    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)

        5 Top Rated Questions

        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.

            Work perfectly

            To tell the truth, it was very tough getting the bolts out initially, but the instructions were spot on, and it does make a difference in the "comfortability" of the back seat.

            Excellent, easy and practical mod

            I saw these on a JK forum and did some research. Excellent reviews, but all mentioned the difficulty of removing the bolts by hand. Everything was as advertised. If you can use an impact wrench, this install would be very easy. Doing it by hand will require adding an extra pipe over your ratchet just to get extra leverage. Once installed, these spacers make a huge difference. The seats recline just enough and there’s more leg room. I’ve had a big 6’4”, 260 lb friend ride in the back with no complaints. My big kids love the slight recline and extra leg room, and the baby’s car seat fits in the back much better now. This should be a factory setting in my opinion. Definitely worth the effort to install them and your rear seats will still fully fold down. Tips: - borrow an impact wrench if you don’t have one. - if you do it by hand, use another hollow pipe over your ratchet to get extra leverage. This is going to be quite a workout for your arms and hands - and will take you a good hour or so by hand. But it is completely doable. - the rear bolts under the seat are tricky because of the angle. I used a shorter hollow pipe over my ratchet on those and also an extension on my ratchet. Go slow on those so that you don’t injure your hand on the metal hardware under the seat. My ratchet popped off the bolts several times as I was having to use quite a bit of force to get the bolts out. If I did not have the pipe over my ratchet, I would have torn my hands up. - Use your seat belt to wrap around the seats when you get the front bolts out to keep the seats from falling on you while you loosen the rear bolts under the seats. - when you reinstall the seats, add some locktite to the bolts. - if I had to do it over again, I totally would, but I’d use an impact wrench for sure.

            Seat recline install.

            I received my incline kit The kit was complete with all of the hardware. Installation time was about an hour using a 1/2 drive breaker bar, 1/2 drive ratchet and 18 and 19 mm sockets. Also used two small bungee cords to hold the seat backs up and out of my way while unbolting and installing the recline kit. Without the breaker bar it would have been more difficult to break the torque from the factory installed bolts. Installation was easy and I used some lock tight thread compound for piece of mind that the bolts were secure. Installation time just over an hour.

            Rear seat recline

            Got it put in and sat on the seat. A marked difference. May not be perfect, but figuring that Jeep didn't want to fix it over 10 years I would say this is as close to perfect as you can get. Can't wait to try it out on longer trips. I do recommend and impact for RandR.

            Impossible to Install

            Hours and hours and stitches later it was still not installed. We went back at it with every tool we could borrow or buy and could NOT break one of the bolts loose. So after a month or more of driving around with the backseat unsecured from the floor, we gave us and used the bolts to resecure the seat to the floor. In theory this is a great idea, in practice near impossible. thus the 2 stars overall. 1 star for the cost value because it's expensive for 3 bolts. 1 star on fit because i can't say if it fits or not. :(

            Wow get ready for a workout!

            The factory bolts are almost impossible to get out without and impact gun, I used a 3/8 ratchet and breaker bar and got 6 out of the 7 bolts .The last one I just could not get out and I didn't want to strip the bolt so had to bring to a shop to remove that one bolt. Overall took me 2 hours to get the job done but it was worth it my 11 year old says it makes a big difference. As long as he's comfortable I'm happy.

            Its amazing that a few little blocks can recline the seat just enough to make a difference. The install is simple other that a tight place and a few factory lock tight bolts.

            Definite improvement in comfort

            Rode in the backseat of my JKU for the first time and it was harsh. Bought this kit and while its not a full recliner and isn't advertised that way it really makes a difference in the comfort of your rear seat passengers. Like seats on an airplane, they simply put you in a better position for riding. I had some issues with removing the factory bolts but a little innovation with a pipe on the ratchet wrench and all worked well.

            as advertised

            Not too hard of an install. Some bolts were tricky to get to, but I didn't have to use anything more than a telescopic ratchet I bought at Wal-mart. Installed just before a trip and my daughter, who had complained about the seats before, didn't say a word this time around, so I'll consider that a win!
