    Default WTB: FSJ J-10/Gladiator Bench Seat

    Looking for a bench seat from a 60s/70s/80s Jeep full size truck. Really struggling with this one. Looking for usable condition or better, no parts/rebuilders seat please.

    Good luck finding your unicorn. If you find two of them let me know. Doesn't have to be in great shape, I have a nice Afghan blanket over mine I don't mind reusing. Just need one good enough that it doesn't give me a back ache every time I drive my truck.

    If you're not picky on original equipment I've heard the back seat from an older Mercedes (80s/90s) works well.

    Think I've found one, guy from a FB for sale group saws he has a few. I'll find out and let you know.

    Its not going to be OE anyways, going into a M715, I just know these things are narrower than full size chevy/ford, and the jeep seat is a direct bolt in for me.

    Thanks. Is there much in the northeast? All the FSJ owner and enthusiast groups I'm on most everyone is out west. I have had parts shipped cross country for my truck before but something as big as a seat I don't think would be worth the hassle.

    I've heard the late 90s Dakota bench seat works well in our trucks so I'll try to find one of those in a junk yard. May as well use that opportunity to patch some small holes in the floor behind the seat too so that'll be a later this year / this winter project anyway.

    Hey Bigshot,

    So, most of the guys are out west but there are a few of us out here. I know that there are at least 5 or 6 pretty active guys in MA, NH and ME.
