I believe, after some research, they are the stationary type brackets from 76-86 CJs. They are definitely factory pieces.

Try a good quality cobalt bit (not the big-box brand name, the element cobalt) to drill hardened metals. Works good. Get good ones- hardware store mass-market cobalt drill bits don't last any longer than really good HSS bits.

How many old threads actually convince *you* to read all 36 pages? http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/length-envy-build-thread-629700/

That would make sense if they're CJ brackets.

My 76 cj5 has brackets that are the same as my 87 brackets. Well, look the same but probably dont bolt in.

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

That is good to know! I will have to make sure to switch that from my '89 winter beater to my '91 'keeper' project. I would hate to not tilt the seat... THANKS

Dang, that looks like a lot of work for some seat risers. If it works for you that's all that matters.

BTW, anyone else reading this in the future, here's the basic angle and 1" tubing set up I did.

I don't have any real detailed pics or diagrams etc. just some shots to get the idea....
















Hope that's helpful to someone.
You have any measurements for your brackets and how much did you drop the seats?
