Cj CJ Fold and Tumble Rear Seat

I have an 84 CJ7 with the factory rear seat. I would really like one that folds and tumbles without making any modifications to the tub of the Jeep. I would want to get it reupholstered to look like the factory seat so i was thinking a used seat. Will the YJ fold and tumble seats fit in the CJ and bolt up directly?
Thanks

I had a 92 YJ from 2003-2009.
It had the fold and tumble rear seat and was nice to have.
My 86 CJ7 has the factory fold and tumble rear seat option as well.

The YJ and CJ body tubs are pretty much the same dimensions on the inside so you could source out the seat floor brackets/tub sidewall latches.

Floor brackets bolt right in. Side latches can be installed (with welded backing plates in the wheel well).

Not sure of the hardware on the seat...I don't currently have it installed right now...am using a storage box in its place.

You may have to source the factory fold and tumble seat...so that you have the side pivot pins.

Try Collins Bros in TX, and Rudy's CJ's in OH for part pricing and suggestions.

I will post a picture of my seat and hardware when I get to my storage unit in a few days.

Only the 1987-1990 YJ seats are like the 1985-1986 CJ rear seats. Same brackets but you must have the additional side brackets on the wheelhouse installed to use them. They latch into the brackets to hold them in place.


See the seats here on a thread I was doing: https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/o.../#post40415359
