what's everyone doing with rear seats.

What are guys doing with the 2 door rear seats when you take them out I remove and replace my seat often and I'm curious how other people store them.

Mine is wrapped in plastic and stored in my pole barn...
Debating whether to put it back in for the dogs, as I do not haul too many passengers. I don't haul much as you can figure out why. With the seat in place, at least the groceries don't come up to the front when I need to stop abruptly.

Took mine out the day after I got it and it's in the basement. I built a security deck but it's removable in case I want to use the rear seat. Doubt I'll ever put it in but won't ever sell it either.

I've been thinking of building a bench that it can latch on to and store a couple action packers underneath it. Maybe even put some casters on it so I can move it around. It would make it a functional bench for the garage.

Be careful, I had my YJ's seat wrapped in plastic and the damn mice still got into it. I thought it would be okay considering we had about a dozen barn cats.

I just throw a bed sheet with the elastic corners over it.

I think it's the most awkward thing on this planet to carry though.

Mine's been out since day 1 but with a baby on the way it's going back in.

Got the front and rear out of my JKU and the rear bench out of my wife's 2 door.

Why waste money on new furniture for the Family Room, when when we already have a nice set?

My 2 door rear seat is folded with 2 overlapping plastic garbage bags slipped over it from both ends, sitting on a shelf in my shed.

I've been thinking about welding up a base that it will latch onto for extra porch furniture - haven't gotten around to that yet.

Mine is my garage couch... No one ever wants to sit in the back of a 2 door anyways. So might as well have the extra room.
