    backseat for a CJ5--will a YJ backseat fit?

    I have a 1980 (ish. . b/c really, it's a Frankenstein jeep) CJ5 and I need to put a backseat into it. I think I need a fixed back 36"
    Before I run about and drop a bunch of money on a new one, would an old YJ backseat fit? I've heard and read lots that go either way-but I think sometimes people start thinking about front seats instead of back seats.
    Anyone have a CJ5 that they were able to install a YJ backseat into?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Of course every time we remove/order a part, we realize that the parts inside the Jeep aren't exactly what originally came on it!

    Okay, but will the brackets fit? YJ seats fold and secures as it's folded--but the CJ isn't fitted for a folding seat.
    So, can I secure it with YJ brackets? Doesn't seem like it. Would CJ brackets fit the YJ seat without having to fold it. . .

    I'm sorry, but I'm still confused. If I need to fold the YJ seat to fit into the brackets, there won't be room in the CJ to fold the seats. Would using CJ brackets fix that?
