Celica Seat Install

Picked up some seats from a 2001 Toyota Celica form the local pull yard, for $125 and another $45 in steel and hardware...

Very comfortable, took about 1 1/2 hrs for the install...driver side. (have family coming so the passenger will have to wait...

I took pics of everything, but since my Droid x updated itself, it has sucked, and it only saved 2 pics.. I'll photo log the passenger side and post when done...

Basically a piece of flat stock welded to the bottom of the yota sliders in front, (cant take the sliders off, cause they hold the back on) Cut off the yota slider handle, then a piece of 1" square tubbing welded to them in the back. Then bolt those to the YJ sliders. Sits about 1.5 higher than stock...If I don't like the extra height, I can drop 3/4 -1" by welding the cross pieces to the inside of the yota sliders...

I was able to sneak the smitty neoprene covers back on...The back is about 4" taller than factory so they don't come all the way down, behind the butt

STEP BY STEP further in the post, Page 2!

Why is it I see some YJ where the driver side seat will fold up but others they will not? as yours and mine
Is there a certain model that came with the driver seat tilt forward latch?

BTW good idea on the seat. I'm looking for a bench seat set-up to plop down in my YJ.

Used to have a good sig but Mod threated to ban me...


Errrrrrr, Will complain else where - &y

Thanks for answering but not the seat part more of the bracket that holds it down to the floor.
The passanger seat folds up and out of the way to allow rear passangers to get in easer but I've only seen a couple of driver seats that move up to allow easy acess to the back seat.

I believe that the dual jumper seats were an option for the earlier YJs. I think it was the pre 91 flavor that you could get them on. That's where I would look if I were you.

I have them on both my '88 and '89 YJ. Lol.

Those seats look real comfy. *golf claps*

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

It was '92 when they changed the brackets. The earlier brackets were like the CJ brackets.

I have to tell you. Most of the junk yard seats I see on this Forum look like junk yard seats. Your Celica seat is the best yet. Makes me wish I looked a little harder before going with new seats. And spending $400. plus dollars.

They were a bit dusty, But great condition...

Finally got to drive it today and test the seat...So comfy....I ran to the store and came back. My original mount was too high up front, so I cut out the cross bar and rewelded it inside the yota tracks...dropped it atleast and 1"...maybe more...Much better...

Pics coming, I promise...

I got a tilting base from Quadratec and installed it on the Driver's side of my Jeep, very nice to have it. Will linkey in a moment.

Driver's tilting seat riser. http://www.quadratec.com/products/24290_01_07.htm

....I'm not smart, but I can lift heavy things.......

Fill out your PROFILE, and don't forget to look in the FAQ for writeups
