Seat risers- interchangable?

OK so my drivers side seat riser is cracked and rusty, and the bolts are pretty rusty. I found a passenger one on CraigsList for $10. Is there any difference between the two (other than the passenger is a flip forward seat, having a flip on the drivers side seems handy)?

For $10 I think that would be worth it, as long as it will fit. I know the flip forward handle will be on the wrong side, but that can't be too hard to flip or fabricate to the other side. I think it will be easier than trying to get my existing seat frame out without destroying it and then repairing it.

My question is, will it work and has anyone added a passenger riser to the drivers side?

Cheers!

i would think that one side is higher to accommodate the drivetrain if I am remembering correctly. if so, the left side of the riser is higher on the passenger seat while the right side is higher on the driver seat. you know, the hump that runs down the middle of the tub where the transmission and driveshaft, etc run. Seems like I remember seeign that last time I took my seats out.

Go look at the way they mount and the slider mechanism and you will see the difference between the pass side and driver side just in that fashion. THe passsenger side is also one piece as you know for fold and tumble where the driver side is 2 piece. Also the inside mount is lower than the outside so if you reverse them it would be turning the slide mech to the back of the seat.

The passenger side is different and they are not interchangeable.

Some YJ's came with flip driver's and passenger seats and those are interchangeable with stationary seats but not side to side.

Thanks guys! I honestly can say I have not looked at the passenger seat on my YJ yet. It works and is rust free. I have spent a lot of time under my Heep trying to get the stupid riser off without luck. I am afraid I am going to have to cut it off and think I will just try and get a new one rather than fix the one that is rusted, cracked and going to get cut out.
I have found a drivers side flip riser for the same $10 (but on this one I gotta pay shipping too) so it is a non-issue.
