My tj is my DD and it doesn't look right when the backseats are out, especially with the top down. its fun watching passengers climb up the rear wheel and through the roll bar to sit down. I find the rear leg room is the same as many other 2 door car. When I off-road, sometimes I take out the rear seat and lay the spare in the tub and strap it down for lower CG and better view out the back but other than that, the rear seat is always in. you can keep a bungy cord in your tj and tilt the seat up when you need more space and use the cord to keep the seat from falling back down. tilting it up gives you a lot of space cuz it pretty much sits above the leg room when its up.
