Build Request - Backwards folding rear seat brackets.

I dont know how many Jeeps have the flip and tumble rear seat, but there are a lot of them.

However, as far as I know, none of them fold down backwards to lay flat, pad side up. A lot of people just pull out their back seats. If they could lay flat, you would get back that extra foot the tumble takes away, losing 6in of height instead. Plus its padded. You could curl up and sleep on it too.

I was thinking this would be a great addition, but dont have any skills to make it happen. I would definitely buy a set and others I have mentioned this to would as well.

Anyone want to tackle this one?
Sorry if this is inappropriate for this forum..

The problem with a reclining back seat is I don't think there is enough room for the seatback to recline before hitting the tailgate. It might be doable on an LJ but not on a TJ. Other than that, I think it is a great idea.

If you fold it back and slide it forward that way it would lay down. I like the idea tho!
