Rambling, Malarky, Rants, Etc... / M D Jaun Rear Seat Issue
« on: November 24, 2015, 04:49:35 PM »
I will post some pictures tomorrow but I wanted to do an update to my rear bench seat frame. I purchased a new bench seat frame and much to my surprise it was a short back brace (13 1/2"). Back pan matches bottom pan - okay no problem Beechwood Canvas did an outstanding job on the seat covers.

This is the big problem - during the FCT my son and I were sitting in the back seat and all of a sudden we both felt like the seat leaned back! Upon further inspection the seat did "recline" about 1 1/2" just far enough to rest on the tailgate. I noticed where the paint at the radius from the seat bottom to the back brace had flaked off on both sides. Now both my son and I don't weigh over 350 combined so what happened? My guess is that the seat tubing is very thin compared to original equipment. This really bites.......I was able to bend the bench seat back into normal position but I know this is just a temporary fix. If this thing moves again I'm going to throw this POS away and look for an original bench seat.

Sending pictures tomorrow..........

Rambling, Malarky, Rants, Etc... / Car Hauler Trailer

Just curious - any of you out there that have a car hauler trailer with wood flooring. I am looking at both wood and diamond plate (about $1000 higher).

If I rent for 8 days for FCT it will run about $500 at UHAUL.

Not sure if the diamond plate option is much better than wood floor - I need to make a decision really soon - Just looking for some input from my CJ3A friends.

I am taking a hint from athawk11 and starting my project thread. I really enjoy looking at all the progress that everyone does on their individual projects and very informative.

I will post some pictures tomorrow of the starting point with my 49 leading up to the current status of frame painting.

Got my springs yesterday from KW. Nothing like an early Xmas!
