JL vs JK backseat space different?

I currently have a '16 JKU Rubi... Is the backseat in the JL any bigger by comparison?

I looked at some JLU’s at the dealer while getting my free oil change on my JKU. The backseat is a little different but I wouldn’t really call it bigger or smaller.

My JKU seats three people back there. I am not sure how many more you would want without being a minivan?

Granted it probably does not fit three sumo wrestlers back there, but three average size is fine.

My question is does the JLU back seat fold down any flatter than the JKU? I wish my JKU would fold all the way down to make a flat seamless surface.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

The JLU is smaller. It has nearly 2" less hip/shoulder room and it also has less "passenger volume" measured by cubic feet. The driving position is also less comfortable.

If hauling people is what your concern is, you should test drive a JLU for a while before buying. Just my $0.02.
