I believe, after some research, they are the stationary type brackets from 76-86 CJs. They are definitely factory pieces.

Try a good quality cobalt bit (not the big-box brand name, the element cobalt) to drill hardened metals. Works good. Get good ones- hardware store mass-market cobalt drill bits don't last any longer than really good HSS bits.

My 76 cj5 has brackets that are the same as my 87 brackets. Well, look the same but probably dont bolt in.

That is good to know! I will have to make sure to switch that from my '89 winter beater to my '91 'keeper' project. I would hate to not tilt the seat... THANKS
