    Rear seat hinge pin broken?

    Follow up to an old thread for those interested. We took the seat cushion and cover off this weekend and replacing the entire pin was pretty straightforward. All it took was a dremel and grinding wheel to break the welds off the frame. A new ±1/2" steel rod and a lathe to cut a new pin to size...

    Update to an old thread for those interested. Replaced the O2 sensors, gas cap, and the Air Intake Sensor and all the codes seem to have remained cleared with the exception of the Air Intake code. I pick it up tomorrow from the shop and I'll put some miles on it this weekend and see how it does...

    Rear seat hinge pin broken?

    Thanks again. I am just ignorant to welding but after talking to a couple guys who do it for a living and hearing yall's input I feel like I can put that to rest and go on ahead and have them weld a new stud end on it. Appreciate you all and this forum.

    Rear seat hinge pin broken?

    Thanks for the replies, that is what I was afraid of hearing. I don't think I want to rely on a welded pin to keep the seat in place if I ever get hit. Looks like I have a two seater until I replace the seat. Any recommendations on aftermarket replacement seats? All of them are pretty shot...

    Rear seat hinge pin broken?

    Edited to clarify that this is on the front of the rear seat. Not the back side. My seat folds down and flips forward and these two steel ends act as a hinge and a stop for the tub mounted bracket.

    Hey all. I’ve searched and came up empty and it may be a terminology issue since I’m new to the jeep life. The rear seat in my (new to me) 2001 was sitting at an off angle and when I tried to square it up I found that the “hinge pin” that goes in the bracket on one side is snapped off where a...

    I noticed my gas cap just spins and never actually locks in and removing it is more a matter of lucky alignment so I was going to have to replace it.

    Could not get the codes to pop up with the key trick on the mileage but the parts house was open on Easter for some reason and you nailed it.

    Thanks! The seller actually threw in the original 15” rims with 31x10.5 Buckshot Mudders on them as part of the deal since he didn’t need them anymore. I’m thinking of buying Pro Comp 69 Vintage 15x8s and throwing those 31s on them for now because there’s still a lot of life in them. Then I’ll...

    Hey all, new to the jeep club. Picked up a 2001 TJ a few days ago. Never owned one before but I've had the itch since forever and so here we are. 2.5L manual 5spd. It is not going to be a daily driver, nor do I have any intention of rock climbing or burying it in the mud really. At worst I'll...
