Actually sleeping might be that bad, but - right after I bought my LJ, and while the carpet was still in it, I discovered that it was actually quite comfortable for two people in the back, with the rear seat on the ground behind it, parked on a mountaintop with snow drifting down.... for 45 minutes or so, anyway. Happy Valentine's day 2005.

Me neither. But XJ's are pretty roomy with the back seat folded down, don't ask how I know

After the last 8+ years in the Navy I have learned to sleep in some wierd positions and be comfortable. I have been able to sleep in my Jeep with ease

I slept on the way home from wheeling, my body was slouched over. I wish i had seen the looks people gave my mom on the way home doorless. I slept for about an hour then woke up, stuck in traffic.

In my unlimited I can lay the rear seat down, and with that space plus the cargo space I could sleep pretty good. I havent actually camped back there yet but mabey one day.

Well I've slept twice in my TJ.. I can't fall asleep laying flat, so therefore I couldn't sleep reclined, first one was I had to get some rest, so I got off the road.. and about 1/8 mile from the road, took off my shoes, and jumped in the back seat and slept.. The other one was I had gotten stuck with a friend, my cell battery died, so we couldnt call for help, so I let him sleep reclined, and I put the backseat down, and tumbled it and used that space as a bed with the rear hatch window open and the gate closed.. Both times was comfy.. But then again im only 5 ft 6 so It was easy for me.

Let's see some more pics. This is a funny thread. I have slept in my Ford Explorer many times but never my Jeep.
