Car Seats in 4 Door Wrangler

Any of you do battle with car seats in the 4 door wrangler? How is it? Any tips?

I'm 180lbs and 5'-11"

Considering purchasing one, but don't want to sell it in a couple years when we need to install a car seat!

Go for it, when u buy a car seat get the 3 in one car seat that transforms in to a booster.

I got 2 boys 4 and 1 2 car seats and can still fit some one in the middle lol the pic I included is in my 04 ram currently but that's the one I use for my 4 year old in my 4 door jk too

Absolutely! I even do a 3 in 1 in my 2dr. I bounce it back and forth from my wife's JLUR to my 2dr JK.

Even a rear-facing infant car seat was no problem in mine. I chose to have the car seat behind the driver seat because everybody seems to love to lean the passenger seat way back. People gotta break that gangster lean habit.

I could fit a large convertible seat and a small rear facing in the back of my TJ. It was a bit of a challenge, but not bad (only has 2 doors).

I was looking for a used 06 Unlimited, but ended up getting the 10 Unlimited because ease of car seats in the 4 door. I'm 5'5" 150# with no issues. Even with leveling kit installed.

I have 3 kids and the Jeep (JKU) is our family vehicle. 1 car seat and 1 booster; oldest gets stuck in the middle. I’m about the same size as you, and I have no problems getting the seats in. Step rails help the smallest (5 year old) get in, but it works. 2.5” lift
