Easy seat lift mod. Takes less than 10 minutes and costs under $10. I used 1" round 25mm thick anti-skid pads, 25mm rubber grommets, and 5/8" bolts. I picked the skid pads up at Home Depot and gained 1.5" of height at the front of the seats and the seats still latch. You could add washers if you need to go higher but the seats may not latch. This will allow for more room for your up/down firing enclosures. Lifting the front of the seat will also allow for forward facing 10's. Mounting depth will be around 10" in the King Cab depending on the magnet diameter.

This rear seat lift does not change the rear headroom. The front is lifted upward at an angle. Headroom maybe 1/4" difference if any. I am 6' 3" and did not notice a difference.

you must have a King-cab?

I experimented with the same thing, but had trouble latching with just a 1/4" spacer.

Thats cool!
I thought about doing something like that but never did. This should give people a few more options for subs as soon as Tech12 figures out what he can do with this mod!

Sorry I coppied Avis. I came up with the idea a while back. I have mentioned it to tech in the past but finally got around to actually doing it. The spacers are not thick at all, but lifts the front quite a bit. Aspect sort of like the Mini Lift.

Home depot makes a kit, it's called rubber pads with adhesive backing.

I'll sell you a kit for 10 bucks + shipping ha ha ha.

BTW "pizzle", I was just busting your balls...totally kidding.


Your kit looks more professionally done and well thought out.

Oh man, I thought you were serious about 10" mounting depth. I thought the rear seats would have to be almost verticle to get that lol. Now I see that fromt eh floot to seat is just under 10", then you need to leave 2 inches from the floor (for example) 8.5 inches then 1.5 inches of MD that leaves about 7inces in the front, probably closer to 6 in the middlewhere the magnet would be.

So this does not atualy Lift the rear seats, it just stops them from floding down as far correct? I know my seats will not latch unless they are all the way down as it is so any lifting and they will not latch.

On the drivers side I can pull the seat up even if it is latched, it does not seem to latch very well or take much pressure to overpower it either...

No Dude. Having 11" from the seat to the floor allows you to front fire the 10's. Front firing the 10's gives your 10" of mounting depth.

This takes advantage of the play in the seats and they still latch, but it really isn't a big deal if they don't. You can also get more airspace out of enclosure this way.

So are actually lifting the seats, or just making them more uncomfortable?

I might be missing something but your not actually changing pivot point of the seat, so aren't you just changing the angle at which they rest?

This is such a slight change in seat angle. You can't really tell the difference. Does not make the seat more uncomfortable what so ever. 1.5" more clearence for subs on the other hand is a huge difference. After you see what I will be doing with my sub that is 11" in diameter and 8" deep I think you will get the picture. This is about as controversial as the Titan not having room for amps.

I am 6'3". The rear head room is unchanged. When you sit in the back seat do the front of the seats touch the back of your legs? NO. This takes advantage of that space.

This is for the rear seat of a king cab, not the front seats. I dont know why you guys think this will make it harder to fit, its not that much of a change. But like P said, it will make a big difference!
