Default 80 jump seats in a 40?

Anyone ever done this or know if they're even close to the right size? I like the seats in mine, and am always on the look out for something comfortable for my Father in laws 40. He has a single bucket back there now.

I don't know about 80 series seats, but at Wednesday's meeting I saw seats out of a Disco in Will's truck. They fit inside the stock roll bar very nicely. Will mentioned that it took some very careful measurements to get the holes correct.

Where there's a will and a welder, there's a way. It's not going to be a bolt in solution.

Here you go

A guy on MUD asked about this question last year...I happen to have an 80, and a 40, and 3rd row seats from an 80, AND after he asked the question it piqued my curiousity as I am still not sure what to do for rear seats in my 40...

Measurements, pictures, etc. Enjoy and hope it helps

Jeff- you my friend, are the undisputed King... of random research. Awesome write up. I agree, fold and tumble all the way, but the integrated belts are nice.

I've seen on MUD where others have used back seats out of S10 blazers, explorers, etc. Seems like any of the smaller mid-size SUV back seats would be potential candidates to fit.

yeah but they won't be leather with 6 different recline positions.. that is what you're going for, right Gary?

So far....nothing

I'm what you would call a "collector" of parts more so than a "user" of parts...just ask Wes

I've got the Trailblazer seats sitting in it for now that you can see in the pics...Those would be great if they weren't so dang big. Then I've got two sets of Durango second row seats sitting in my garage waiting to be cut up and trial fitted...In the end I'll end up with one of those two options most likely because I've already sunk the into the stuff...I like the Trailblazer seats for the integrated seat belts but I don't like the overall size of them. I like the Durango seats for the fold and tumble aspect that should work and the size is better.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd just buy one of the Bestop fold and tumble seats and call it good...Would have saved me some $$ and thinking about it all

Why thank you sir - I've done my fair share of the archane research and posts on MUD
