I've seen it posted somewhere but can't seem to find it. Where does one find those full size swing away rear jump seats?

And a follow up question:

Does anyone have opinions about the bestop rear bench seat? Would it look odd in a SW? http://www.quadratec.com/products/24277_10XX_PG.htm

The only problem with the bench seat in an SW is resolving the seatbelt problem. They're built in as part of the lock&folds.

Has anyone done the full upgrade to Exmoor seating, swing ups in the tub and upgrades in the front with primo seats...pretty expensive when its all said and done you're talkin 4k. Not cheap but is it worth it trying to marry comfort, safety and not worring about ruining the material with a little mud and water! (not that I would EVER get my 90 dirty)

The exmoor stuff looks great but man is it expensive. $4k for seating seems insane!

I have been researching the Corbeau Bajas - fixed backs for the front and a fixed back bench for the rear. The bench I would plan to mount it facing backwards so the kids would use the back door to get in and out. I want to make everything easy to remove so when I need space it is there. Still need a bunch of planning and might just need to order some stuff to see how it fits.

Regarding the lock and folds - do you guys think it would look retarded to install 2 passengers side seats, one facing backward and the other forward for ease of entry?

Since the tailgate swings open from left to right I was thinking it would be easier than having them side by side with no room for someone to squeeze between them if they both were in the open position.

Some passengers might have more of a problem with that. Car sickness/motion sickness can be triggered by weird things. It would look different, but who cares right. You could try it. I thought about staggering them, but I'll opt to just do side by side.

Bill-I'm very happy with how they turned out, and so are my kids. Now they can finally ride in daddy's new car. I did not do the install, Blue Ridge Rover Works did. They did a great job. They are solid seats, mounted well. I decided to take out the rear window trim pieces to fit the belt holder, instead of drastically cutting the trim. The puma fronts are matching XS trim. I'll post a pic later tonight.

it looks fantastic and I think you pushed me over the purchase edge to get these. I'm going to do the install myself as I am taking everything out anyway to do other upgrades. Did you have the front seats swapped out also?

Those pumas look really good and the exmoors are just bad ass on their own!

Here's a couple shots. You can see the black brackets you have to buy separately to attach the belts.
