There should be a paddle handle on the door side of your seat that you lift up and then pull up and forward on the seat. Or underneath there should be a wavy bar thar you do the same thing too.


Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Two of the bolts on drivers side are pulled out from underneath the tub.
The other two can be accessed by just sliding the seat forward/backward.

Not all Jeeps arrived with this "option"; mine didn't only the passenger side flips forward. I just sat in the backseat with the torx wrench on a socket wrench. On the 93's there is only 2 bolts you need to pull, the bottom one under the retractor, and up on the roll bar.
You can also purchase the "flip" piece from several sites for the drivers side if you wish.

From '87 through '90 YJs came with risers that "tumble" forward on both front seats.

From '91-'95 the driver's riser was "fixed" and did not tumble. However, a new feature had been added to allow the seatback to tilt forward at the base of the seatback.

It sounds as though you have the non-tumble riser, and a seat that isn't stock or correct for that year which doesn't tilt forward.

For what it's worth, ALL replacement Bestop brand risers do tumble, so if you ever replace your seat riser just use a riser from an earlier model ('87-'90) or a Bestop brand.

I'd like to hear if the replacement was worth a darn. I bet all replacement belts suck as bad as the original.

Picked up my replacements from Morris, they work great, although a bit touchy; meaning that you have to pull them out with a smooth motion. If you go yanking on it, it immediately stops. Another side note, the aftermarket ones I picked up have a bigger opening at the retractor; so all sorts of stuff can make its way in there.

I got my replacements from Quadratec. Have the same issue with putting them on...you have to do it real slowly and smoothly for it to pull right. Not a big deal after you get used to it. It's not a hard job to get done. Good luck.

That's what I figured. You can expect that "touchy" part to get worse, that's why I threw away my new Omix-Ada seat belts and replaced them with early '90's F-150 seat belts.

Any grade 8 bolts will work.

I have purchased the JC Whitney set. The only issue was the front floor mounted section, they were not long enough. Fortunately the OEM was still good. The rear seat also had an issue, as the mounting was different than the OEM. The end result is the rear seats are useless unless you have less than a 34 inch waste. Seat belt extensions have solved this issue. Be certain to read the pros and cons from the catalogs, I posted the issues with both. While neither was life threatening, both required several trips to the hardware store. As for your torx, just replace them. I used stainless with a shoulder. The threads are different than the other bolts.
I wasn't interested in the strength rating as it is just a pavement princess. If you are concerned, hopefully someone will post the specs.

Regards,

Jim W
