rear bench seat lift kit? ExCab

This is a discussion on rear bench seat lift kit? ExCab within the Audio/Video Electronics forums, part of the General Discussion category; I have heard about these - anyone know where I can look into such an item? More room means BIGGER ...

    I always make my own, the last one i did was in a 2001 F-150 just get unbolt the seat and take it out find our how much you can/want to lift the seat go to metal shop have some metal square tubs cut to equal that hight. You can always use MDF blocks ive done it before but preffer to have the metal.

    IBThumpin makes them or he can also hook you up with his design. I think from what I remember was he was selling them for like $30 for a pair. Nice and strong so no worries there.

    I have a friend who says he knows how to do it on an OBS. We were gonna do it to mine, but i decided to say screw it. I built a big box that just sits in the floor with the seat folded up

    Just make a block that you install between the seat and base brackets. Sorry I do not have photos of the ones that I hae done. I have used both 1x1 and 2x2 tubes. You can get 1x1 from Home Depot if that is enough.

    The OBS seats are mounted differently than the NBS because of the NBS having 4 doors. The OBS trucks mount to pegs that are in the sides of the cab, thus making it difficult to do.

    the only reason I cant make them for OBS is that I dont have access to an OBS to pattern off of.

    i made my own obs lift, just a few peices of really thick diamond plate. only problem was the seat belts wouldn't reach, so i had to make a lift for them too, and reinforced the hell out of it. the whole thing seems stronger than stock
