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.

Just My .02

Good Luck

The reason I would like to have fender mounted flip up seats is that it would provide more cargo area with the seats in the down or the up postion.

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.

Keep on Jeepin'

4est,
Are you talking about a side facing rear seat or just the mounting point?

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.

I would hope that you wouldn't sit like that since you'd be driving /wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif

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.
