Back seat

Any of you two door guys remove your back seat??

I rarely need it for passengers and end up with it folded most of the time.

Curious minds want to know.

I haven't.....yet. From what I've read it's just a matter of unbolting it from the floor

I run mine removed for my dog. Takes about 1 minutes no unbolting. Open the hatch, grab the rear bar that moves and pull it to the solid bar. When you do this you can see the front part of the seat in latching from the floor. Give it a tug up and out. May take a few tugs but she will come out. Store away and call it a day

ETA: these bars are on the back of the seat near the floor

Took my back seat out the day I bought the jeep. Haven't had it back in since.

My back seat came out about 1 month after I bought it. I originally did it to fit my skis. It went back in once or twice, but it hasn't been back in in probably 9 months now. I will toss it in if I know I need the extra seating, but it works much better as a two seater with a big trunk

an easy thing to do, side front seats forward, open the tail gate and lift up on the seat release on the back seat, let the back of the seat fold flat, lift the back seat up from the rear and when you se the bar under the rear seat push down on it, the seat well release from the floor, just pick it up and take the whole thing out.

After my first trip exploring about a year ago , the back seat was removed and stored in the garage ever since. If I have to play taxi they just jump in the back and sit on the floor

Have had the seat pulled out of mine since day one as well. No tools needed. Have had it back in 2 times, probably won't put it back in the Jeep any more though... its getting to be to high for me to lift the seat, lol.

Haha..had to do that once when I picked up a large fish tank and underestimated the largeness of it!!! Had to fold the back seats down and had kids with me. I told them to hold their seatbelts and look like they were sitting normal....
I took side streets and drove slow...

Took mine out a month after I bought it. I put a Tuffy Security deck in then changed to a DeeZee tool box to make room for my dog. Now, I just need to get it linex!

I removed mine a few weeks ago. It is easy to do and leaves tons of open space. I dont really drive any passengers with me with the exception of my girlfriend so there is no need for us to have a back seat. When you do take the seat out, it wants to unfold as you are moving it, so I would bungie it so it stays folded while you are moving it.

Thanks for this thread. I'm thinking about taking the back seat out of my JK as well. Looks to be easy enough. Thanks for the tip about it wanting to open!

Mine goes in the Jeep for about two months in the winter. I occasionally have to pick up employess and ferry them to work when we have heavy snows.

Other than that it sits in the garage. The 2dr makes a roomy two person vehicle and a joke of a 4 person vehicle.
