Swapping To Buckets

Recommended Posts

Is there a thread on this? I tried a search but came up with nothing. I have an 89 MJ and picked up some good leather buckets from an XJ. I put then on manual tracks from an 89? XJ and when I went to install then the studs didn't line up. Do I need MJ mounts only? Did they change bolt pattern from year to year?

You're going to need either MJ bucket brackets or adapt the brackets on the bottom of your bench. There is a really good write up.


Or you could fab something up with the XJ brackets you have and put new studs/bolts. You're going to have to mess around with the floor pan though.

I was planning on using the info in the link to mount my buckets, but fortunately an MJ with buckets showed up in the wreckers this week, so I grabbed the brackets today and mounted the seats. I can sure see why I should find some seats from a 2DR Limited if there ever was such a thing. I want to stick with the leather. I suppose if a guy was ambitious one could swap the leather upholstery to some 2DR seat frames. Maybe another day.
