Default TJ seats in a YJ?

Looking at getting a set of seats for the YJ. I was wondering if anyone has put TJ seats in their YJ? I know it's not a direct bolt in and I'd have to drill some holes in the seat brackets, but I'm mainly wondering if there are any difference in the size or thickness of TJ seats vs YJ seats? Are the seats pretty much the same size and the only difference is the seat brackets? I just don't want to get something that puts me too high or too close the steering wheel.

I found a set of those camo TJ seats from a Willys edition TJ. I think they would look pretty sweet in my YJ.

Thanks

I mounted some TJ seats in a friends YJ. You can modify the YJ bracket to fit the TJ seat but the seats will be ridiculously tall. His head was sticking above the cage. I made a substructure off the roll cage to mount seats to.

Thats what I was afraid of. I kind of figured they would be too tall if I used the YJ seat brackets. Thanks for the info Tolly.

Okay. What if I get TJ seat brackets to go with them? Will TJ seat brackets bolt into a YJ or is the floor pan different?
