I've not installed a seat like that, but I need to replace the rear seat in my 81 CJ-7. I'd like to have one similar to the stock one, which comes out,seatbelts and all, with just 5 bolts. But I don't think they make them; everythings flips up. What are the advantages of a fender mount set-up?
I remember seeing a site where a guy installed 2 jump seats from a Toyota Landcrusier FJ-40 on his fender wells. I cant find the URL right now, but if i do i will send it over. They "LOOK" really cool facing each other but i would never wanna sit like that in a Jeep.
I'd like to do the same in the back of my Scrambler. The old M38's, and maybe some others, had a nifty fold up rear seat that didn't take up much space and is wider than the Landcruiser seats. I'd like to find either at a good price.
Scott. I might sell mine. I've been toying with different seating ides for the Scrambler and I think I've settled on mounting the spare to the factory rollbar mounting location and putting a bucket seat next to that for my son, then mounting a fold-n-tumble rear seat in the back for the occasions that I have extra passengers...the rest of the time it will be removed.
Actually, I scrapped that project before I got around to working out the mounting...they're just sitting on the fenderwells for measuring in that picture. I'm doing a Scrambler now instead and will probably use a fold-n-tumble all the way in the back for when I have extra passengers and a single bucket behind the passenger side seat for my son.
