cj5 seats

hello,

i just got a cj5...first thing i did was tear out the interior. the seats that were in it were crap and the bolts that were attached to the actual seats, some had been ripped completely through.

anyways... i need to put new seats in. i have the risers for both sides and are still in good shape. i can get a full set (fronts and rear bench) from a tj.

will the tj seats bolt directly to the cj risers? also will a tj bench fit in a cj5? i know the tj bench has some special hardware mounted to the floor to make it able to fold up. can this hardware be bought to install in the cj if the seat fits?

ANY help would be great. THANKS!!!!!!

Here is a link to the wiki page about seat swaps. Which ones bolt in, which ones require minor modification, and which ones require major modification.

Hope this helps.
