Jeep Seat for back of Prowler?

Hello,
New to the community, been looking for a while but now I got a Prowler and need to install a rear seat but on a very limited budget, (as most of us are Im sure!) I read a post from the beginning of the year about mounting a jeep seat in the back. Does anyone have pics of the mounting brackets or instructions for how to do it? Found a seat with no brackets for 30 bucks just need to know how to mount. The seat is out of a 1990 YJ. Any help would be cool and I can impart any limited knowledge I have.

the rear seats mount through the bolts in the floor of the bed its pretty straight forward . that jeep seat is gonna be HEAVY ! i would shop Craigs list and get a good used suspension seat from beard or TS , it will run more than a $30 jeep seat but its not gonna weigh as much and probably be easier to mount .but i understand the tight on cash situation

Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

How did you mount them? Did you make or buy a bracket?

I made a braket. Placed angle Iron on the floor of the box. Then used 2" square tubing and flat iron to bolt it to the seat. drilled hole in the angle and used pins to hold it in place. Fastened the seat belts to the seat frame. when it all comes out all that is left is the angle iron in the box.

I found a seat out of a 93 dodge caravan. It has the child seats built in that fold back up into the seat for adults. I thought it was a cool concept and paid 75 bucks for it off craigslist. I used 4 in bolts with big washers and ran them through the fender in the back. I pull it in and out in about 30 seconds using the stock seat latches and it is the perfect fit to fit between the fenderwells. The downfall is it is a bit heavy but for 75 bucks with 5 point harness for the kiddos its hard to beat.

I run a fiberglass Dunebuggy rear seat in mine, very lightweight and was easy to fab a mount for it.
