JKU 3rd row seat

Has anyone used the TeraFlex brackets to install a 2dr JK rear seat in a JKU? The idea is interesting but wondered how useful and well it worked in the execution and day to day use. Pics?

I don't have pics, but there are several threads on it that have great pictures.
I use it when family comes in town and it also has worked well with our J30 (camper top) as we sit in that seat at night before climbing up. It is fine for kids and I usually sit back there when family is in town. I wouldn't want to go long distance but around town works and saves driving two cars. Facing forward is a little better leg room wise than backwards but easier to load up from back. It does use up all you cargo space.

I added additional roll bar in back as there is little coverage other wise and you need seatbelts as well.
I am sure some will chime in about the frame or rear impact. The frame strength is same from behind driver's box back. For rear impact you have about as much room as you would in a 2 door and it looks about the same room seat to door as a 4runner with 3rd row seats from what I saw of my friends.

I sort of used the Teraflex brackets. I modified them to lift them higher up to allow for a drawer. They are pretty simple but some of the bolts are in tough locations. The thread is in my signature.

07 JKU, 14 bolt rear/ Teraflex 60 front, Tera Long Arm, King Coilovers, 40" MT/R-Ks, Antirock etc. 430HP LS3 engine swap. Cage and 14 bolt swap thread-
