itís been a long time since Iíve had it installed, but as I remember on my í80 OEM original, there were three seatbelt bolts across the rear lower rail of the seat on the vertical section. The seatbelts connected to the seat and the seat bolted to the floor.

I think what it amounts to is, if it's the fold-and-tumble seat then the belts mount to the floor, and if it's the fixed seat then the belts mount to the seat (where it mounts to the floor).
