    Does anyone sell a seat that will work in the rear? Most guys are selling jeep seats. I haven't tried to fit one, so any advice is greatly appricated.

    How about the stocker? They're roll and tumble ('77-'91 anyway).
    Junkyards usally have some decent ones. I just had my rear re-covered at a professional auto upholstry place. $180. They bolsterd up the foam a touch too. Looks and feels like new.

    I was hoping for something that could be laid down flat (reclined), but I may be in for a stock recovering.

    Thanks

    Ahhhh.. I don't think I've ever seen any rear bench type seats that recline. Mabey some newer SUV's have them. Dunno.
    I'm almost positive I've never seen a reclining seat that also fold and tumbles. Mabey it exists, but I've never seen one. I looked alot for rear seat options when I was looking for a rear seat for my K5. Never saw anything interesting. LOADS of jeep seats, and hardly anything else.

    some one wanted a seat for ther suburban that did the same thing, i had the idea, too rase the seat portion 5 or 6 inchs higher and remove the locks that keep the seat back in place, and swap the side so insted of folding forward it would fold back in to a bed.

    i have not tryed it and dont know if it would work.

    but it is an option to explore if youreally want it.

    i know you could buy a 80's chevy conversion van that had an electric rear seat that mad a queen size bed... might be a TAD too large for a blazer though....
