Back seat folded flat

Does anyone like to just ride around with the back seat folded flat most of the time? I kinda like that extra space and was wondering how weird I am.

In my mountain biking days I actually removed the entire seat (top and bottom). I put a sub woofer box behind the passenger seat, amp rack in the middle, and toll storage behind the driver's seat. This made the entire back flat, which allowed me to load my bikes, and also to sleep flat and comfy. I loved it, but eventually removed it (after 7/8 years) and replaced the seats. Main reason was I don't ride anymore. No, you're not weird!

I'm thinking about trying to mod it so it folds a little flatter. Idk if anyone's done that but it seems like a cool idea

My 96 folds pretty darn flat. This is how she rolls 98% of the time.

Mine stays flat all the time, cuts down on giving beggers rides, and more room for tool boxes

Very rarely. I'm too tall and can feel it on the back of my seat if it's folded down.

I love having mine folded down. So much room for anything you want. And IDIdiesel is right, really cuts down on your Jeep becoming a Taxi service Not sure about yours but on my 2000 folds almost perfectly flat and i can take both parts of the seat out.

I'm 6'2" so that bothered me. Also with the bottom of the seat folded up my I could not sleep in it unless I was scrunched up!

I just take the bench part out, it takes all of 10 seconds. Then it doesn't press against your seat and gives you a little more lower storage room for stuff you don't want shifting around. I had a flat of bottled water that leveled it perfectly; threw my air mattress over the top of it and had loads of extra headroom with the front seats put all the way forward.

Cut it out of a used truck bed mat cheap from craigslist. Made cardboard and newspaper stencils to get the shape tight then traced them on the mat with a sharpie. The rubber cut pretty easily with a sharp razor knife. Did one side at a time and left the edges just a smidge wide so they curl up to help contain any liquids that get loose in there, mostly from tossing wet gear in. I'd rate it about a 2 on a 1-10 difficulty scale. A steady knife hand and a little patience is about all it took. I love it cause it's virtually indestructible.

No, I actually kind of liked it also when I had mine like that. But for some odd reason all my friends, who have trucks and SUV's, insist on me driving my jeep around fully loaded, I am talking 7 people on average, on short trips, so I kind of have to leave the seat in their. I'm also tall so I have to pull the bottom bench out to get my leg room and not have my back pressed in.
