    Rear seat removal

    Buying an X4 but have not seen one yet (but will in a few days), so this might be a stupid question... How easy would it be to remove the back seats altogether and reinstall them when I need them?

    I love having the option but would rarely ever need more than 2 seats. Plus it looks ugly with the seats 'stowed away'.

    Please let me know.

    It's pretty easy, only takes a few minutes. I hadn't removed the seat bottoms in this pic, but a bolt or two on each side for the seat bottoms to come out as well:

    Yes it is. Old thread but about to be new X4 owner, pending a bit more research. Was set on the X2 but read the specs closer - turning radius nearly equal, overall length only 5" or so longer. Killer was seat tracks that would collect debris and render the seats non-adjustable without clean out. Looks like the slide brackets and all come out with a few bolts giving it more cargo area than the 2 with the bonus of grandkids in the backseat when needed.

    Tell me if I'm way off on why the 4 is the way to go. I don't care much for the multi-adjustable KYB with too many parameters so the auto-level sounds great. Old guy, mellow trail riding with some rocks now and then..

    Yep, piece of cake pulling the rear seats. Four bolts in each of the seat base brackets and two bolts in the each fold up seat brackets. We pull our seats out quite a bit. It’s perfect for taking our pups out and for extended trips with just two people. I have a 1.5” thick insulated mat that is cut to fit in the back, once the seats are out. It keeps the dogs from getting hot and also keeps gear/game meat from getting warm on hunting adventures. The covered storage space makes it great. I am working on fabricating a set of rear net doors, so that we can stack gear higher during our fall hunting trips. I will share pics once I have that project completed.

    What material is your mat?

    I took a large piece of 1.5” styrofoam and sandwiched it between cardboard, all of which was leftover from a large appliance purchase. After trimming it to fit, I wrapped it in duct tape with overlapping wraps. It works great and only cost me a roll of duct tape.

    If I removed my seats, I would just go to the local farming store and pick up a piece of horse stall matt. They are made from recycled rubber and cut it to fit.

    My primary issue was heat related since I haul quarters of game in the back during hunting season. Without insulation I would have slow cooked caribou or moose on the way out of hunting camp. That’s why I opted for a foam based pad. The secondary benefit was smoothing out surface so the pups could ride comfortably since the back is ridged. If you aren’t hauling meat and need to improve the comfort for pooches, any mat would do.
