Installing Lumbar Support Factory TJ Seats

I needed lumbar support in my Jeep because of back problems. I thought about changing the seats but I came up with a cheap solution.

Buy an inflatable lumbar support pillow with a pump for adjustment.


Tilt the seat foreword and there is a plastic channel that the seat fabric clips to. Unclip the two and push the fabric between the backrest and the bottom.
Slide the fabric up a few inches and push the lumbar pillow (deflated) up into it and position it until it is where you want it. Make sure the pump is out and the hose is not kinked. Pull the fabric back down and connect the clips.

I just took it out and it feels good on my back. I did the mod in about 10 minutes.

Thanks for posting this! I was seriously considering new seats. And you are right, it think it took about 10 minutes to install which includes the time to take the seat out of the Jeep and put it back in!

I ordered this same one thru amazon and it finally came in. As everyone said 10 minutes max and it's in. No need to take the seat out on mine (2005) just flip forward like the op said.

Feels great!

Thats what I did. I was thinking of changing my seats but my back was out and I could not lift the seats out. That is why I went this way.
