Who Else Has Removed Their Rear Seat / Seat Belts?

My rear seat hasn't been in my TJ for about 6 months or more. The seat belts on the floor were always in the way of cargo so I decided they had to go... removed them today along with the belts on the rollbar in the back. No idea if I'll ever even need them again or what. Anybody else decide to de rear-seat their TJ?

I removed my rear seat the day I brought my TJ home. I mounted a homemade tool box in the back and used that seat belt hole to secure it to the frame from the inside!

Come go for a ride and I'll be glad to demonstrate the difference between what you perceive incorrectly as "control" and what control actually is.

Pick a different reason because that one is both lame and stupid to perpetuate.

I have not had my rear seat installed in years. I removed the bracketry to Rhino Line. I also mounted an Olympic Mountaineer Rack last winter, so I just never put the bracketry or seat belts back in, and don't intend to. I don't plan on getting rid of it or my seat either in case I need to put it in again for whatever reason even if it takes a few hours.

My friend did the same when he modified the back of his TJ into a dog bed. I have his seat in my garage, and he has his bracketry and seat belts somewhere.

Funny you should say that, I was actually considering selling it all and putting it towards an RE 3.5" Kit .

I pulled all that stuff out a few years ago.

I thought about selling it, but if I ever sold the Jeep. someone might want it.

I removed the back seat from my old YJ and put it back in the day I sold it to my brother. I liked having the extra space. Being only the Dog & I (sometmes the girlfriend), it never was needed anyway. If Jeep made it an Option, I would not get one.

I have not got around to removing the one from my TJ yet, but it doesn't have a 1,000 miles yet. I like the idea of installing a tool box and using the seat belt holes to secure it.

been removed for quite a while, but recently I installed the seat and belts again, since we had a couple of runs where people sat in the back
Haven't bothered taking the stuff out ever since ... kinda comes in handy when you're 'putting' around town with friends.
Heck ... I even slept on the backseat a couple of weekends ago when we went for a little fishing/camping trip

I've had the back seat out since the beginning of the summer, all it was doing was getting rained on. I'm not sure if I can justify selling it yet though. I left all the seat belts in as well, hadn't really thought about pulling them out. I plan on building a custom box for the rear area that serves as a lockable storage unit/sub box, but that'll probably be pretty far down the line. Then I'll be able to sell my insta-trunk too.

If you ever want to put the seat again and you let it rain in the back (like I do), you will want to figure a way to keep the threads from rusting. I have had mine out for a while and tried to put them in yesterday and busted loose one (I am assuming its a welded nut or similar). I ended up putting much shorter bolts in the other 3 holes since I didnt have a tap of that size to clean it out.
