That could be set up to fold down, and use the quick release floor mounting. If you have room for that seat, you can bump seating up to 5! I happen to have a Suburban with this seat if you want some measurements.

Anyway, really slick work! I love seeing something done like this and not look hacked!
I stretched the Jeep to not only gain wheelbase but primarily to gain cargo space as well since I have two boys so a third seat isn't in the cards but it is an interesting idea. The current plan is to install the factory seat but likely move it rearward a couple inches to gain a little more foot room for passengers without sacrificing too much cargo space. I was actually thinking of building some boxes in front of the wheel wells that would include cup holders plus be used for arm rests as well as additional storage.

I installed a middle row seat out of a suburban into mine, its still only a two seater though.

What I was talking about was not so much adding a third seat, but using the third seat from a Suburban as your seat. It has flush mount brackets in the front and rear for removal. Plus no floor brackets sticking up. But more so, it may be a bit wider to utilize that extra space, and gain an extra seating position in your Jeep. You might still have leftover space for a cup holder design. Or maybe even custom speaker boxes with cup holders and storage!

Sorry for the confusion, I'll have to think about that one.

Took advantage of the great weather Saturday to start cleaning up the frame. Removed all the leaf spring perches and trackbar mounts. Front shock towers will die as well as the new front coil mounts resemble a TJ's and have a shock tower built into them.

I needed something that was going to be drivable sooner so I purchased a 2013 JKU and built it up for the moment. We actually have a customer who may be interested in having us complete this project for him.
