2 Door Rear Seat Entry

Anyone know of a kit that modifies the front passenger seat brackets to allow easier entry for rear passengers? I have an 09 2 door and would really like to hang on to it. (Baby on the way)

GO THE EXTRA MILE, IT'S NEVER CROWDED THERE.

You may try a seat frame for a 2011. My seats fold and tumble just like my tj's did.

I have a baby on the way as well and would like easier access to the back seats so curious as well.

I didn't know the '11 front passenger seat folded and tumbled, that might be a good idea.

Hmm so this may become my side business. I can manufacture and sell 2011 brackets for you guys. Give me some 2009 seat dimensions and i'll make some up. I have a 2011 so I can copy off of that!! Of course the origional posters and people who give dimesions will get free test brackets! Have welder-will fabricate!

Just pull the release like your folding the back forward then push the whole seat up and forward.

The front 2 bolts are 11"s apart. The bolts are 17 1/2"s apart front to rear.

It really only gives you another 3"s or so now that I look at it. The passenger seat may go further because the lack of steering wheel, but mine is broken and doesn't flip at all so I can't say for sure.

Just measured my 09 2 door and the bolts were about 11.5" and 22.5"s apart. Seems like the brackets are totally different if we measured the same bolts.

Yeah, I thought there was something I missed that made it fold some other way, 'cause there's still barely room to get stuff in. Best way is with the top off... just climb up, over and in...

Yea I don't ever use it as I have no back seat. My new seats are fixed back so it won't work anyways.

If anyone figures out how to make it work and there is anyone close to Delaware that wants one we could probably work something out.

No problem, open the garage door and go over to the corner and sit down.
