seats do not fold all the way to the dash

I am 6-3 and although I love the new leg room I get with the V-6 instead of the old inline, it is impossible for me to get into the back of my 2-dr through the doors since the seats no longer tilt forward like they did in the previous models.

Then since the tail gate is so short you get to deal with those wonderful zippers on the soft top back window to fully access the back.

With that said I still Love my Jeep!!

x2... As soon as Woogie gets old enough to ditch the car seat, my rear seat is gone!

I am 6'3" also, however I have no plans to ever even attempt to enter the back seat. That's someone else's problem, I'm the driver.

Back seat has been out of mine for almost a year. And like others said.....if I am getting in the back, there is something wrong.....

Caveat emptor ... all of the test reports were glowing, the test drive was great, buttttttttt .... to think that I traded in an '03 Rubicon on the new JK WITHOUT even crawling into the rear seat of the 2-door we purchased !

Both front seats articulated on the old TJ with relatively easy access to the rear seat. It is torture to just try to get into the rear seat on the 2-door JK. I can't imagine actually using the seat for transporting anyone older that 10-12 years old (and, then, only if they are small framed). The best option - as others have said - is to simply take the rear JK seat out (there should be a factory delete for the rear seat). Has anyone else noticed the flex in the side doors when you close them from the outside? I don't remember that "tinny" flex in my Rubi TJ and there is zero flex in the doors on my wife's TJ ???
