WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

Hi All,

We are looking at a new GC but my wife doesn't like the look or feel of the hard seat backs on the front seats - its a deal breaker!!

Does anyone know if we had different seat backs on the WK's down here in Aus?

Thanks in advance!

Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

Seat backs? Do you mean the bit your back is on, or the plastic cover behind the seat that the back seat passengers look at?

Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

Sorry, the plastic bit on the rear of the front seats, ie what the rear passengers would see.

Different to the hard plastic, was wondering if any models had fabric, presumably, I could then by them as a spare part?

Not an issue for me as I will be in the drivers seat

Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

No, pretty sure they all have this hard plastic behind the seat. I like it because the kids can't do as much damage. You could always put seat covers on, that would hide it.

Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

Seems like a strange reason NOT to buy a car?

Maybe order the rear DVD screens, they take up quite a bit of the seat back?

Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

How often will your wife be sitting in the back seat?
I bet my wife wouldn't even know what was on the back of her front seat in the Jeep or her Focus.

^^ I agree.

The second row seats have carpet on the back of them. Maybe put the wife in the boot?

Re: WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

Thanks for the replies guys, typing this from my sleeping bag in the shed as I told her I liked xtrmn8's idea

Seat covers might be the go, might also ask an automotive trimmer if glueing cloth on it would work.

WK Grand Cherokee seat backs

I had an 07 WK before the 12 WK2. The 07 had "leather" seat backs. When loading things in the back with the rear seats down, I constantly had to worry about my cargo poking a hole in the seat backs because of the soft "leather" surface. It was a pain. Plastic seat backs mean this is no longer an issue and you can cram away. If you have kids, the plastic seat backs are also a plus because they are quite indestructible when little feet kick them. I've had the WK2 since December 2011 and the interior has held up flawlessly. I wish I could say the same about the 07 WK which I owned before kid and dogs but that's another story for another day. Just this wife's $0.02. YMMV.
