Wagoneer Rear Seat Compatibility

So, I just bought a '77 Wagoneer, but it did not come with a rear seat. The guy who owned the rig before me threw it out, but he did keep the mounting brackets.

My question is: What seats are compatible with these brackets?

Obviously, AMC/Jeep Wagoneer seats sould mount fine, but he said something about a third row seat from a Tahoe (not sure what year it was) fitting on to those brackets, too. Anyone know anything about that?

Also, will the seats from a Chrysler/Jeep Wagoneer, Willys Wagoneer, a FSJ Cherokee, or any other Jeep model mount without a problem? It would be much easier to find some seats if I could look at other years/models to pull them from at junkyards or on Craigslist.

Never heard of a Tahoe seat bolting to the brackets. I am sure you could make a Tahoe seat work but it woudn't be that simple.

Any FSJ rear seat will work. I don't think they changed much of anything over the years. Just in case, you would want to stick with 1974-1991 rear seat and you should be fine:

1974-83 Cherokee
1974-83 Wagoneer
1984-91 Grand Wagoneer

Hope this helps.

The original back seat I have is a real pain in the rear (Get it... in the rear...). It is difficult to fold down and very difficult to remove for turning the ol' GW into a mobile hotel for camping w/out a tent. I think I am going to throw 600-800 bucks into something that will easily fold down and then forward and out of the way easily so I can throw a couple of foam pads and some sleeping bags in the back.
The cost of something aftermarket/new is going to be way worth the extra dough for me and might not be that big of a difference in cost for you when looking for a replacement.

Well, I ended up with this seat.



It cost me $25 from a salvage yard nearby, and it's in perfect condition, aside from the line in the center from someone leaving a bolt in it while it was folded. I don't see a need for spending $575 extra for a seat that folds and comes out easier.

It looks like it fits nice. Was that out of a similar Waggy?

They had already scrapped the vehicle, so I never saw the actual vehicle, but it was, according to them, out of a waggy from the 80's.

The color doesn't match, but I'm just going to put a seat cover on it until I have the interior redone.

It is from a Grand Wagoneer.
