Default FJ40 Rear Seat

I'm looking to remove my rear side facing jump seats out of my 40 and replace them with a forward facing bench or forward facing jump seats. Does anybody have any suggestions, or pictures, on a good combination/ donor? I'm considering trying to get my FJ80's third row jump seats to work but I'm not sure that I want to go through the trouble.

A few years ago, I got a Jeep rear seat (from one of the Jeep catalogs) that fit right between the two rear wheel wells. I put on two cross bars on the seat and I had simple slide in brackets made with a quick release pins so they were removeable. It worked really nice, they even had seat belts. Unfortunately I have sold the car so I do not have any pictures.

old school blazers (with the removable top) or classic bronco seats also work well, just a bit harder to come across

Go to Craigslist and search under "Rubicon". There is a Jeep grey cloth 2003 rear fold & tumble seat for sale for $150 in Colorado Springs. If it's still available thats a screamin' deal.

Thanks guys. I just picked up some Suzuki Sammy rear fold and tumble seats that I think will work out well. I'll post some photos once they're installed. Now to go rebuild the rear axel.
