No, the YJ has a different seat with the riser (part under your knees) in the seat bottom vs the riser is in the frame of the flat CJ seat.

The seat frame mounting holes in the tub will line up however, as the YJ and CJ7 tubs are essentially identical.
CJ7, 258, Dana 20 T-case, Dana 30 & AMC 20, TFI Ignition upgrade, headers, MC 2150 carb, YJ tub mod w/Family Style roll bar...

Are you military or former military? Take a look at!

Yes, they are identical through 1991. The bolt patterns changed in 1992.

I have a flip-up driver's bracket available that I have not listed yet. I had someone that I thought was going to buy the set, so I threw it in the truck and took it with me on my Military Leave. They ended up only buying the passenger side. PM me if interested.
This is how NAXJA Midwest Chapter elected officials like to treat their resident users and former multi-year supporters.
