1) Had been done many times. Search and you shall see.

2) I'm sure its been done somewhere but I've never seen it. Not sure how much you would like that since there is a big hump under the back seat and mounting buckets back there will make them almost hit the ceiling without some fab work.

Nice thought

I had been pondering this idea also. Before i forget, yes I put Herculiner over my entire floor, yes it sucks after it heats up and starts to peel. After several days of prep work, that really pissed me off. Getting like Rhino or line X sprayed in would be the best. If you designed the rear buckets to not have a bracket that is as long as a stock type, you could have the back of the seat rest on the hump and utilize it's height to mount the seat. Wouldn't it be damn cool though?

"mobbing"? what planet are you from? why not just do a 2 seater? build a storage bin where the seats used to be. there is a thread on here if you do a search on back seats. oh and im gonna spray dupla-color on the floors either thiss weekend or next so i will post pics when done.

I actually just saw some pics of the front buckets placed in the back seat area on this site or jeepsunlimited. They were really tight left from right but it looked like he had plenty of head room.

I think it'd be cool.
buckets are easier to stay in when your bouncing round.

dammit, everytime I come on here and talk about jeeps and mods I want one even more. Doesn't anyone have a free jeep for me??? waaaahhh

I know I know. Oh well now that I've vented....

I think the kind of bedliner that's sprayed in profesionally is more costly, but more permanent and heavy duty. I could be wrong tho.

$75 Herc

$75 for a gallon of herc, another $4.99 for Xylol, and some more for extra gloves and anything else that is helpful, like prep materials...VS Line X or Rhino Linings that cost $400 for a regular truck bed, but they do the work and you can have a nice thick 1/8" coating of protection. They do the prep work if you want them to. Although, I'm sure removal of seats, console, etc would be on you. I used the Herc, my vehicle condition dictated a cheap solution. If I had a rust free solid XJ, line XJ would be my choice.
