Well I'm one of them. I keep the rear seat folded up most of the time. Just very handy for my daily errands and such to throw things in the back. The seat folds up and down so easily it's no inconvenience at all.


Yup! And us 2-door Jeeper's are the coolest kids :rock:

Same. My 2dr rear seat is almost always folded so that I can fit stuff when I run errands. When kids want to ride it gets put back to upright position.

Most of the times is when transporting parts to the shop for a long day of installs. Occasionally, it's to throw in a couple of folding chairs. Sooner or later, it's bound to only be occasionally.

Until then

What back seat? Took mine out and put them in the garage. I love the extra space it gives me for trips. Best thing I’ve done

So I'm fully committed to this idea how. I'm assembling the components onto two steel plates, with a high flow quick disconnect on the air and a pair of electrical connectors on the wires. I should be able to unhook and remove the whole OBA setup if I ever really need to fold the seats down, although I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to unbolt the seat to get this stuff situated under there.

Instead of going wheeling in the mud in the rain, which was really tempting, I ended up spending a ridiculous number of hours making two cuts in a heavy steel plate I happened to have. I'm too stupid to get my cutting torch adjusted correctly, my bandsaw won't touch anything that wide, so I did it with a chop saw. Ugh. I still smell abrasive smoke many hours and a shower later.

I got a 2 door and like the ability to haul more than a loaf of Daves Killer Bread so my seat has been removed.

So I got the tank fitted out with all the stuff that screws in, and there is no way in hell this is going to fit under the seat. I was trying to avoid spending ~$700 on the ARB dual compresso setup with a bracket. The Viair system is well made and was less than half that. I was smart, I thought.

So I finally just broke down and ordered the Hauk M.U.L.E. to mount the tank under the Jeep, and with extra fittings and random crap, I'm into it $700, and I still can't inflate my tires until I get all of this shit sorted out.

Oh yeah, the original plan was to mount where the muffler used to be. Except I didn't realize there was a gas tank there. Because I'm stupid.

So to make a long story short, I guess at least I will still be able to fold my rear seats.

Mine stay down 100% of the time. It's just my wife & I and no kids. I do have the dogs in the car every weekend going to the park etc. I have a Weathertech cargo mat and a canvas dog cover that protects the remainder of the black carpet from dog hair. I love it. I just open the tailgate & doors from time to time & go in with my blower to blow out dog hair etc.

I fold mine down to carry stuff. I agree it holds almost as much as my truck did.

Mine stay down except for the very rare occasion when I have a third person in the jeep. Love the utility of the cargo area.

Id say 50/50 here. Either shuttling the kids around or carrying crap where the seats need to be down. Its both, all the time.

2dr, seat removed and stored pretty much since new. No use for it, like the space back there without it.
