Second row seating options in a 110 hard top

Hi, I recently purchased an ex military three door 110 hard top and was wondering what relatively easy options (if any) are there for installing forward facing second row seats? I have inward facing bench seats in the load area but would like to eventually add some forward facing seats in the middle of the vehicle. Of course, you would have to access the seats through the rear door but I would like to have the extra seats. Does anyone know of any options?

Apologies if this has already been covered in a different thread but I have searched for hours and have not found anything.

You can mount exmoor folding seats to the body - see pics below . These were mounted backwards by the PO but have since been moved to facing forwards.

Another option is getting a tumble seat similar to this and mount it to the floor:

what you got for seatbelts on those folders?
Only thing I'd be worried about. Those seat backs aren't likely designed to support weight in that direction in the event of an accident.

Of course, on a 3 door 110, its the only way to mount them really.

I think the previous owner just turned them that way for looks don't think he actually had anyone using them. I have since swapped them to forward facing. PO also had aircraft seat belts which attach to eye bolts in the floor. I haven't actually gotten round to switching the seatbelts yet but even if I did not 100% sure i would want to carry more than a single passenger at a time - not much room between the 2 seats.

I have 2 kids... not big.. but yea without a shoulder belt to keep them a bit in their own seats.

I really only need one (wife isn't caught dead in the rover). Want high back front seats too. low back seats are death traps. Ugh.. have to knuckle under and pay out. Which, my ass will thank me for anyway.

As to the OP those are the options I've seen as well. there's talk of VW and Land Cruiser seats, but they're not the best, only reasonable if you have em laying around and no cash.

Jeep TJ seats are cheap.

If you want a 3 point belt then your going to have to build a bracket on the sides or do a hoop inside. You can probably find a jeep rear seat used that may fit inside the wells.

any of the fold and tumble jeep cj/tj seats should work... like.. 1958-92 or something. But they're all low back seats.
