Unlimited - Adjusting Rear Seat Back Support (the vertical part of the back seat)

Is it even possible? Passengers in the back have complained that the seat angle is 90 degrees making it very uncomfortable for their backs. If not adjustable from factory, are there any modifications available? Thanks

Stupid design and no forethought!!!!!!!!

I was dissappointed when I took the unlimited for a test drive and found out that backseat did not recline either. It makes no sense for DC to NOT have it recline. .

Lazy engineers!! Too lazy to figure out how to make the seats fold down flat, and adjust.

I agree, it would be cooler if it reclined. But what kind of ungrateful passengers complain about someone else's brand new vehicle? Jerks!

DITTO! DC really dropped the ball on their failure to allow adjustment of the rear seat or allow access to the back seat in the 2 dr.

THOSE changes will be made over the next couple of years - hopefully we will be able to retrofit our jeeps (two chances!).

Is the rear seat sitting position more or less uncomfortable than the old TJ (which I just sold). My jeep will be here today or tomorrow (hopefully).

I've read about a lot of complaints about the rear seat in this forum, but none of my passengers have complained. In fact they all marveled about the extra legroom over the Grand Cherokees. That being said, it does feel a little upright back there. Some enterprising individual will come out with a better seat. Just watch. I also noticed a warning about rear seat passengers banging their heads on the sound bar. Whoops! They were right. That's gotta be figured in by the aftermarket seat gurus.

Get a roof rack, make them ride up there and see how they like it.

Heres an enterprising individual on eBay, its even 'C-channeled' so you don't have to completely remove the bolts: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251548465751...l2649#shpCntId
