Default Seat Swap: 2017 Rubicon in 2008 X JK

Hey Hey - I feel like there should be threads on this but I cant seem to find any.

Looking to throw some 2017 rubicon seats in my 2008 X. I've seen some people say need different brackets and others say its straight bolt on.

anyone know definitively?

They bolt in, you'll just have to make the plugs meet up. I have a friend that swapped seats between a 13 and 08.

It’s easily possible. Just use your old seat wiring or seat frame. 13mm nuts hold the seat to the bracket.
