What does the rear seat latch to?

I've got a 86' CJ7 with a rear seat that pivots forward on two brackets located towards the front. At back of the seat there's a latch in the middle that goes to nothing. Right below it on the floorboard is a bolt that holds in the two center seatbelts, but nothing to secure the seat to! Since I have kids that ride back there I really want to find out what goes there.
I have aftermarket Besttop seats in front, but don't believe the rear is since there is no embossed "B" on it. It only pivots to a 45 degree and the back does not fold so I'm not sure if it's considered a solid mount seat or not. I am pretty sure it's not a fold and tumble seat. I've looked online to buy it and have searched to see just pics of it, and can't find anything. If I have to make one I would like it to look as stock as possible. Does anyone know what I'm looking for, or what type of seat I have? If you've got a pic I would be very grateful. Thanks guys

I stand corrected

Guns don't kill people... Bad trail spotters do.

Thanks for the speedy reply copper. I didn't figure they were stock, thought maybe from a yj..... I'll have to unbolt them to see if there's a label underneath. As far a taking pics, I just started this account and can't post pics yet. Thanks again for the input!

Sure thing. But go get a free account at photobucket.com and post the IMG code in here. Someone will make it click-free for ya.

As an after thought- you could always sell that seat and pick up a CJ seat or a comfy aftermarket seat for your rig

Late model Jeep CJ's had fixed rear seats bolted to the floor up until 1984, 1985 and 86 model CJ's had fixed seats with an available fold and tumble seat as an option. See photo below.



The fold and tumble seats pivot on two brackets on the front and hinges itself in the middle to fold down. There should be two locking latches on each side of the wheel houses to hold the seat in the normal sit position for factory seats. Bestop "Fold & Tumble" also mount this way. Manufactures like Steel Horse, Rugged Ridge, and Smitty Built have there fold & tumble seats mounted with the same front two brackets but the rear has a single latch that bolts to the floor in the middle. See photo.



Hope that clears things up for you.
