Cheap seat lift

Good day to all .I just thought I would let you know about my cheap seat lift discovery.

I was looking through my Performance Accessory catalogue and seen you can order the body lift puck as singles

So if you want 1" of lift order part #MB01 = 1"H x2"W sells for $1.31 cnd each
and if ya want 2" of lift order part #MB02 = 2"H x2"W sells for $3.99 cnd each

Now you just have to find the right size and lenght of bolts

When I get 'em I'll post the size.

Hope this helps
Mike

I used hockey pucks to raise my seats up. Pucks cost a dollar a piece and spend about $5 for longer bolts and washers.

Im not trying to be a naysayer, but this is the first time Ive heard of a seat lift. What is the advantage of this?

It basically helps the really tall people with legroom. But it also gives you more visibility when looking over the hood.

Finally did this last weekend

I really like the difference I find you sit much better , the wife also find it better.Feel more comfy with the arm on the centre console or hanging off the window

Just a little mod to make you sit 1" higher well worth it IMO

Just made a seat lift out of hockey pucks. I cut them down to squares, as I thought it would look better and a little less like hockey pucks. Pretty easy job. Here are some pics:

Doesn't this create an issue with your legs passing under the steering wheel when getting in and out?

No, There's still plenty of room, at least for me. I definitely like the extra leg-room though. It's also nice to be able to see the fenders finally.

I definitely noticed more, however I am only 5'9. I can now sit in and fully extend my left leg while driving (auto).

While I definately like the idea of more height in order to see better, I really don't need any more leg room. I'm only 5'5" and my wife is 5'4"...she stretches as it is sometimes when driving. Any ideas on improving visibility without having to grow taller first???

Put a set of yellow pages in the front seat?

Ok not really. My wife is 5'0 and doesn't really drive my jeep that much. I didn't do the passenger side specifically for that reason. If you find yourself stretching to get to the peddles, just pull the seat up a bit. Aside from raising the seat, I can't think of any ways to increase your visibility while driving.

I recycled the pucks from my transfer case drop to lift my drivers seat. One of the best cheap mods I've done.

i unno if i can go with a higher seat lift...my legs hit the steering wheel already...and my heads not to far from the roof. the only thing i can think of is fabing up something to make my seat flush with the end of the cab.
