Space question for a TJ back seat

I have a question for you guys that have a TJ.

I unfortunately had to sell my '87 last year after breaking my leg, thus being unable to get in it to drive it for about a year. Finally, I am starting to look for another Wrangler.

I am a vendor year round for a couple jobs where I usually need to regularly take a few fold-up tables, several under-the-bed type totes and a tent that shrinks down to about 4.5 to 5 foot tall and 6 inches round (like this one, but slightly smaller http://www.dickblick.com/products/e-...ckw=52830-1010 ). I remember being able to play Tetris with and fit it into my '87 Wrangler, but usually wouldn't bring the tent along and I can't remember well how that fit in there. I always take a person with me, so I will need that passenger seat.

How large are the backseats in your TJs? Is the backseat easily taken out? I don't need a backseat in the Jeep at all if that means it could all fit. I have been looking for the 2006 Unlimited, but they are impossibly hard to find here in Nebraska. Honestly, I would still rather have the Jeep that I'm used to but if I have to have a longer Jeep, I will happily take an Unlimited.

Let me know of your thoughts! Thanks guys!

Kylee

The TJ back seats are only held in by two brackets. I took mine out by myself in about 5 minutes. They also tumble forward if that does the job.

The backseats in TJs are designed to be taken out quickly. The have a quick release handle, no tools, slips right out. I think I've only had my backseat in my jeep for a total of 3 weeks since I've owned it. It makes a great bench in my garage
