Welcome to the site Grizzlee, check out my pics in my URL and some more in the members section. It is a Quadrax Elite Seat, it has hand warmers, hand guards, rear brake light, lots of storage and a spot fo a 1 gal. gas can or small cooler. It is a super comfy seat and is well made. Good luck.......Irv

This one is from Cabela's. It has lots of room inside and is quite comfortable.

I could not get a box/seat locally, so I had to improvise. I mounted a toolbox with u-bolts, I painted the box with truck bed liner. Then I strapped a pillow made of a zipped laundrybag and hiking matrass foam. Its tough, comfortable, and does not look too shabby!

Anytime. Hope you like it as much as we do. Wife loves to ride back there but lately has gotten the itch for her own ride.

Well, I got the same rear box as it looks like TJ10EC has and I gotta tell you my wife is only 5' tall and when she rides I tie on some stirrups for her from the bottom of the rear rack . . . ok well they're just ropes with loops on them. But it really helps.
Both locks on mine broke within a month of getting it (Still has straps to hold the lid down, but not quite as tight and it gets a little dusty in there) - I would try a differnt brand if I were doing it over.

Of course with her feet in the stirrups I'm not allowed to drive crazy. But then, when she's with me, anything over 10 is, well I can't say it, but if your married you already know. Can you say "nature walk" or "getting passed by hikers"...

I'd suggest if you want to go fast with a passenger, getting a louder muffler, same time you get the box:)

You guys need the rear fender protectors with the foot rests, they are adjustable for different passenger sizes and they actually protect your fenders from scuffs and dings. Most atv places sell them and I don't think they are very expensive.........Irv

Check this Griz out. I believe this is the Kimpex Delux seat. This Griz also has the fender protectors (foot rests) that bolt to the rear rack and the floor board. A couple things to note with this seat, the corners of the seat are notched for the passengers legs. If you get one with a square seat the corners will poke into the passengers legs and get sore after a while. Also, because of the support bar on the rear rack, the passenger seat overlaps the Griz's seat by an inch or so. But if you are like a lot of us, that bar has already been bent and come off so you can move the passenger seat back a couple inches so you can get your seat off without taking the whole thing apart.

We did this low buck set up to see if she liked going along, and now that she likes it, I'm doing it right.I bought the Motovan series B seat box, And bolted it down with the supplied U bolts and steel plates inside the box to give better support. My Kimpex Fender Guards may be here as soon as Friday.

BTW, Here is a pic of the boat seat I mounted on plywood w/ Handles for her to try it out.
