I'd rethink that.You can order PA 1" BL blocks for 99 cents each.

I went with the Rough Country 1.25" seat riser kit; it was like $35.00 or so to do both passenger and driver's side. Came with new hardware.

I was getting leg cramps driving long distances (I'm tall) with the Jeep, and I was considering dropping some serious money on Corbeau aftermarket seats, but thought I'd try this first. It did the trick - no more leg cramps. I drove the Jeep to Moab last year (2200 miles round trip) with no leg cramps.

Love my RC seat riser kit.....but it was missing 2 spacers out of the box. I only lifted the drivers seat. My mrs picked up the kit as a gift, I am not sure where the other 2 spacers went...but I can make a good guess!!

I went with the Buchanan aluminum ones. A bit more than using BL pucks. Generically very happy though with seat higher.

I have the RC kit... simple install. really feels better being able to see over the front of jeep... after a week of driving your body adjusts (shifting and seat edge under knees felt weird at first when shifting)...

I need to see one of these in person. I cant figure out why anyone would need seat risers. I am not far from the roll cage as it is.

You have short legs and a long torso. They lowered the seats in 03'.

* Seat Changes:
o Additional 20 millimeters of rearward travel
o Taller seat backs
o Softer seats
o Seats are lower sitting (more like a car)

For guys that have these installed, are there any problems tilting the seats forward?

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

If your seats tumble it can lead to seats hitting steering wheel/windshield a little easier. In fact, I think there was a thread once where somebody cracked their windshield on the passenger side. Personally, no problems.
