    Binding/Deformed/Misaligned Seat Backs and Loose Fabric

    Anyone else have misaligned seat backs and loose fabric (on the back of the seat backs) in their Wrangler?
    Ours is the Sahara trim.
    Not really getting anywhere with the dealership.
    Tried reaching out to JeepCares via PM, but their message box is at full capacity...

    Haven't seen that issue before. Sounds like your dealership is not customer friendly

    Me, neither.

    I see a slight difference in the height but nothing I would consider out of the ordinary for any vehicle. Now if one of the seats is binding while folding or something mechanically failed, I could see it being a problem. Maybe I'm not seeing what OP is trying to picture here.

    Maybe he just needs a really fat person to sit in the seat a couple of times.

    It doesn't show well with the picture being rotated...
    If you click the link in the post, it is more apparent.

    The right side sits lower than the left and is also further "back" than the left.
    The fabric is also clearly pinched/sagging/gathered.

    And yes, there is "binding" when laying the right side flat...
    We (us and the dealership) have looked at all of the other Wranglers in inventory, and none are like this...

    I fixed your photo. Have you gotten the service manager involved? If the seat is binding, they should be taking care of this.

    Should have bought a Tesla. You would be happier.
