XJ back seat question.

Hi Gang,

I have a 97 XJ that I have had for over 8 years. My kids were infants when I first got it. Now that they are older, their heads stick up above the back seat. I am worried that this is dangerous god forbid we have an accident. Can anyone suggest a mod to fix this? Does anyone have similar concerns?

Thanks very much,

David

Bout halfway down shows pics of WJ seats swapped in. Looks nice and it will get you headrests back there.

If you want to keep a more stock look you can also add headrests to your stock seats. Here's a write-up for adding ZJ head rests to a stock XJ back seat that my friend put together a few years ago: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/z...riteup-516306/
