I know there are a few people on here who have raised the rear seat, I know how to raise the front easily, but I would like to raise it about 2" and am confused on how to move up the rear latches, the bottom seems pretty simple though. I have seen pics on here before, but for some reason i cant seem to find them any help? thanks

I believe the guy used some steel plate, unbolted the mount from the seat, bolt up the plate, then drilled the mount/latch to the plate higher up.

Does not look very easy to me though but if you can do it I'd be interested in a setup :p

okay so i never found any pictures, but I figured I would give it a try and I made 4 brackets out of flatstoch steel and 4 spacers out of 1x1 steel tube and raised my back seat 2.5 inches, it still latches and swivels properly, there is just a massive amount of room for a sub box now, I dont have my camera today, but I will be taking some pictures tomorow night for those of you interested

sorry I forgot about the pics but here they are, exuse how dirty the truck is i will be cleaning it tonight, I did weld a pipe on to the bottom of the seat to catch the peg on the floor, but that was not necessary for those without welders, I am going to be adding large neoprene washers to all the pegs in order to hide the holes in the carpet.

all lift in cludes

6 2.5" .75x.75 pipe
2 4" flatstock pieces with holes drilled 2.5" apart
2 4" flatstock pieces with holes drilled for seat lock 2" apart
6 longer bults with same thread as stock bolts
various nuts and bults and washers

install length 1 hr

It will look much cleaner with the neoprene washers and not to be covered in dirt


o i also had to extend the strap to pull up on to unlock the seat i just used some thing i had laying around in the garage

I have a feeling you could make some serious coin on the side if you decided to make these. I know a lot of people would be willing to pay at least 100 bucks for this setup.

My only thought would be to weld a big azz washer on the bottom where the "spacer" and the floor meet. I think it would really help distribute the load a little better and make it a little more stable.

Instead of large washers, I'm using 1 3/4 dia. roundstock. I'll drill in the center and that should support the base better than smaller diameter metals.

I'm still making my kit. I go on midnight shift in 2 weeks and I will work some more on it. I have the run of the shop on midnight without having to hear BS about government work on the clock. I'm a "break-down" electrician when I go on midnight. Thats when I get most of my stuff done, so I can make parts as I need them... As long as I dont get too many fukk up calls.

This is what I have so far. Its the seat risers and the plate adapter for the front plate in the middle. It will lift the seats 2 1/2". I still need to make the back catches. Then the install. I plan on 4 10's forward firing.
