Seat risers

Ok,

I have aftermarket seats I installed last year. I have had it with them. They sit way to damn tall, and my head hits the sound bar constantly and I hate that, as well as being so damn uncomfortable in the things.

My wife, on the other hand, loves the super tall seating position. This is because she is fracking short.

Does anyone make/sell a LOW PROFILE seat riser? I could lower the seat by removing the slider mechanism, but then the seats are set only for me, and she likes to drive the Jeep in bad weather (and I drive her new Dodge Ram Crew Cab 4x4) with the Rambox.

I just want the driver's side, the pax side can stay tall for all I care

I just had this issue with the Mastercraft Rubicon seats i put in. I HAD to take the sliders off the driver side. They were way too tall. They are great now that the sliders are off. I couldn't find an after market seat bracket that sits lower. Some guys chop and modify but for me it was easiest just to take the sliders off. Let me know if you find some after market risers that accommodate after market seats. It sounds like this is an issue with Almost ALL aftermarket seats.

Cut out 1-2" and then weld the riser back together, if you want to keep the slider. Pretty easy if you can weld. (I haven't done this, BTW, but I have considered it)

Does your 94 have the flip forward riser on the Driver's side? (My 95 doesn't flip forward)
