Thanks for the further replies. FWIW, when I asked what the issues are with low-backs, I was actually hoping to get views pro and con. So I appreciate the responses all around.
Obviously, I understand the safety issues. I also happen to agree that a Jeep is not the "safest" vehicle in the world, and it's kind of a mix of factors, that we all resolve in our own ways (and hopefully, without being judged by others here). I ride a motorcycle, too. Indeed, I have a sidecar on it (with a low back seat
), and my kids ride in it. Most kids in most Jeeps I think ride in the back anyway, and in most Jeeps, that's a low-back seat.
Anyway, appreciate all the responses. Still trying to assess what brands are best and worst, etc.
