Broken Drivers Seat
 
Has anyone else had their drivers seat brake off the frame that holds it onto the car?
Love my Jeep, but this was kinda upsetting. I just think it should never break off.

I break seats in every vehicle I use because i'm a big boy and sometimes things get a little rough. It's normal if your a big dude.

This is a real common problem in WJ. I've had mine welded twice. First time it was at a Vocational School and teacher told me there was a design flaw with the rear brackets having too much stress on them. I'm a big guy too so that definitely contributed but I read a few things online that 110# women were flung into the backseat getting on the Highway. Chrysler should have recalled it but doesn't want to call it a safety issue.
Best used price I have seen was $200 for leather, and it was pretty worn.

Good Luck!

I finally found a good salvage yard near me and just found an exact replacement for my '00. $75 take it out yourself. Hollands in Billerica, MA. They have about a dozen Wj's with mixed parts.
