wrong seat riser?

I think I have the wrong driver side seat riser in my cj7. Its the one that was in it when I bought it but the po had some makeshift spacers under it. The passenger riser sits perfect on the floor like its suppose to and the seat its self sits roughly an inch higher than the driver side. Makes me think someone put one in from a different model. Any suggestions?

wow..... where to start... Granted i dont know if there we differences through the years in that area but it looks more like there was a problem with the floorboard/mounting set up. there looks to be at least 2 patches in the front area. Check the upper front edge of the riser under the seat for level against something like the frame or bumper... i'm going to guess that they are close and the problem lies in the floor...

A shot from under would tell alot!


Either that or he was looking for a way to help keep himself from falling out of the jeep by tilting the seat inboard...

The floor pan under the seat is level and hasn't been cut or dented. I've heard of different risers in different models. Just dint know enough about them to know which is which :\

The riser looks correct , the mounting doesn't. spacer thing is wrong and normally not needed and I'm guessing your missing the slider and spacers between the seat bottom and riser top?

I have no idea. It has a slider on it and it works great. Other than this rigging job its a solid riser.

Here's a pic of the passenger side. I measured the risers and the passenger is about 1.5" taller than the driver side. Plus the bases are different as you can tell in this pic of the passenger riser.

That's a passenger side riser. It looks like it has the flip up set up on it. The driver side should be stationary.

They made flip up risers for driver side also as an option

Is your floor rusted out in front of the driver seat if so it may have dropped down. I think it had been mentioned to check the floor.

The floor where the seats mount is good and so is the transverse brace. The only rusted out spots on the floor is in pans forward of seats. The risers are physically different sizes. Like I said the drivers side riser is 1.5" shorter mounting surface to mounting surface.

My passenger side seat sits about 1.5 inches higher because I installed a slider unit on a non-slider riser.
