No complaints with the seat. Way more trouble to get the old bolts out than it was to install the seat.Helpful (0)

Easy install, great fit!
I had to buy a seat to replace the factory seat that the previous owner departed with. Extreme terrain had the best price of the places I looked. It took about 10 minutes to install this seat. The worst part is getting the c-clips in. I put two car seats in and the family went take a cruise. Very happy with the quality.Helpful (1)

Seat looks good and is pretty comfortable. Install was pretty straight forward. The only issue I ran into was the seat would rub the seat belt roll covers on both sides. So I had to remove them. But after that all was good.Helpful (0)

Not as advertised
First when the box arrived there was barely any cardboard left. I opened it just knowing it was going to be damaged. Prior to even ordering this seat I specifically wrote and asked if this seat would work on my TJ Unlimited and asked if it came will all the hardware needed. They told me it would directly replace my OEM seat. My OEM seat was a quick release with squeeze bar clips. This piece of garbage requires me to drill holes into my tub and they did not even include bolts to mount. Plus the mounts are to wide to fit in between the fender wells.Helpful (2)

The seat is solid, looks nice and the material doesn't get too hot in the sun, even in black. The fit wasn't great and I had to make some modifications that took extra time and was a little frustrating, but overall I am happy with the item.Helpful (1)

Great upgrade to my ‘06 TJ, comfortable with additional seating length also easy manipulation with un/folding, maybe a little issue with hook mechanism in locking down seat. Biggest issue with installation was removing original mounting bolts.Helpful (0)

How can a car seat be installed in this seat? Does it have the metal bar in the middle for hooking on a car seat?
This is not going to come with any additional belt hook and does not have a metal bar in the middle.
What size is side by side of the seat and the bracket ? Maybe i can change the brackets to make work on my jeep
This seat is 42" wide and is designed to be used in a 97-06 Jeep TJ.
Is any of the old mounting hardware required for reuse or does this come with all new hardware. Currently have no rear seat or hardware. Also is there a difference in TJ seat and LJ seat since mine is the unlimited LJ.
This does indeed come with this hardware along with the seat. This indeed does fit the LJ as well as the standard TJ, but the difference between the TJ and LJ is, simply put, the LJ is a bit longer (Longer Jeep).
Is this seat removable, does it utilize any of the original hardware and does it flip up like the original seat
Yes, the seat is removable. lt does not utilize the OEM hardware, but install hardware is included. lt does fold down.
Will I have to drill any new holes?
We have not attempted this fitment however, I would think it will be a tight fit. They likely will fit, but it will be tight, as is most things with the Jeep unfortunately.
This seat is available in a black, denim gray or denim spice finish with denim spice being the closest to a Khaki color.
No, the Smittybilt Vinyl Fold & Tumble Rear Seat will not have a "latch" system for car seats.
This is only compatible with TJ models, it is not compatible with JL models.
No, this would be a replacement rear seat for the 97-06 TJ.
This would be 41" in width.
The Smittybilt Vinyl Fold & Tumble Rear Seat will be roughly equivalent to the OEM seat as far as comfort is concerned. This will be slightly stiffer than a brand new OE seat, but by a minimal amount, and should be softer than an OE seat that most TJs have after years of use and wear.
This seat does not include seat belts and they would need to be purchased separately.
