    Innovative JK Products was the first to introduce the Rear Seat Recline Kit for the JK and we are now proud to continue the product for the new JL Wrangler! Made with all the same high quality materials as the original kit right here in the USA.

    We like to call it the JL Lounge! Jeep did a great job improving the overall comfort and design of the rear seat. However, this kit will allow you to gain about 2 inches of additional rear seat recline (measured at headrest) to create the rear seat JL Lounge!

    1) How does it work?

    The kit essentially "rocks" the rear seat assembly backwards approximately 2 inches (measured at headrest) by introducing the smaller spacers between three(3) of the six(6) main mounting points. Once the seat is "rocked" back, the four(4) front legs are lifted off the floor. The four(4) larger spacers fill in the space between the leg base and floor so the angle between the lower and upper seat sections remains the same as from the factory (and why the spacers are of different sizes). This also allows the seat to fold up and down as normal from the factory.

    2) Why not more recline?

    It would be great to get more recline to further improve comfort. However, it comes down to one word, SAFETY. As mentioned above, the spacers have been optimized to provide the maximum amount of recline angle without modifications or unnecessary stress to the factory components. In order to get more recline modifications would be required to the factory brackets, more stress would be induced to the factory brackets, and/or bolt engagement would be reduced at three(3) of the six(6) main anchor points. Innovative JK Products believes these are unnecessary safety risks.

    3) Does the rear seat have to be completely removed to install the kit?

    No: The kit is installed with the seat in place. Once the four(4) bolts on each of the four(4) legs of the lower seat section are removed (allowing the lower seat section to be raised) access is easy to three(3) of the main mounting points of the rear seat where the recline is introduced. The three smaller spacers are placed between the floor and bracket of the forward mounting point of those three(3) brackets. This is what provides the recline. The four(4) larger spacers then go under the four(4) legs of the lower seat section to fill in the gap as a result of the seat being reclined. The ratio of the amount of recline to how much the legs are lifted is not 1:1 which is why the spacers are of different thicknesses.
