    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.

    Deck Enclosures. This kit has been confirmed to work with the following:  
    • 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.

    • 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.

    Do this make it easier to install rear facing children's/infant carseats in the back seat?

    • The Alterum Rear Seat Recline Kit does increase clearance between the front and rear seats; and will help with the install of rear facing car seats, depending on their size.

      Great idea

      Such a simple idea with great results! The bolts are an absolute pain to remove and install with a breaker bar but I don't have an impact driver. Patience is your best tool if you have to navigate the limited space in the back seat with a breaker bar. If I had to do it again, I would remove the doors for more clearance. Overall not a bad experience and the kids LOVE the difference it makes. Again, it would be such an easy install with an impact driver.

      Fits perfect. More leg room!!!!!

      Install was fairly straight forward. I used an impact gun and can see why it would be difficult to break loose the seat mounting bolts with a wrench or 3/8" ratchet. A long 1/2" breaker bar or long handle 1/2" ratchet would be just as good if you do not have access to an impact gun just takes a little more umph and time. I am 6'2 and did not sit in the seat prior to install but it was really comfortable after install and can see why this product was created.

      Really hard work to remove and replace bolts. I used an 18inch extension bar and it was not enough. Great product tilts the rear seats just enough to make the rear seat ride bearable. 4 stars was for the hard work otherwise 5.

      One of the very first mods anyone should do

      I wish I found these sooner. Would have been the first thing to mod. Took about an hour/15 to install these using a long ratchet. Would have been 20 minutes using an impact wrench, but it's mad tight for the 4 bolts on the front of the seats. I recommend sliding front seats all the way up to give more room. Other than that, directions are self explanatory and easy to follow.

      Comfort at last !

      We don't ride in the back seat of our 2016 JK very much, but when we did, it was very uncomfortable for any trip more than about 15 minutes because the back seats do not recline - they are straight up and down. I bought this kit and the instructions were great and the parts all fit perfectly. Note: you will NOT be able to remove the existing bolts and re-install them or install the new bolts without a breaker bar or an impact wrench. My breaker bar does not have a ratchet mechanism so I could only turn the bolts from 1/8 of a turn to 1/3 turn at a time. It took me about an hour and 15 minutes to uninstall all the bolts and about an hour to install the plastic shims and re-tighten all of the bolts. With the recline kit installed, I think the back seats are tipped back around 2-3 inches at the top of the seat back (sorry I didn't measure it), but they are definitely more comfortable than they were before. Since the kit is reasonably priced and it only took me a few hours to do the install, I would definitely recommend this kit. Keep in mind, this kit does not allow you to adjust the seat back from straight up and down to back a little bit (or back and forth), it literally just permanently tips the seat back a little bit to make it more comfortable. I was concerned that the kit might not allow the seats to fold down as flat as they used to, but I didn't notice too much difference at all.

      A Bit More Room

      The instructions were easy to follow and not a lot of parts to install. However, the factory bolts were on tight and had to use a breaker bar. The factory thread locker made it difficult to tighten the four new SEM bolts that replace the factory bolts. Once all the bolts have been tightened, you may want to go back and recheck all the bolts. I found a few loose. This is also explained in the installation instructions. The results of the installation are great! I can see the difference in the angle of the back seat. My son who is 6’2” and weighs 160 lbs (skinny) states he is more comfortable, because he feels he has more leg room.
