Luck and happy thoughts!

Edit: They originally came with a short cheap strap that held the latch to the rollbar. Any bungie cord will do the same thing, since if your Jeep is anything like most of ours, that seat strap is somewhere in the next life, possibly next to the strap which holds the windshield down.

I did a search, but couldn't find anything...

Thanks...did a search prior to posting; however, I couldn't find anything. Everyone calls things a different name when searching. In that thread, they called it a restrainer...I didn't think of that when searching. thx

In my TJ, all the crap in the back holds it up... I had a small bungee that went from the seat hinge to the roll bar...but one day while driving, I heard a twang and saw a little orange bungee go shooting off into traffic...

Nothing rides for free--the rear seat is heavy and it costs gas money to carry it around. put it in your garage (or living room -if your a redneck) --

If you don't have a strap or kids,hire a midget to lay back there and hold it for you.

i use a long extra thick black bungee cord that goes from roll bar bracket to roll bar bracket. catch the "feet" on the under side of the seat. my seat rides this way 99% of the time.
