    Aftermarket front seats 2dr

    My wife is constantly complaining about the seat in the Jeep (rightfully so the side bolster foam is tore on her side) and I would really love something more comfortable myself.
    I could have swore somewhere that getting aftermarket seats that the brackets required to fit them you lose the tumble function for getting into the back of a 2dr.
    I am having a really hard time finding any information about the base plate functions other than some are listed for a 4dr JK and that's it. Did I somehow fabricate the memory about losing the tumble function or if I were to purchase aftermarket seats the it would depend on the brand and the base plate?
    Or is it just accepting the fact that aftermarket seats in a 2dr I'll just not have as much room to climb in the back?

    You lose it with the mastercrafts. Do you carry people in the back that often?

    Hahaha first mod I did was remove the back seats and they have been in the garage ever since. BUT I don't want to rule out the possibility of ever using them again at some point. If there is a good aftermarket seat that they can still tumble I would be more likely to choose it even if I never use it. But if I'm gonna lose it no matter what.... Well then it's just something I'd like to know before buying seats

    So I found something on PRPs website listed as a tilt mount.... Says it lifts it maybe it's something similar.
    I honestly don't know what type of mounting brackets are under the stock seats or how these after market brackets work but this may be on the right track Screenshot_20190918-175210_Chrome.jpg

    Ok so I called PRP today and they said that the tilt mount is not something that's used in the JK it's a universal mount for any flat surface. But the dude I talked to mentioned that their jeep jk mounts mount on top of the OEM slide and fold track so I should have no issues with losing the fold and tumble function of my seats.
    Good to know so at least the PRP is an option. And I guess any other seat manufacturer that has brackets that bolt to the original seat mount should work to keep that function.

    The MasterCraft website specifically says on 2dr JKs it doesn't recommend use on the passenger side due to extensive modifications needed and does not maintain the fold and tumble. So looks like MasterCraft is out for me.

    Corbeau JK brackets replaces the entire mounting frame and has their own slider so that won't maintain the tumble feature either.

    So far most of this is leading me down the road if PRP

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
