good point!

First Jeep was an 1989 YJ, I've also had a Grand Cherokee. Currently, I have a 99 XJ.

Great Looking Risers. It's Like you read my mind and stole my Idea.

Nice Risers, It's Like you read my mind and stole my Idea.

I was plotting out and trying to figure out a way to transfer measurements while lowering the new risers and making them out of Box Tube & Angle.

Dude I gotta know you're dimensions!!!
I don't have access to welding equipment and don't need any more sunburn than I already get on my Harley and in the Jeep (Topless) ;-)

Please hook me up with as much specific info as possible so I can take it to a Welder here in town and get some fabbed up for my ride.

can just barely get in my new seat and No Tilt Wheel :-(

I'm kinda big in the middle if ya know wehat I mean.
I don't even wanna think how big I'd be if I didn't drink Light Beer :-)

Need specs if you're willing to send them.

they look pretty good,
I put a bench seat out of a 92 dakota up front and made something similar to those, have a thread but the pics are all gone, then put in power heated seats..

same concept, even though there power, when there all the way down there just barely at stock height, maybe a little taller, if i put them all the way up my eyes were over the the entire winshield frame and the steering wheel was damn near between my knees haha

My '91 YJ does not have flip-up risers on the driver's side...

Is there any good reason why the factory stopped making the driver's seat risers able to flip up/forward?

I have the same seats in my jeep. I wanted to keep the flip up capability, and as said before, the original risers are higher in the front, so by shortening the front links of the flip mechanism, they sit level and slightly lower. I just replaced them with shorter pieces of 1/8" X 1" pieces of cold rolled steel with holes drilled in the ends.

Also, Just a warning about those seats, they sun bleach pretty easily. I have had them for about 3 years and keep the top off most of the summer, and my red ones are mostly pink now. Use a bikini if you have one.
