I'm not a Heavyweight!...

I removed the entire seat to clean the mud out the track and found all but one of the wires broken ONLY on the drivers seat. Well, I have said that the Jeep and I have been airborn a couple times.

WTF?? Where did all those wires come from? I have like one behind the driver seat, and it's snaked on the floor for the Ebrake.

I was shocked and smiling to myself when I got a load of this.

If you look under your seat, you should see them, though probably still intact.

What you can't see in the pic is there's a square shape formed by the gray cable the rusty springs are attached to. Then, there's 11 wires going straight across or horizontally in the pic to support the seat from caving in [I think]....but, it didn't feel like I was sitting in a hole, so maybe it just recently happened and hasn't had a chance to cave in. The passenger seat has them too, but all of them are fine. I ended up "rewiring" it with bailing wire.
