New and Improved Rear Setup!

Over the last 2 months of cold winter I made it my personal project to spice up my interior a bit along with re-arrange some stuff. I decided to bedliner my whole interior, install 4 point belts, build a rear shelf, mount my full size inside my rig, re-wire....everything... , and make my own rocker gaurds. But that is what I have done so far. I have 2 Black YJ seats and black roll bar padding to install just yet. Let me know what you think! As of now I only have a couple pictures sorry.

the way you mounted your shoulder harnesses you need a harness bar going across the b pillar about shoulder hight and slots in your seats for the harnesses

Unless of course you have money to blow on a chiropractor!

Here is something you need to check. Is your belts DOT rated if not they are not legal for the on road use. Now most cops will not give you a ticket but still if they want to be a pain in the arse then yes.
The other is that your shoulder mounting is to high. You defeated the reason for them. Shoulder and lap belts are suppose to keep you from coming out of the seat.and work together.

Yep the way you have those mounted is more dangerous than the original seat belts.

They'll work great right up until the crash. But of course, you probably aren't planning on getting in an accident any time soon, right?

Four point harnesses are a PITA if in a daily driver.

just because you're 18 and cant afford a harness bar doesnt mean you should do things that arent safe. you are better off with the stock seat belt system until you can afford the correct setup

we arent trying to be rude. we're looking out for your safety.

Yep, the way you currently have your harness configured is DANGEROUS. As already stated, you should go back to your 3-point belts until you can afford to do it correctly...just sayin.

I was just going to ask for a link to the belt bar... I plan on buying that soon. I don't drive the Jeep a whole lot as it is. But hey thanks for looking out!
