    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Rear Seat Recline kit, fitting all 2007 and up 4-door JKs. This is a product specifically designed for the JK Unlimited, those of you with the four-door JK, not for those of you with the two-door. Today we're gonna walk you through the installation of this kit, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches. These will pop right in place without the need to drill or cut anything at all. We're also gonna talk you through the construction and a few of the other features of this reclining kit. If you've ridden in the backseat of a four-door JK for any period of time, but especially for a long time, you might find that the straight up and down seating position is a little bit uncomfortable. So this recline kit is designed to give a little bit of pitch to not only the seat back, but the part that you sit on as well. You'll get about two and a half inches of lean out of this kit. Now, no, these spacers are not two and a half inches tall, but when you measure up at the headrest, you do get about two and a half inches of tilt from this kit. It is very easy to install, and it'll certainly be something that your backseat passengers will appreciate. These spacers are made of a material called Delrin. Delrin is a very lightweight and very strong plastic material. These are not metal. They're not aluminum or steel. These are actually a plastic material, but it is very, very strong. I would not worry about the strength of these at all. For the spaces that you put the four larger spacers, you do have four factory-style bolts that are a little bit longer that are gonna go in place of your factory bolts. Where you're only putting the smaller spacers here, you are gonna be able to get away with factory bolts, so you don't need additional bolts for that. The installation process, as I said, is pretty easy, because as you can see everything is going to bolt right in place, no major modifications necessary. And as I said before, it is a very simple one out of three wrench installation, although it may take you a little bit over an hour to get it done. The first step is to start at the rear of your seats, and you're going to loosen the bolts that are holding the seats in from the back. Do not remove those bolts, just loosen them so you have a little bit of play. Then you'll move around to the front of the Jeep, removing all four of the bolts that are holding the seat fronts in place. Then you'll flip the seats up out of the way, and the instructions recommend that you actually use the seatbelts to hold the seat bottoms up out of your way, which is a really good idea. From there, there are three additional bolts that you'll need to completely remove to get these three spacers in place. Now, those bolts are going to be very, very tight. An impact wrench will certainly make this a lot easier, whether it be pneumatic or electric, or you'll just have to have a large breaker bar and use a little bit of muscle. Once you get these three spacers placed underneath of the brackets between the floor and the seat bracket, you'll re-install your factory bolts. Make sure you get those torqued down nice and tight, and then move onto those four bolts that you completely removed from the front of the seats. Flip the seat bottoms back down with the brackets underneath of them, and install your new bolts. Now, you are gonna have to get these very tight. You're actually going to be compressing the washer a little bit, so again, an impact will definitely make this easier, but a large breaker bar and some muscle will work as well. As far as specialty tools, if you have access to that impact, make sure you have it on hand. If not, a large breaker bar. Other than that, you won't need anything special, just a little bit of time. This kit I think is appropriately priced. I think that the fact that they used Delrin instead of aluminum or steel helps to keep the cost down a little bit. You're still getting some very high-quality, very high-strength OE-style bolts that replace the shorter factory ones. It's a complete kit, it does the job, and it does it for around 60 bucks, which I don't think is a bad deal. So, if you wanna make those long rides a little bit more comfortable for those rear seat passengers in your Unlimited JK, this rear seat incline kit is a really nice addition. So, that's my review of the Rear Seat Recline kit fitting all 2007 and up JK Unlimiteds, that you find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Improves Rear Passenger Comfort. One of the major complaints of rear seat passengers riding in the 4 door JK Unlimited is the upright seating position. This upright position can make long, and not so long, rides extremely uncomfortable for rear passengers. But there is a solution, an Innovative JK Products Rear Seat Recline Kit. By using Delrin spacers to raise the front legs of the rear seats, this kit will add 2.50 inches of recline (measured at headrest) for a much more comfortable ride. The recline is accomplished without impacting the fold up/down function of the rear seats.

    High Quality Construction. This Innovative JK Products Rear Seat Recline Kit is proudly designed and manufactured right here in the USA. The bushing spacers are fabricated from a high quality Delrin material that has been machined to the optimum size and thickness. Delrin is an extremely stiff and durable thermoplastic that is far superior to aluminum or steel making it ideal for use as a bushing/spacer. Included are a set of certified class 10.9 factory style SEM bolts that are completed in a durable phosphate coating for long lasting corrosion resistance.

    Straight Forward Installation. This Innovative JK Products Rear Seat Recline Kit was engineered to install with basic hand tools in just under an hour. No permanent modifications or special tools are needed for a straight forward installation. Designed and manufactured in the USA / U.S. Patent 9,796,297.

    • Tuffy Security Products Deck Enclosure / #173-01 (07-10 Jeep JKU)

    Can the seat recline kit be used in a 2015 JKU that has a Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure installed in the cargo compartment? The deck leaves an inch or two clearance behind the upper seat back but I can't tell if it's sufficient.

    CharlesB

    • The Innovative JK Products Rear Seat Recline Kit is not compatible with the Tuffy Security Deck Enclosure or other security enclosures due to the amount that the seat back moves with this kit.

    • The Alterum Rear Seat Recline Kit will lean the rear seat back, which may cause issues with any trunk mounted storage solutions. We do not carry Mac's Black Box, so we are unable to test this specific combination.

      Install is near impossible w/o pro tools

      I have no doubt the product works great but I couldn't for the life of me get all the bolts out even with a breaker bar because of the angle needed to use the breaker. With a smaller wrench I couldn't get em moving AT ALL. Had to abandon the effort and I guess will look for a shop that has an impact wrench I can borrow.

      Perfect for Baby Carseat

      Tilts the seat perfectly for my child's carseat angle. My son is too young to be that far forward. Making him face backwards for the long trips were miserable for both of us. Now he's happy to feel part of the overlanding family.

      It works!

      It works just as described. The back seat no longer feels like a torture chamber designed to punish your head with the slightest of bumps. Now there is ample room between the rear passenger's head and the roll bar, not to mention the comfort gained from the recline.

      Alittle more leg room

      This is prob the cheapest and best upgrade I have done on my jeep. I Was kind of skeptical at first. But they do exactly as they say. A lot more comfortable now I was surprised how such a small adjustment could change so drastically ( makes you wonder why they don’t install these from the factory ). Took about a hour to install you will need a cheater bar for sure.

      Exactly what they're meant to do.

      I never really used the back seat, but I was getting enough complaints to figure this upgrade would be worth it. Honestly, the back seats are garbage in my opinion, so if you're looking for a massive improvement don't expect it. From initial comments, there is a slight improvement, however. - The price just seems a bit ridiculous for a couple plastic pieces, though. I'd say only do this upgrade if there is extensive use of the back seat. Other than that, save your money for a new lift kit or bigger tires!

      This made a huge difference in two aspects; first reclined is more comfortable that straight up and down, and second, it gives you more leg room. It's a great buy.

      Great kit!

      I spent the extra $$ for this kit vs the cheap Amazon kits because I wanted the higher grade OEM looking hardware. The kit is easy to install. My Jeep is a 2015 so the bolt removal wasn't too bad. A 1/2 drive socket wrench with a bar slide over the handle to fit in the limited area and add the leverage needed to get the 4 floor bolts off then the impact gun on the 3 rear bolts. You'll need an 18mm socket. Instructions are great. Spend the money and do it right!
