Getting to back seat in a 2-door
You're not the only one. Many people also said you can blame where they mounted the passenger side seat belt. In fact, Jeep changed where they mounted the seat belt from 2007 to 2008.
I'm not sure about new seat brackets, but I find using the driver's side to be easier to load passengers from. Sure, you don't have the easy access lever, but the seat stays forward, and doesn't need to be pushed while you're making your way in/out.
I usually stick the women in the back too. It's quite fun watching them struggle to get in and out :crazy:

back seat forget about it ,this seat is not bad to ride in if only you can get there and like you said if one could get there getting out could be a problem. would like to see someone come up with some mod for this problem

I tried it once to see how bad it was, as it looked bad, I'm 6'4" and it's hard as hell to get back there to apply the 303 to the speaker bar. Don't tell me you think that back seat was meant for full sized adults! Silly 2 Door owner, that seat is for kids!
It's one of the few things they definitely didn't improve upon over the TJ (in fact regressed). Speculation is that the seat doesn't shift forward like the TJ because of the airbag sensor.

when i was shopping for my 08 i was actually told by the dealer that the newer ones would have the flip up front seats like the old jeeps
back seat makes excellent household or garage furniture
I guess thats why my backseat has now become living room furniture,quite comfy actually kinda like a really low loveseat(with yes essentials fabric to boot)maybe I should have made a endtable out of that plastic airdam thingy that was attached to stock front bumper
PS if me and Jeepgirl had kids we probably could not afford this RUBI,2 seats is all we need
did try and get in it once before removing it,I'm only 5"9 and 160lbs and found it very difficult to get in and out so removed it to free up valuable storage space

I wonder if they relocated the sensor in the 09s since it tilt and folds?
