Re: Rear seat recline kit?

that's all I've seen as well. It seems like Jeep could make a rear seat with some type of recline / seat back adjuster on it.

I ordered and used these its not a mechanical solution but it works well. It gives you a fixed position that is better than stock.

The European Wrangler brochures mention that on the 4-door, their rear seat reclines. If true, it would be nice if Jeep offered such on US Wranglers, even if such meant we would have to live with the 3 head rests too.

Though, let me add, that I could not verify that "recline" means the same as what we think it does. "Recline" could be what Europeans (the British?) call the feature, that we here in the US call "fold down". Yea, unlikely, but I thought I should mention the possibility. I wish I could have found a picture of their rear seat actually shown reclining back, then I would be more certain.
