Passenger Seat adjustment ?

At some point, I'm sure this question has been asked before. I'll apologize for the annoyance of another newbie question ahead of time and hope for an answer.

I have an 83 CJ7 and I would like to get new seats, but before doing that, would like to make the passenger side seat adjustable (front & back). How does one go about this? I figured if I could find the seat frame from another drivers side seat, that it might be the easiest. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated; also any recommends on seat & possible seat frame upgrades?

Thanks much,

The easiest way to accomplish what you want to do would be to remove the slides, track lock and handles from an existing trashed drivers seat and install them on your passenger seat after removing the existing rail. It's not difficult, but would involve about two to four hours of work, total.

Putting sliders under the passenger may make the seat to high.

Re: Passenger Seat adjustment ?

So is taking the entire frame from a drivers seat a bad idea if I did that, would it still make the passenger seat to high? Another question, is there a way to move the passenger seat back without putting in sliders?
