Can I bolt WK Seats into My WJ

There are quite a few related threads but none of them seem to answer the question. Will front seats from a WK bolt into my WJ?

Good question. I am not sure, but I will follow this thread. I don't like the WJ seats.

Would like to know this also! I dislike the seats also.
For one thing they seem a bit high. My head is only 2 inches from the ceiling and I am only 6' tall...

I'm ok with headroom at 6'4" but i would like to not have to use the back seat to hold up the front seat. My welds only lasted a year and a half and the seats doing the right handed lean again, so i am curious about this as well.

As soon as I get a wj I'll throw in my mom's wk seats! It will be in about a month or so though.

I'm too impressed with our wk seats but they only have 53,xxx miles on them so they aren't all that warn in. I'm not sure if wk's were ever made with a black interior so if you have a black interior wj it might be hard to make it look stock-- or at least good. Lastly, I like the leather better on the WJ over the wk leather so I'm not sure if it's worth it to me... If money is no option you could always get new/stiffer foam. Dreamin' big now lol

That is one of the few things I miss about my ZJ, the seats were way better than the WJ.

Silly me wanting to swap WJ seats into my XJ and you guys are all trying to get rid of yours.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

same for me - I really like the WJ seats, especially for long trips, every time I got out of the seats after hours of driving felt like I only did a 10 min trip

For me WK and WK2 seats are stiffer, like german car seats - love it or hate it
