Bucket seats in rear

Has anyone put bucket seats instead of the standard bench in the back of their YJ? Looking at doing this as my YJ doesn't have the back seat hardware anymore.

The aftermarket bucket seats are wide along with most all oem seats. I have seen a few jeeps with one bucket seat in the rear and storage off to the side. Also consider the height as the rear is about six inches higher than the front. Some low slung ch style front seats may be the ticket.

I know its not bucket seats but I'm still working on fitting this in mine (newer middle row suburban seat). I had to narrow it by two inches. It will fit now just got to figure out seat belts. I plan to go 5 point harness shortly.


There is a guy in the build threads he did durango bucket seats in his he had to cut and widen the wheel wells for it all to fit. He made three threads on it part 1,2 and 3. Ha ha.

Grandboost also installed a single YJ bucket seat in the back of his, I think they are to wide to go with two back there.
