when driving the hinged portion is folded up, pull into your favorite spot to camp push the seats all the way up and fold the hinged portion down and you have about 5'9'' of space to sleep which is enough for me ! Works good . I took it out in three minutes last night and seats are back in, legs fold up out of the way when stored away
Not too bad for using up left overs from other projects, only had to buy the piano hinges, will now finish it off, install some trim around the edges, stain it a dark oak and be done :wink:

I like it, and you say the seats go in and out fairly easy? That is really the only way I would do something like this is if I can put the seats back in fairly quick.

I slept in the back of my kj a while back during a turkey hunt and it wasn't so bad. I am 6'3". So it was cramped but it worked. Put the sleeping bag back there and slept at an angle. I used some foam mats too because those seat backs are not soft. Anyway, nice work! :wink:

when i was in highschool i commuted to a local college for morning classes.. and between a few classes i had about 2 hours to burn.. i'd take naps in the back of the KJ and it worked great! ... just lay down a sleeping bag and it's perfect.. and i'm 6'1".. however i could see how this completely flat set up would work much better than the not so flat folded rear seats

At least your 2006 seats fold flatter than our older models.

Go check out a 2002-2004 KJ. They aren't even close to yours. My guess would be about a 30-35 degree angle for our rear seats folded down.

Well thats great for more than one night, and I have a 28 foot motor home for the extended trips, but for one night of wheeling all day , hit the camp ground tell lies and then to bed this works, plus my wife needs a full bath/kitchen etc ( or thinks she does) and she doesn't like to 4 wheel that much so dragging all that along is not really a viable option.

Our seats ( 02-04s) are more like ramps than a fold down seat area, everytime I have to fold mine down I find myself trying to push down on the seat trying to get it to go farther!

Sport Its just a Starcraft 1404 2001 weighs 1480 lbs has single king pull out bed on front end and wrap around seating in rear that converts to a single bed.
has 3 way fridge and furnace. I stripped out the fold up sink ,AC on roof and stock 4 burner stove to lighten it up for mtn pass driving. I converted a propane colman stove to mount outside I wont cook inside (bears) I put the sink in the now lower cabinet Its comfy when we go to Co. for 2 weeks at a time.
