Love the fab skills...looking forward to pics from your trip. I am on my way home from our annual Rubicon trip, SonicR1 joined us again and is now officially part of our group and it is nice to meet and develop a friendship with a fellow JeepForum member. MOAB will happen one day...

More work on the 5. Since MoC is 6'1" I decided to lower the passenger seat. So one of the advantages of lots of Jeep parts is being able to go to the shed, grab a set of non tilt drivers side seat brackets. So they can be bolted in the passenger side, to lower the seat by close to 2"!!!!
I lost the tilt forward, o well no big deal. Don't use it except to clean, and put my air bottle in.

Cause it's a 5 it's still tight. But it's my 5, and I like it.
Here's your seat buddy .

He even has a personal fan, next to the O ***** bar. And if that's not enough, a Kawasaki speaker.

Ok, truth be told, I did this for Vicki, she always says she feels like she's sitting on the Jeep, not in it. MoC is just reaping the benefits.

And thanks men,

I always felt that with mine too... and I'm 6'2". Aftermarket seats just sit so much higher. I plan on cutting an inch or so from my tilt bases one day cause I don't want to give up the sliders.

I guess being 5'9" has advantages. Disadvantages also, seems like I'm always the last one to know its when its raining.

Why is there an Acetelyne regulator sitting on the console? Water bottle holder???? My guess is if it ain't stapped in it won't stay in his Jeep.

Doh, it's in the factory consul. Towards the back, you know, the OEM spot.
