2nd row captains chairs

I am interested in installing 2nd row captains chairs from Dodge Durango in GC. Has anyone tried this or know if this is a simple bolt in swap?

Re: 2nd row captains chairs

The rub will be if the JGC cabin floor even has the mount points. Remember, Durango is stretched 5" to accommodate the third row seating capability, so the floor pan is likely different than the JGC's component.

Re: 2nd row captains chairs

Not sure if this makes any difference, but for what its worth the Grand Cherokee and Durango share the same floor pan shape....I know this because I bought my Weathertech floor liners slightly used out of a newer Durango and they are identical part numbers. So as far as things like that go the first and second row floors are the same lol.
A 4 seater SUV sure would be interesting haha. Not sure how the rear floor would incorporate into the captains chairs. For example, when you lay down the rear seats in the Grand Cherokee the cargo area floor works in conjunction with the seat back to create a flat surface when the seats are laid down. I'm not sure what you would do to figure all that out.

Re: 2nd row captains chairs

JTS', I think it may come down to how things are the same/different from the uplift to the seat platform back. It's true that the contours of the front and middle row are same for both vehicles, but how and where they performed the Durango specific "stretch" and so forth to the floor stamping is going to come into play.

Re: 2nd row captains chairs

The rear GC seats are a 60/40 split so on one side you would have to create mounting points.

Re: 2nd row captains chairs

A inspection of a Durango at the dealership appears to be same mounting points except for center back of 60% side of bench. The buckets fold down and are carpeted on back.
