Just put the spacers under the rear of the seat. It will raise your bottom up and make your head higher, but won't make you have to have longer legs to reach the pedals.

Looks good. What size and length bolts did you use? Are these all the parts you needed? Puck, Bolt and washer...for each one obviously.

Thanks.
I'm definetly thinking about doing this.

I used (1) 7/16-20x2 hex-head bolt and (3) m8-60 hex-head bolt. Then just (4) pucks cut to size and that's it. Pucks are appx. $.99 around here so this whole project should come in at less that $15 if you wanted to do both seats.

Do you know if the bolt sizes would be the same on all TJ's?

I believe they would be. If you wanted to double check, just take out (2) of the bolts from the passenger seat and take them with you. One will be a T-50 (maybe T-55) Torx bolt and the other (3) will be 13 MM I believe, maybe 14 MM.

Don't even bother online. Just go to your local hardware/Lowe's/Home Depot. Its not an uncommon size and any one of those places should have it.

just curious would this work for the xj ??? in my yj i usually sit with the sterring wheel adjusted all they way down on the tilt which is about 1" or so above my legs when driving, but when driving the xj the sterring wheel is like 2 or 3" away from my legs and it kinda uncomfertable and feels like it doesnt even have tilt, plus i also have to have my arm extended ALOT more then in the yj.... would the seat lift be a good thing to do???

I used a set of skateboard wheels. They cost about $10 for a set of four and give about an inch and a half of seat lift. They are the perfect size and already have a hole drilled, so no sawing or drilling. $2 for longer bolts from the local hardware store and in 10 minutes I was done. Plus they seem to absorb some vibration. Absolutely love it, only problem is now I have to duck under the windshield frame to see the stoplights. Feels like a custom fit Jeep!
