1990 XJ seats in a MJ


Recommended Posts

Yes, but you'll have to swap the seats onto the MJ floor pedestals as you know.
 
Are those the "rocking chair" style of seats? They kinda look like it.
You're talking about the part that actually bolts to the floor? That is shown in the pic as xj?
Just making sure cuz theres a lot of confusion about my mj seat brackets and what they work with 07074a71023e1fb6e5ddb9832aa114f9.jpg

The floor pedestal is what I call the thing that connects the seat to the floor pan. Those are XJ "rocking chair" floor pedestals. I can tell because the legs are very short and there is no "hump" on the front.

 

He just needs to remove the butt cushions, and transfer his seats over to a set of MJ bucket seat pedestals, or converted bench pedestals.

Yeah. The curved track mechanism is part of the floor pedestal. He'll lose that feature when he swaps to the MJ floor pedestal.
I have a stock bench. Everything I need is already there, correct?

Yes. Confirmed today that factory mj buckets and xj buckets work with my brackets.
Just not sure on the curved "rocking" style yet.

The "rocking" mechanism is part of the floor pedestal so it's independent of the seat.

Be aware that the "rocker" seats on stock MJ (any MJ) brackets will make your final seat height about 2" taller.  Doesn't sound like much, but if you're taller than 5'8" you won't like it.  I'm 5'11" and my head was rubbing the headliner.  I hit my head getting in and had to skooch down to look straight ahead.They were in my truck for about 2 hours before I took it all apart and found the correct (MJ or XJ) seats.

I know I keep going off topic here talking about my repop brackets but this is what I needed to know and had talked to a few people about!

Any factory xj or mj seat will fit on my brackets, but cushion heights will be the only varying thing

MJ Brackets, are NOT the Same as XJ Brackets!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MJ Buckets Seat Brackets are NOT the same as MJ Bench Seat Brackets!!!!!!!

The Front Mount may be the same, but the Back Mountings are NOT!!!

In Addition, the MJ Bench Seat Brackets, do NOT have the Second Seat Slide Track for Bucket Seats!!!!!!

Take a Good Long Look, You will see, MJ Bucket Mount Track is DIFFERENT than MJ Bench Mount Track.

Say I am wrong, you gotta be some special kind of Stupid.

Were not talking about the sliders either. Just the part that mounts to the floor, like in my pics.
Yes, the bench only has 2 tracks while the buckets have 4.

This . There is no reason for name calling , it's a discussion and I will prove what I'm saying is correct . Here is MJ bench and bucket seats sliders next to each other , you CAN use the floor brackets (both are the same see picture ) . I never said the sliders were the same ....

Maybe you can provide some pictures. Because this topic was discussed for months before I made these and nobody could post pics or knew the difference...

Any info is helpful

Look at the drawings of the Mounting Brackets I posted.

The Bucket and Bench Brackets are Clearly Different.

That's just a drawing... I need some real life pictures to convince me....

Adam posted a pic of bucket seat brackets from an mj, you can tell by the rear mount hes holding the bench seat bracket next to and they look the same.

Do you still have the jeep you had to order the brackets for?
