Rear Tub - 2007+ Folding seat mod

anyone ever do this mod and have this seat set up? Seems you could do this to a 110 as well. Seats look a little more substantial than the old style fold aways (seats are in another auction at over $900) but the mechanism really cuts into the cargo space....

I have a pair of the Exmoor trim ones in leather that I'm about to install. Still working on the "reclining" second row seats @ the moment. Pretty sure Stephen @ Safari Rover has done the rears. These things are huge and definately signifigantly impact the utility of the cargo area.

Are those installed properly? Looks comfortable if I only had one leg, but otherwise, no.

The Mexico trucks had them. They just seem so big and dumb. You loose so much space for the one time a year you have a ton of people in your truck.

I think these were Disco seats, but revorder on the board had a red Defender 90 with back seats like that. Not sure how/if they folded up though.

Not a bad looking option for a rear seat. Can someone confirm those are disco seats?

Pretty much 100% sure these were the SE7 (SE7 as in these seats made them a 7 seater) jump seats.

I had these and decided to not to do this mod as my rear bench seat was suitable.

Here is the thread I posted for sale. Paul Davis ended up buying them and may have done this in his defender already.
