30 Minutes and more cargo space in a WJ...
an ez way to gain some storage space in the WJ...
all you need is:
- a socket set
- a torx bit
- (4) wire lock pins 5/16" x 2 1/4" (2 1/4" usable, 2 1/2" total length usually)
- a drill and 21/64" bit (next step up from 5/16")
in a ZJ or XJ, you can remove the rear seat bottoms when you don't need them, but in the WJ they are permanent... or they were...
so when you flip the rear seats down, you have to flip the bottom part up, and you end up with this:
take the rear seat bottom out including the brackets, i think it was a 10mm:
you might could do the next steps without removing the brackets, but i found it easier to just take the brackets off, can't remember which torx bit it was:
drill out the end of the bracket hinge that is pressed over like a rivet:
after you drill it, you may still need to use a punch to remove the hinge:
drill out both parts of the bracket to 21/64" and verify the lock pins will fit, then repeat everything for the other bracket:
bolt the back portion of the brackets back to the floor:
now you have an ez to remove lower back seat, here it is installed:
and here it is removed only on one side, demonstrating how much space you gain:
