There are some expectations that should be met. If there is a 3rd set of seat belts, you would think a third person would be able to sit there.

Easy fix for back seat. 7'' x 9'' 5/8 plywood board tucked under (between foam and wire support) and 2 screws to prevent from moving.

I have yet to check my JEEP but I propose the following. The seat is probably not as rigid as the sides do to the HUMP in the center of the floor so when the seat folds down it forms around this spot allowing the seats to fold generally flat for more space and ease of use. With to stiff a seat the springs will not allow sufficient flex if they are to stiff and would not allow the seat to fold. After editing my post I realize somebody already stated this sorry. Also if you modify this with a board or brace it into the other seat you then must drop both seats because they are fixed to each other instead of just dropping 1 side for example. I do like to modify my JEEP and can see spending a big chunk of cash should check all aspects before spending $$ but also JEEP should have built this better just shoot them and email and let them know Engineers and Builders can't think of every thing all the time they use comments to better themselves and fix problems.

As usual...the aftermarket comes to the rescue and saves Chrysler's craptastic engineering. Now, why couldn't they do this at the factory and raise the MSRP $0.75 cents? Geez.

Nice. That's a super simple design....anybody with a drill, grinder, and the ability to cut, or have cut, a flat piece of plate could make it for a few dollars.

I'm going to go ahead and make one tomorrow, I think. Thanks for sharing!
