Product Information

MSRP: $64.95
Average Price: $63.49
Manufacturer: Buchanan
Recommended?
Yes: 7 / No: 0

Seat Riser kits are available in 1", 1-1/2", and 2" lifts. Each kit consists of 8 ea. Black Anodized Aluminum Blocks, 8 ea Grade 8 Bolts and Washers, and instructions. The installation takes about 10-15 min per seat, with common hand tools. One kit elevates both seats. 1" kits are for people 5' 10" and above, 11/2" kits are for people 5'6" to 5'10", and 2" kits are for people 5'-6" and below. Note: These size ranges are very accurate, and fit the vast majority of customers well. If you are built a little differently than "most" we will adjust the sizing accordingly. We do not mix kit sizes for safety reasons, or sell partial kits.

Price: $57.99
Pros: Better viability, more comfortable seat position, quality machining with anodized finish.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: While I like most things about my 2004 TJ, one thing that was a disappointment coming from a 2002 TJ was the seats. I felt like I was sitting in a bath tub with the new lower seat height. I just installed these risers today and I love the new position. I can see better, my arm rests better on the window and my aftermarket center console, and I was able to move the seat a notch closer to the dash which bends my legs into a more comfortable angle. Money well spent in my opinion. For those who are researching these, I am 6' tall and went with the 1.5" riser. I think they're perfect!

Price: $65.00
Pros: Easy install, can see out of the Jeep now. Feel like I'm sitting on the jeep instead of in it. Quality parts.
Cons: Non so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Took a lunch hour on a Saturday at work to install these. Very easy to do, unless your Jeep has a lot of rust, then you might want ot crawl under it and hit the bolts with some PB blaster. Feel like I'm sitting on top of the Jeep now.

Buchanan 1.5" Seat Risers
Price: $64.95
Pros: I can see! Very solid construction, durable, discreet, easy installation.
Cons: Price is rather high.. but worth it.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I'm average height, right about 5' 8", but before installing these seat risers I could barely see the very end of my hood. Now I can see the full hood, and much more of the ground in front of me, especially when off roading on steep inclines/declines.
This set-up is very solid, I've seen no damage at all in the time I've had them installed (about a year now), and they haven't even shifted a bit.
I'm also rather sensitive about my height, and so I really like the fact that these spacers are discreet. Not a single person has noticed them, but I have been told that it looks like me Jeep fits me well.
These things are awesome- for the money, one of the best mods I've done. I highly recommend them!
